bless me w/ your wisdom moped/scooter gods/goddesses

Help a newb out, guy says it won't turn over and from what it sounds like it might be soft seized and he want $200.00 for it(about1400.00 new ones) . Would it be worth it to get it and restore it?

Save the headaches and money for your two current bikes. Don't buy a broken one to add to the already two broken ones you have.

Re: bless me w/ your wisdom moped/scooter gods/goddesses

Could not find e50 cases until now and waiting on za50 parts. Was just looking for something to do while I wait on my maxi parts to get to my house!

It would not be worth it to get it and restore it.

Contact this person with a Puch to see how much it is.

Re: bless me w/ your wisdom moped/scooter gods/goddesses

It really depends on what engine it has, if it's a minarelli clone or something else variated with good parts support, you could probably throw a new top end on it and make a few bucks pretty quick. With runners going for well over half a grand seems worth to do a little research. Try the Vento forum on provoscooter: http://www.provoscooter.com/forum/forumdisplay.php?f=80 , they lumped them together with Vespa and Honda, which is a good sign..

But he needs more white trash yard art to one up the Queen of the trailer park. (edited)

Re: bless me w/ your wisdom moped/scooter gods/goddesses

WTF. I thought it was my OCD, ADHD! shinny! What! No yard art yet. 400 sf garage + 600 sf moped work shop with only two in it and a whole lot of room to dance around what few part I have laid out (literally). I really am impatient when I come to waiting on parts for my puchs! I am a logistics specialist so I understand the time in transit and cost of shipping, but that still does not help with SHINNY!

Re: bless me w/ your wisdom moped/scooter gods/goddesses

Overpriced Parts /

I found out keeping only one brand of moped (puch my favorite) is better because all parts interchange with other parts so you always have a riding bike or two .

Start a puch Hillbilly bank account

Re: bless me w/ your wisdom moped/scooter gods/goddesses

What Ken said....WORD! One or two types mopeds makes sure you're ridin' instead of parts-seeking all the time. don-ohio (:^)

Re: bless me w/ your wisdom moped/scooter gods/goddesses

Overpriced Parts /

Ya a few brands are ok too like some puch, tomos and derbi all share same bore and stroke, head/taillights crank tapers ect.

Funny those brands are in my garage now .

Re: bless me w/ your wisdom moped/scooter gods/goddesses

$200 and it sounds like it needs a little of everything.. dont buy it.

the ONLY reason to EVERY buy a scooter is so you dont have to work on it... kinda the opposite reason you buy a moped. I prefer mopeds because at least I can say I built it and I know every inch of it

Re: bless me w/ your wisdom moped/scooter gods/goddesses

I was really thinking about just buying, fixing and then selling it so I could get more parts for my puch. More or less I really just wanted to know what people thought about the scooter. Puch was, is and always will be my one and only ture love! "50CC FOR LIFE!" FOR THE LOVE OF PUCH(MY NEXT TATTOO). I would ride more but the one running puch I had was stolen. Now I am just looking for something to fill the void in my heart until I get my e50 is running :(
