P engine won't fit underneath the cowls, also doesn't fit with the mount, a better solution for souping up a handlebar bike would be putting a GS150 engine in there. Still takes some rigging but much less then with a P engine.
Keep in mind that your front fender is not going to fit over the GS160 fork, you will have to get the matching fender or be prepared to do some holes patching. My suggestion would be to put a GS150 fork with a GS150 front fender on it. The fender is very sleak looking and seamless in the front, so matches the style of the handlebars much better then the GS 160s fender that is already a bit more angular and has the trim indentation.
Just my 2c

: : ...and install a PK, GS, or Rally fork on the front end.

: I have a widemount 50,s vespa that i have been considering doing a p200 motor conversion. I also have an extra 160 gs fork would this fit without to much modification.
