What kind of Moped? + California Tip

I just moved to LA from NYC and I'd like to get a moped. The only thing is that there are so few out there on the market that I can't figure out what is an appropriate price. I think that I'd like a circa 1980 Puch or something similar, but I'm not sure--does anybody recommend a particular make/model? What should I look for? Low mileage?

Also, I imagine that any moped I get will have been garaged for quite a while so I bet that it will need a tune up. Anyone know any moped mechanics in LA? I'd like to have a pro give it the once over before I start trying to work on it myself.

Thanks!

PS - Maybe I'm stating the obvious to you afficianados, but I was happily surprised when I went to the DMV here and found that if you get form #REV230 (registration form for "Motorized Bicycle"), fill it out and send it in with a check for $6, you will get your registration and a plate back in the mail.
