Lightest moped?

As far as weight goes, what are some lighter models?

Re: Lightest moped?

the motobecane 7 is really damn light. as is the solex, and the Amf roadmaster, the one with a mcullough engine.

Re: Lightest moped?

Hi! Just remember that lightness can mean weakness of frame and stress points which you'll certainly become familiar with if you have a spill.Ask Reeperette.I bet he doesn't have anything without some armor plating and reinforcing! So maybe you don't want a `mamby-pamby' little bike,Dylan. Who knows,you might have to run over a moped thief some day.BYE!

Re: Lightest moped?

The Velosolex 5000 is probably one of the lightest.

Re: Lightest moped?

peugeot 103=105lbs. solo odyssey=110lbs. qt50=100lbs. This is all with varying amounts of fuel though. My friends and I had this same discussion today so we weighed them.

of all the mopeds i've had my hands on, the Moby 7 is the lightest. somewhere around 80lbs

Re: Lightest moped?

that raw pinto is going to look so sweet when finished!

Re: Lightest moped?

Solex, 68 lbs.

Re: Lightest moped?

nope nope nope...pretty positive the Moby X is lightest

Re: Lightest moped?

Just weighed the Doniselli 54 lbs

I think we found the lightest..but it is also one of the smallest. It is sturdy as hell, but tiny 9" wheels means sketchy handling

Re: Lightest moped?

A lot of moped frames weigh just 13lbs. Wheels and engines are the culprits. Aluminum cylinders help big. The more you keep the weight at the same level as the axles the more quick the handling. Maxis are more flingable than magnums
