Inspiration ; Always wanted a GP. Rescued bodywork from a friend who was going to paint it matt black after a tip off from Paul at Get Smart Scooters, who used to own it. Spent many hours carefully rubbing back the paintwork to get it all re-lacquered. The 250 engine has long since disappeared so I used a standard SX200 for a while but have now just completed a TS1 conversion. 

Build by; Owner during many, many evenings in my garage, with expert advice and assistance from Paul at Get Smart Scooters in Bristol. 
Hardest part of the project ; Waiting while the chromers pissed me about. 

Anything to add ; A few more small parts chromed, decent rear shock.
