There are times when the head and logic dictates things and there are times when heart and emotions take over. I am in one such dilemma. I have never ridden a RD bobby before, but only have experience with Rajdoot 175 3 gear one. There is this fellow biker from my hometown who has a Bobby in bits and pieces. My heart says go for it, but the head says...Final cost kitna hoga...log kya kahengey( I am over six feet tall and a hefty one Hundred ten plus kilos so you can picture that )

The things missing are (not limited to, as i did not checkin person)

Here are my queries
1) Can we retrofit the old bobby head and block to the newer 4 gear bottom end...
2) what would be the cost of missing spares alone
3) Approx total restoration cost including painting and assembly - best of man and material.
4) Is there a way to get this registered after restoration - what would it cost
##Considering the above, what would be reasonable price to purchase the existing bits from him
