we are in the business of loving mopeds...not selling them.

i'm not selling one i'm looking at buying one

Re: swinger 1 moped value

Depends, if frozen in carbinite in a barn by Sean Connery it'll get more and less for one that has someone working on who may or may not know what they're doing. Locale also is a variable too.

Just don't buy one with the words: vintage, rare, or australian in the ad... (edited)

its off from an 80 year old man that bought it new and everything is still on it he is putting a new head and piston on it and it will be bad to perfect condition i looked at it today and if i fix it he'll sell it to me for

$500 if he fixes it he wants $1000 i assume he knows what he's doing because he has a restored pinto and a honda extreme i think it was called that he restored both of. and he's in ohio if that helps and it wasn't from an add i met him at work when he came in to buy oil for the extreme. thanks again

Re: swinger 1 moped value

is all he doing replacing the piston and head???????111 because anyone can do that

ya thats it, everthing else is in perfect condition. so if i replace the piston and head is it worth the $500 or should i wait and buy it at $1000 or is $500 and $1000 way to much for it?

Re: swinger 1 moped value

You're an imbecile if you pay an extra $500 to replace a piston and head, it takes 20 minutes and $70 worth of parts (if that).

Ok i just never replaced a piston before but i want to thank you for you over-whelming assistance and ability to show compassion for a person with questions.

Re: swinger 1 moped value

I appreciate your effort to make me feel bad but a bit of Google-fu let alone a few searches or some wiki readin here would have answered most of your questions.

Re: swinger 1 moped value

I imagine a stock swinger 1 in decent running and rideable condition the bike would be worth around $350-$500. Assuming the bike is in OK shape, is complete and only needs motor work I would probably offer something in the range of $250. Ohio is one of the cheapest states to buy a moped in btw. (edited)

Re: swinger 1 moped value

If it's not running, pay $200 or less, never know what else needs replacing especially when you don't know pricing or how to replace a piston/cylinder. Though e50s are a great engine to learn on for wrenching purposes it may be something that might take more time and money.

Re: swinger 1 moped value

$500 to replace a piston!

Re: swinger 1 moped value

You should get the Honda Extreme!

A swinger 1 usually is a thin rim 20mph model

Mint running in Youngstown area market is 350.00 tops

A clean silver magnum in that area goes for 500.00

Do not pay 500.00 let alone 1000.00

I will have a fast kitted double the speed of that entry level puch

Ready in a 3-4weeks for around 500.00

It will be a maxi not a swinger though

Re: swinger 1 moped value

Buy from Ken. You will be happy with a well built kitted puch. A non-runner in OH should be around $100-$200. Yeas I lived in OH for 2&½ months constantly searching for deals. That old man is crazy wanting $1000 for a bike.

i'll second if it doesn't run no more than 200$

Re: swinger 1 moped value

The only puch moped that's worth more then 200.00 not running is a magnum MKll LTD then only 201.00

i'll try and talk him down and see if i can get it cheaper and let you all know

Re: swinger 1 moped value

Lewis Holston /

its been almost a month and after talking to the guy for a bit and showing him what you all said i got him to sell it to me for $100 but i'm going to buy a treat package for my pinto i have and move the stock stuff from it to the swinger any sugestions for a good cheaper treat package.

Do not get the party that comes with a phbg carb and boss pipe cause you will be tuning it forever and clogging up the repair forum .

Get a dmp 70 cc, techno circuit pipe, mesh filter and post for a 14mm bing on buy sell
