This is a list of the the bikes that should be giving you young bucks boners, instead of that Magnum that you have been jerking off to on Garage or PedShow.
First things first, if you are going to get stiff to some Puch upper tank goodness go for the UPS Magnum or the harder to find Magnum LTD. There is also the Puch Cobra, so there's that.
ups magum is nicknamed so obviously for it's striking resemblance to the big brown truck
these are pretty much just beefier magnums. they came in red and white. the white is my favorite as it came with a blue seat.
the magnum ltd is just that, it's limited. with only 500 models ever made its "RARE". each is numbered on the dash and they only came in this pearl white color with black chrome accents.
But the Magnum isn't the only bike that should be having you pitching a tent. There are so many other bikes that should be causing secretions! Here's a list!!
First off the Batavus Grand Prix. If you are fairly new to the scene, then you may not have even heard of this bike yet. If you have been around long enough to know that Batavus are not the "ped of choice", then I lost you at Batavus. Oh but it's so much more.
the grand prix carries the peugeot 103 lvs-u3 motor, and contrary to it's looks its not actually a top tank. the gas tank sits lower under the faux plastic tank more towards the middle of the bike. dubbed "mid tank" in a batavus brochure.
watch out for the models that came with the sachs motors. i know that willd and some others would argue that these motors are power houses but they are often passed up due to their weak plate clutches. none the less, a rad bike.
You more than likely have a hard on for anything that holds the gas between your knees. You probably know that the General 5-Star is a sexy mother fucker and they can go pretty fast. What you probably don't know is that the General that should be causing all the excitement down there is the General C-2.
i couldn't find a great picture of one, so sue me. what separates this bad boy from your run of the mill general top tank is that it's dual variated. it's home to minarelli's c2 motor. the dual variation makes this general a torque monster. with that said, good luck finding one.
Derbi should more than ring a bell. Some kids think that Derbi's are "ugly". Those kids are stupid and they suck. The Derbi is the ped you should be drooling over. They are all dual variated and the the flat read in particular has the potential to make you wet yourself and quit mopeds. What you should know is that Derbi made three of the coolest fucking top tanks known to man. The Laguna, the Diablo C-5 and the RD-50.
this is the bike that should be setting fires in your kilt. the tt was even featured in an episode of knite rider. if this ped isn't blowing your hair back, then you are stupid and superficial
this is the derbi laguna. if this bike doesn't slap your cock into your watch pocket... well then just quit mopeds. these only came in piston port, but never fear cause the puch gilardoni 74cc kits fit on here. if you don't know what that means, it pretty much equates to time travel.
this is the rd-50. with its huge wheels and dirt bike looks, it's sure to make you a little stiff in the trou. it sported the pyramid reed motor so so this bad boy will get up and go stock.
last but not least the diablo c-5. this is a monstrosity of a moped. It has pedals and a 21" front wheel. what the fuck were they thinking??
If arn't so new to the game then the fancy french bike's may have caught your eye by now. Motobecane and Peugeot made some pretty slick bikes with the 50v's and the 103's. These bikes aren't just sexy though, they have the potential to be rocket ships. More than likely you have came across Peugeot's top tank offerings. There is one model in particular that should have you tucking it in your waist band, and thats the TSM. But what you may not be aware of is Peugeot's not so popular top fueled brethren... The Peugeot TSE, and the über sexy (and my personal dream bike) TSM-R.
this is the tsm. you jerk off to this, and you should not be ashamed of it. easily one of the sexiest mopeds that there is. they aren't to hard to find but they aren't cheap either. but hey, you gotta pay the cost to be the boss.
this is the peugeot tse. i will go ahead and tell you that this bike is borderline unobtainable. besides that it is one of the sickest fucking mopeds to dawn a set of pedals. it bares simular resemblance to the diablo and the rd-50, but this bitch in heat is french. the tse is also dual variated, so you could dare go head to head with the spanish look-a-likes!
this ladies and gental fucks, is the peugeot tsm-r. "but... it's just a black tsm", you say? nope, there is a wolf in this sexy french bitch's clothing. besides dawning the exclusive black paint job, this tsm happens to be dual variated! i will admit that it isn't the best execution of dual variation. the small rear variator causes the need for a jack shafted reducion gearing, this eats up some rotational mass and comes at the minute expense of top speed. but you should shut the fuck up and get over that because this black beauty is practically unobtainable (unless you are deadped greg) and to me its the end all be all balance of sexy and power. mostly sexy. but thats just my opinion, i'm biased to peugeot.
There are lots of other dream bikes, top tanked and not. Like the...
Motobecane L99e (dual variated)
they only made 24 of them, and they were not for sale. so don't hold your breath
the baby brother to the grand prix. this had all the same features in a step through format.
Garelli Monza GT
these are sexy, but not so fast and they have little to no aftermarket.
don'd mistake this for the fs1. this is the detuned little brother with petals. sadly it was restricted to 25mph, it did however have a four speed gear box. chomp on that
Jawa Super Sport
unless you are moped jay, you think jawas suck. don't let this shitcycle in full fairings fool you. it's no different. swap on a gila'd e50 and get bury munro on some bitches
these came with the morini m1 motors. not to be confused with chad burkes negrini. he has a kitted m101 (dual variated) because he is special
the mini tsm, if you will
Italjet Pack 2
the bars and seat would fold down on this bike with a carrying handle to boot. it also sports a vespa engine and drivetrain. throw a k... nm.
There are bikes that I have missed, but who cares. What's your dream moped?
