Teach me how to hunt mopeds!

Andrew Faulkner /

Alright.For the past two yearsive been stumbling upon some good ole mopeds. Ive been using craigslist, ebay, and the local newspaper/penny saver but my leads are coming to an end. Im pretty sure ive snatched all the peds from the people who use my sources.

SO heres what i want from you.

How do you track down mopeds. I read stories of people stumbling across maxis in old barns and such. But i think its frowned upon to go look in random peoples barns. I know there have gotta be tons of secrets im lacking on locating the powers hidden within.

try dashing you clothing with 2 stroke oil, it will attract rutting alpha-peds

Ahaha.Im trying to attract olderly people who think there puch is worth every penny of what they paid when it was new. So like $200 mint maxis.

Be veddy veddy quiet, we're hunting mopeds.

Most of the barn finds are found by just riding your ped everywhere you go. People will just come up to you and say I have one of those sitting in my barn, basement, garage, whatever. Word gets around and you become the "moped guy" and people will hunt you down. Also anytime you pick up a ped, tell the seller that if they know of any other peds that their buddies have that they are just letting collect dust that you would gladly buy them too. It might not happen right away but you can build up a reputation and before you know it, peds will just fall into your lap..... Supposedly.

my rep has gone backwards around here. PEople have flagged me down while riding and ive bougtht and sold a few that way. But on craigslist. People have emailed me and called me a scammer for trying to grab up all the peds. Even thogh i pay more then most peds are worth. just to make everyone happy. Cant win them all i guesse. I think im gonnamake some business cards with my name and number and crap on them to hand out whenever i buy/sell/get flagged down.

Re: Teach me how to hunt mopeds!

Get a job in a place where old people go, and keep a picture of a moped at your desk/area. Anytime someone says "I have one of those" offer to buy it.

Re: Teach me how to hunt mopeds!

Lol @ Chip

I gotta do that one..ha

Re: Teach me how to hunt mopeds!

I had some free business cards made up. I hand them out to scrapyards, recycling centers, people driving around picking scrap, anyone who shows any interest in what I'm riding, anyone I ask about what they are riding etc..

Re: Teach me how to hunt mopeds!

I have a bumper sticker on my car asking for unwanted mopeds..

Re: Teach me how to hunt mopeds!

Hmm your a couple years to late. imo

Re: Teach me how to hunt mopeds!

pull back on the bow and breathe out. hold your bow steady on target and count to three. then when you are one with the moped, release your arrow.

Re: Teach me how to hunt mopeds!

please stop dissing old people as if we are stupid. thank you. btw, i think my moped is worth more than i paid for it in 1981. i've seen much less sell for much more.

Re: Teach me how to hunt mopeds!

Hahaha^

Its hard not to when most of the peds we buy from old people have problems such as this:

Re: Teach me how to hunt mopeds!

when i pull up, i'll ask "got any more like this?" (point at ped)
