    I quite fancy doing a smallie at some point myself - I reckon either a primmy done like an old school racer, or a chopped PK.

    Plenty of speed, not a bank breaker Very Happy

    I think smallframes Wally are becoming a bank breaker
    popularity increase in them has made prices shoooot right up

    I think you should go the chopped pk route tho. I may dig out mine tomorrow and get a pic for peeps to have a gander

    That reminds me:

    How many dead tramps can you fit in a garage?

    ...4 more if I move my scooter

    Aint that usually the way?! There'll not be a classic scoot that's not desirable shortly - people are even resorting to restoring cosas now Rolling Eyes

    That reminds us Shaggy - you couldn't recommend someone that could do the porting on my polini? I had a quote from chiselspeed yesterday of £150 for the work on bare cases and the crank opening; could be the going rate, but I've always found chisel to be a bit pricey

    I wouldn't mind getting a v90 or 100 sport for a project after i get my special back.
    I know someone with a lightly chopped pk frame with forks that can have the disc brake conversion on em.
    Comes with headset and a v5 just needs a loom and a engine.
    I don't want a chopped scoot though.
    Anyone fancies it PM and i'll send your details through Smile
