While P200s tend to be great bases for custom jobs, it isn’t too often you see them receiving detail oriented, factory-spec restorations. To buck that trend, we have the bike on this page and also this one here.
The example you see below started out as a typical US-market P that had been rode hard and put away rough, with typical ‘80s California Scooterboy bodging a-plenty. In collaboration with the owner we elected to give this poor machine a new lease on life, restoring her to full Euro-spec factory mk1 P-Series glory, apart from the color which, while similar to a stock color offered on early Euro P200s, is actually a Fiat color chosen to match on of the pieces in the owners car collection.
