How often did you dream of having a motorcycle while being in your teens? I bet it happened a lot. Personally, I was quite lucky because I had not just one but two – both were 50 cc mopeds. Although they were nice looking bikes I couldn’t even imagine having something as gorgeous as this Mobylette SP90 built by Spanish bike builder XTR Repo (without doubt, I would have given up both of them for one like this, haha).
The bike is named ‘PTT’ and based on Mobylette SP90 from 1975. XTP Repo managed to increase engine capacity up to 70cc giving the bike additional speed boost. Considering the weight loss and minimized air resistance, this mini Cafe Racer must be surprisingly nimble on the road.
The original frame was reworked, the tank and the seat were custom made especially for this project. XTP Repo got Mobylette Cady fork and alloy rims for the bike.The footrests were relocated onto the swingarm giving a little bit more beneficial sitting position.
The bike’s gone through so many changes that there’s not much left from the original donor. Even the exhaust was replaced to suit an improved look as well as better functionality.
Using fiberglass as a constructing material for some parts allowed SP90 to be lightweight but solid enough.
Finally, the color theme is very catchy: bright yellow and red contrasting with dark black set this build apart and made it unbelievably memorable.
