SX200 Restoration Project
Finished!Go ride your awesome bike!
I spent a lot of time tweaking the bike to make sure everything was running right. During the build I chipped the paint in a number of places, got frustrated and quit a few times, and generally berated myself for not getting some details perfect. But ya know what...after all was said and done I'm super happy with my bike and I think it turned out great. It runs like a clock, shifts like butter, and starts quickly every time.
I rip around town all the time and feel a great sense of pride in the fact that I restored the bike myself.
This poor bike had been beaten like a rented mule all of its life and now it lives again with fresh parts and a warm garage. Hopefully it will be around longer than me.
A few notes about my bike:
- Progressive fork springs
- Nylon cable outers
- Rebuilt motor
- 12v Electronic ignition
- Original SX200 from Germany (Scoot66 imported bike)
- Frame straightened and dialed in by Casa Lambretta
- Forks checked by Casa Lambretta
- Softer clutch springs
