I've got someone who will give me a very cheap deal on a PX200 which needs a little tlc. There is also a wreckers nearby that has a GTS 250ie with a working engine and electrics.

This leads me to thinking of combining the best of two - the PXs' good body and the GTSs' engine..

How easily can I put the GTS250 engine into the PX200 frame.
-Not possible.
-Will need lots of building.

cheers

No one has done this, that I know of.

It would be a huge job to do well.

The PX would be nice all by itself, IMHO.

This might give you an idea of what is involved, Lambretta style.

You'll need to buy Motorsport's "PX Stretcher" tool. Razz emoticon

Not possible without distorting the PX frame to the point that it no longer even vaguely resembles the PX.
