Project number . . .

Posted by ifitsgotanengine on November 17, 2005

I’ve lost count.

Anyway, a friend has a late 60s or early 70s Montesa King Scorpion dirtbike that he inherited from his father. He thinks it was last ridden around 30 years ago, so it should fire right up, right?

My plan is to get it running, put blinkers and a horn on it (it already has head and tail lights), put some 17″ sportbike rims and tires on it, and register it for the street. Voila: a 250cc 2-stroke Supermotard.

    I’ve read your comment about the Montesa King Scorpion you’re planning to transform.
    Maybe you don’t know it’s a cult bike in her country of origin: Spain.
    I’m working on one of those units, that is nearly restored. You can take a look at montesakingscorpion.blogspot.com
    Please, let her “as is”. Is one of the best spanish bikes you can find.
