does this make sense ?

So I'm traveling to Mumbai India in late May and packing light so should have tons of room to buy moped parts .. does it make sense to try and buy parts out there and bring them back ? If so any suggestions where to buy them out there thanks ...

Re: does this make sense ?

Is there a moped scene there?

Re: does this make sense ?

well on ebay I see a lot of honda c70 parts and says ships from india ... so I Imagine there should be mopeds.. Im guessing a bunch of people have them as daily drivers

Re: does this make sense ?

I was just out there a few weeks ago. TVS peds everywhere but did not see a single Hero moped. Just the Honda Hero motorcycles. Didn't even see any Kinetics.

Shipping parts makes the most sense though, I shipped a few things back and it as super easy an cheap.

Now to figure out how to reg a auto-rickshaw in CA....

They import all those crap bikes here.

I've been to Goa a number of times. There is a lot of cloned Vespa and Peugeot rev & go types. You can hire them for as little as £2 (GBP) a day - including fuel. Fantastic experience competing with elephants on the tight blind bends.

As for mopeds I did see a lot of Jawas. Can I suggest that you Youtube 'road scene Mumbai' (insert the actual place you are visiting) and you will get a good flavour of what peds you are likely to encounter.

Ride safe and enjoy!
