Columbia Mopeds?

Matthew Kile /

Hey all-

Just got back from racing at Sears Point vintage motorcycle days. At the swap meet, I picked up 2 Columbia Open Road 'peds for $10. They're real rough, but I'm sure I can combine them into one good one. Anyone know anything about these? Where are they made? Who makes the motors? They've got infinantly variable transmissions and really cool two piece cast aluminum exhaust units. Neat!

Re: Columbia Mopeds?

I HAVE A COLUMBIA MOPED WITH A SACHS MOTOR CYCLE IWOULD ALSO LIKE TO FIND OUT SOME INFO ON IT. I GOT THE MOPED RUNNING THIS WEEKEND.

Re: Columbia Mopeds?

you have to post a picture of one of these brutes. I want to see how the Sachs is hooked to a variable transmission.

If it has a sachs motor, that is.

I've found that most sachs motors have the name written pretty big on both sides, making an ID pretty easy.
