a GS160 was the "tuned option" of the day, so you don't have any options other than some porting, jetting and exhaust options. nothing on a GS/SS motor works on a P and vice-versa. only carb you can use is the 27 mil that comes with it.

if it were me, I'd sell/trade your P project for a P200 motor and do my set up instead of kitting the smaller block. Stock P200, 24/24, stito road exhaust, euro stator, ducati cdi. I actually use both GS160 and P200 bellow. neither will work alone.

cables... go with GS160 cable set save for the throttle. use a standard throttle cable (sprint/vbb)

Thanks Joe. I could easily pull the P200 engine out of my red bike and use that. Then I can finish up my other engine and put it in the blue P as I originally intended and just have the red frame as a spare, or find another engine of whatever kind and let my boys ride the red one. If they beat it up a little, no big deal. :roll:

I'll have to take a look at your bellows set up.

Jeffrey, this just came up. sounds like there is a P200 motor with it. talk them down to $500, keep the motor and sell off the rest. could be a great deal on a rebuildable motor. it won't last long...

I'm gonna be cleaning out and organizing my garage in the next little bit. I think I'm going to put the single cab project on hold and focus on the GS project for the summer. 8)

I will definitely need a seat. I will also need a cowl. May need some shifting tubes for the headset. The ones I have are corroded and solidly in place. I've been soaking them in oil all winter, maybe I can get them loose.

Plan is to use my P200 engine once I get the rest together and looking nice. Gonna need to learn how to paint.

I had a blast at Big Wood. Glad I went. It inspired me not to put off doing fun stuff just because other parts of my life suck.

You guys have been great and encouraging and I appreciate that.

Cheers to TDC!! :D

i am tenatively hoping to be painting several items come fall in the shop. i want to do a paint booth at the front and needs to spray my SS180 at least with primer, and spray some Ape parts, we could probably tag team and do your GS at the same time.
Cheers,
Geoff

Ok. I'm back on the GS project. I took a year off to experience a bunch of bullshit life stuff, and now I want to play scooters in my garage again.

As I mentioned in another post, I'm wanting to dip the frame, cowl, and fender soon. Once I dip them, what should I spray them with while I pound out the dents?

Do you think that's a fair price for the cowl? I don't know the market like you do.

I asked for some close up pics and some pics of the inside of the cowl. I'm a little worried about the bottom two vents. Don't know if they'd be salvageable. Anybody got any vents laying around? :lol: We'll see what the guy comes up with.

a new cowl is $190, but you'll pay $100 shipping from Germany. after the images come, ask him if he'll take $175. He says it's NOS, but that doesn't matter because they need work.

BTW, I just noticed it's Motorsport Scooters selling it, which is good.

I think that bottom louver can be salvaged. it will take some delicate work though.
