PX 125 engines seem to go for around £300 sold from a bench unproven, and hence expect the worst and needing a rebuild, a proven good engine that can be viewed before removal is worth more obviously, depending on age and miles on the scooter.
I would like to think that dealer has a reputation to protect and therefore is supplying official LML built motors from the LML factory, did LML go bust? maybe old stock? The sip price must surely be a mistake, I have noticed a few sellers on ebay splitting t5 and p200 scooters as the engines make decent money, then they sell frame and rest of the parts separately as it earns them more money than a tatty scooter.
Seems the difference between the other engines mentioned and the SiP one, is the SiP one is a genuine new Piaggio MY engine!
Just checked with my mate about the engine I was asking asking the price of, seems it's a Genuine Piaggio MY engine, clean with low miles he bought for £350, approx 3 years ago. Was thinking of selling it, to put to my Cd player fund. Have also been thinking of selling my full frame 200 and 166 cut-down and other px177 Polini cut-down and a lifetime of spares, tools clothing, collectables etc, etc and getting out the scene.
Could be cause the black dog has been hanging( wrong word I know 😉) about for a few weeks, not sure.
My wife is getting a £500 gift for 25years service at her work, she says their is nothing she really wants, so is going to ask them to buy the Cd player I've been looking at on ebay? How's that for a great wife !!!
Ironsloth,are you not meant to talk me out of selling my scoots, bud. Lol😂😂😂
Citydaz, will let you know. Bad thing is can only find the cd player on eBay at the moment and my wife's work won't buy from there, luckily the seller is a Hifi shop, so wife has sent them an email to see if they'll sell directly from their bricks and mortar shop!
