    surely it would be best to get a 125? Totally scooters have a PX125 going cheap.



    Should be a good first bike?

    It's a bit of a bugger fitting a lardie engine into a smallie as the rear shock mounts need relocating and IIRC the main mount needs re fettling (which is the reason you don't see many kicking about)

    IMO you'd be better getting a PK engine in a the 50 spesh when you get it and look at the parmakit or falc 125 cylinder conversions - if set up right they will match 210s and rung rings round a std. T5!

    wouldn't put a lardie into a smallframe if i was you mate Smile
    i bought a pk with a px125 in and the handling is poor so had to buy a v50 engine for it.
    It's a lot of messing around and it doesn't feel too great when riding Smile
