Complete moped novice would love your advice/thoughts on the one I'm thinking about starting with - the Moped Wiki has been super helpful but I still need some guidance on price. A friend is parting with her moped because she has to move. It's a 1979 Peugeot 103 w/ Ninja exhaust, tires are a few months old and I'm waiting to hear whether it's a two or five coil. She's asking $1,200 OBO for it and I've attached a picture. I know that's more than the $600 recommended for newbies but it's in great shape and I can't find many others online to compare price. She has the title and original manual and I like the idea of buying from a friend.
Does the price seem fair?
What other questions should I be asking her?
Anyone have San Francisco specific advice they want to share whether I start with this moped or a different one?
Thanks so much!
