This is my first post in this forum. I have a 1981 P-200-E Motovespa. My goal is to make a café-racer with it. I have seen lots of tuning articles in this web site, and I have already ordered some indeed. Of course, I have some questions that hopefully some of you can answer.
- I have seen the wide tyre kit; Is it useful for high speed cornering? or is it just good-looking
-I have the intention of installing a modern Vespa front fork with disk brake. Is this really necessary(I think so)? or maybe with a semi-hidraulic grimeca kit will do.
-After more than 20 years with the same engine, I want to rebuild it, giving it a sportier heart. What do you recommend me? I don´t want to spend a great amount of money, and so I assume I won´t have the fastest vespa… Maybe Malossi 210 and polini exhaust? what do you think?
-I have had very good experiences with plastic gasket instead of paper gasket in a T3 primavera. Is this plastic gasket suitable for the crankcases? I imagine it is not suitable for the cylindr head because the compression ratio is modified, but is it ok for the rest of the cylinder?
Thanks and I am looking forward to reading from you:
