Hey guys, nice resto's. I bought my PE175 for $50 with a melted piston. I gave it new piston rings and rebore and it was off from the get go. On the first weekend my mate said how do you steer that thing, I asked why? He said that front wheel is never on the ground..haha. It hammed and in the tighter stuff i kept it up to an IT490. It eventualy did the big end and i sold it as is for $125 and went to the pub... haha. I was told it was a police bike, not sure on that story, but supprisingly fast. Maybe had the restrictor removed as mentioned earlier in the thread. Some nice examples guys.
