Looks like olive green. Pity the panels are mismatched.

Nice Scooters.
You planning on full restoration or rustoration.
Be nice to see how they turn out :)

don't really get the rusto thing, the olive one was possible candidate but too many spurious hole from accessories., esp on headset top and rear light unit. full body restorations for all, leave the TV 175 engines as is (new seals clutch bearings etc) and probably RT195 for the Li.

I never used to like rustorations.
But have changed my opinion.
I think some are very good and look nice.
But it horses for courses.
Thankfully everyone has different ideas and opinions. :)
Its nice to see well done restored scooters.
I have been reading up on the rt kit as i have a series 3 spanish. Which i an debating either gettig the engine reworked or selling.
I think but am not sure my crank is 58 x 107
I seem to have read they work best with 58 x 110 or 60 x 110.
Whats the inspection for? For registration?

Will be nice to see how they turn out :)

yeah registration inspections next Tuesday 29th. I've used the 58 107 crank on 2 RT builds (mainly because it's the easiest set up straight out if the box) pretty happy with them.

Ah right to the crank.
Maybe i shall seriously consider it for mine if it means i dont have to alter the crank. :)
Good luck with the inspection.
I am just in the process of filling in paperwork for my registration document.
