So it's been 5 months since the bug bit me. Been enjoying every moment spent with my matic GT200.

Perhaps the only issue I have with it is the lack of aftermarket parts and accessories made available for a modern vespa.

And a borderline ADHD case like me requires a plethora of options to keep the mind and body calm.

So last week, I did the unthinkable...

Much to the disagreement of my MTB buds, I swapped my Niner Jet 9 Frame for a beat up PX....

so here she is...












Brought it to Scooterdepot and its now up to the genius hands of Sir Eugene and his crew














I can't wait!!!!

Abangan!

Sir estimate is 40K but all exterior... no kits or aftermarket parts for the engine...
includes repaint, new rims and hubs, shocks, seats... etc

Yez sir!! Suggestio are welcome  ;D

- 2-tone paint (mas unique mas interesting) usually they look at vintage car paint scheme on this
- if you go chrome, have all the little thing in chrome, levers, boots, brake pedal, kick, etc..  just include all the "exposed" parts
- change all the "exposed" nuts and bolts to stainless steel!  iwas kalawang ka na...
- "undercoat" the body, usually those exposed to putik...  get the usual undercoat that is used in car painting...  undercoat then patungan mo na lang ng body color
- if you want the engine rebuild, this is the best time!
- check the wirings/harness baka mas mabuti palitan mo na lahat...
- go for some basic SAFETY upgrade e.g. headlight, busina yong pang kotse na pakabit mo, disc brake is the budget permits, tubeless rim and tire?
- you can actually customized the cover of your buddy seat!  bili ka ng type mong tela at pagawa mo sa gumagawa ng car seat covers!

and might be needed, update the "legal" requirements...  change ownership/colour, update registration!

goodluck bro... and nice meeting you last satuday!  keep us posted.

BTW, check barnz latest PX project, for sure you can learn from there.


cheers,
