How much would the new engine run me?

Re: Worth $75?

I would snap this up as well. Now that Leo's in the ring with a basket of parts you cant go wrong, Bottom end may be fine. Could be that someone ran straight gas an killed the piston. Even a used piston and matching cylnder would make that run forever.

Do it.

Re: Worth $75?

lol its set up like an exercise bike. I paid more for my moped and it was in worst shape. Most people look forward to upgrading the cylinder and pistin anyway.

Re: Worth $75?

It’s up to you. If you enjoy tearing into things to see how they work, then it might be worth it for you.

It’s just that I can’t remember one single enjoyable moment in trying to get an Angel running, although that was decades ago and learning 2 stroke engines at the time.

Re: Worth $75?

Oh sweet!

Picture buying a shitty Chinese scooter today for 500 bucks from a shady classified ad. Now picture that same bike 40 years from now, being beat up and abandoned that whole time. Is it worth 75 bucks? Hell yeah! It's a piece of history, and history has presented you the opportunity to invest a whole lot of your time and money to restoring something, which even though it was never anything special, could become something very special to you. Or at least a long running and memorable regret!

Re: Worth $75?

I'd stick with the TYM, no point in buying two shitty mopeds.

Re: Worth $75?

yr nuts, wouldnt even consider it.

Re: Worth $75?

If you have the room for it offer 50. Then tinker with it when you feel like it.

Re: Worth $75?

I would refuse the Indian for sure. The best parts, the wheels are gone.

If the guy hangs to the silly position of both or none just pass on all.

Re: Worth $75?

Thanks for the tips guys I will offer 50 and pass on the indian.
