The later Spanish 150 cases are the best to convert as they are the same outer diameter as the 200 cases with plenty of gasket face.

RE: 150-200 conversion
Yes, It would have been nice to find Spanish cases . These ones came up as part of a job lot . I`m selling all the bits I don`t want on ebay ( ending today!!) so that`ll offset what I spend on the cases.
Picked up the Indian 220 MB kit now so will go down that route with a 60/110 crank I`m thinking.
Anyone had anything similar ???

RE: 150-200 conversion
I followed my friend on his TS1 through the Pendoylan and Five Mile lane yesterday and realised that whilst my GP200 is good against any other standard Lambretta it was hard work keeping up with the modified bike. So I spoke to AF Rayspeed and ordered a Rapido 225 kit with a 48mm clubman exhaust and 26mm Jetex carb. I'm not after massive performance just a good spread of torque to reduce gear changing and a little more on the top end. The well proven Rapido kit seems a very cost effective way to go with the potential if desired of challenging a TS1 after a bit of fettling.
I'll let you know how I get on.
