    hi all! im new to the site
    i currently own a 09 R1 and a 11 YZ450F
    im now trying to relive my youth
    i always had gilera runners in my younger years and seeing the prices going up on them, i thought it would be a wise idea
    to own one so
    im attempting to build a gilera runner 180sp from frame up
    i have sourced
    a 180 rolling nut engine
    a full set of blue and silver zig zag panels
    and a sp frame which came with the full loom petrol tank oil tank etc.
    i already have a vx125 in my shed that i plan on stripping down for any parts i may need however
    ive already came across an issue
    the sp frame i have has quite bad rot on the center stand mount
    im sure it will fail an mot
    but i have a vx 125 frame here also
    i was wondering if i could use the vx frame
    which is an 2003 plate
    is it a case of just swapping the swing arm mounts over?
    i may post a thread on the progress
    any input would be much appreciated
    i dont plan on selling this bike on
    id be keeping it for myself
    just to own a much loved iconic scooter
