    nice one! just gota spray the back wheel aswel and get a Star cover onit

    I dont no if i like the front rack tho, one min i do the next i dont, is it too far forward like to mich of a gap between the scoot and rack?

    And yea normally they have the rally type horncast, someone has put a px one on at some point.. will change it back one day.

    No built like that, its based on a vespa sprint veloce the only real diffrence is that box cosmetically anyways

    Bajaj where orignal a company owned by piaggio that produced bajajs under licence from piaggio for the indian market, until 1972ish i think when piaggio sold bajaj

    The chetak was built based on the sprint veloce frame with either a 150 or 125 engine, with 12v electronic egnition.

    Not bad bikes in my opinion.... ive had two now and there just the cheaper version of a old shape vespa in my opinion

    only thing with having the 2 boxes is that you cant carry a spare though :S

    The later Cheetak didnt have the rally type horncast tho. Thats why the previous owner has put a px one on

    We had and lml t5 at one point, had the wired indicator set up on it.

    I am sure the middle one is a bajaj legend with the four stroke engine?

    Think they have recently stopped, a message from one of there biggest dealer in the USA

    "We have sold the last of our Chetak scooters and Bajaj Auto will not be building any more
    of these classics. Bajaj Auto has"retired" the Chetak tooling and closed the plant.

    There is no truth to the rumor that Bajaj Auto will be making more Chetaks.
    There are still a few Chetaks available at some Bajaj dealers but sales move
    too quickly for us to monitor accurately. "

    Do they have a 5 port barrel rather than a machined casing?

    Search bajaj in images tho they made loads of types of bikes, even a car haha

    And yea the stella and LML are the same.
    I actually prefer it to the T5 i had one before the T5 aswel and i missed it loads. The T5 had a really Floaty feel to it, hard to describe but it was becasue of the modern suspension and what not you didnt feel as connected to the road as you do on this

    most would prefer that but im strange haha

    And im into my mod style so the T5 didnt really win my heart there.
