I've had lammy's in all forms and states, but never an Indian one.
I now have bought a Sil gp in parts.

The previous owner has papers for a 125cc GP SIL, but in the past a lot of scooters where "made" 125 because of rules about more than 125cc in Belgium, where i live. So i know it's not always correct.
It also says 1966 on the paper, so that is wrong for sure.
And looking at the paintjob it looks like an older indian "restoration" ;)

The thing that has me confused is the first nummers of the chassis/frame
It's not very clearly stamped but is looks like 22/4 and not 0 (125),1(150) or 2(200), like it should be
The second part is 22, so that should be Lucknow (India)
And the third part is the 6 numers and start with 335

Dus somebody know if later on the frame numbers changed?
And can i find out what year approx the frame is?

The engine that came with it is an unstamped 200 engine. So that one has to be checked for faulty/bad parts off course. I will be rebuildingand tuning it from scratch.

Any info is welcome (inspiration for engine also)

There were a few 22/4 bikes that showed up in the US (via Canada all 200cc). All of them were very late (1996) and had the different forks with turning fender. I had one for a little bit and I know of a couple more.

Thanks for the info.
I don 't have the turning fender, but this could have been modified in the past.
The frame has some rust so i will need to adress that. The color scheme looks like Indian "resto" but could be repaint in original style.

The fork looks different too. Maybe an mk1 Vijay Super? Have seen those with normal fender.
