I bought a couple of Kreidler MP19s for a couple hundred bucks. The bikes might not be worth all that much but the wheels on them sell for a small fortune.

Cosmo Colt II I bought for 50 bucks that needed a chain. Cleaned carb set points and stuff and rode it 80 or 90 miles to Pomeroy and back.

Had an MO2 engine and ran great. Wish I'd never traded it.

Bought a Urban Express for 80$ and a new spark plug later it ran.

Bought a Tomos Revival for $140...running very poorly, i wanted the disc brake setup for my modified Sprint.

Re: Cheapest moped you have bought (not including cost of parts)

My first puch maxi was 40€. Had to change pretty much everything to get it running though.

A running, titled Derbi variant for 50€ was probably the best deal.

Shit! That is good. I what’s going to say free, but you got me beat. Out of all the mopeds I have I only have paid for one. My Dart. Every other one I have only paid for the rebuild process or parts. All my bikes have been either a basket cases someone gave up one or too far gone for the original owner to want to mess with.

Re: Cheapest moped you have bought (not including cost of parts)

forgot...my first moped, a friends dad said i could have a honda express if i wanted to get it running....road it home shortly after.

Re: Cheapest moped you have bought (not including cost of parts)

Too many free ones to list, including a Puch Magnum that the guy delivered to my house.

I got my beloved red 76' Bianchi Snark from a sweet old couple in New Jersey for $60. They had gotten it free from their sons scoutmaster and didnt know what to do with it.

I have roughly $200 total invested in it to this day, hasn't let me down and has been a reliable commuter for many months at a time.

Next is was a very sun baked 77' maxi i got for $140.

Re: Cheapest moped you have bought (not including cost of parts)

$150 for 3 basket case tomos's and extra parts. Looking back I think the dude was a junkie and needed a fix.

Why?

Ive bought alot of bikes for cheap. When i was a teenager i got a running Magnum II for $50 (had a 2 speed on it).

Probably the bike i remember most of all is the $80 "parts" tomos TTLX. Cleaned the carb and rode it for several years all over Cincinnati. Such a reliable bike. By the time i sold it i was rocking a 70cc airsal kit, tecno hunter exhaust, and 28t rear sprocket. That bike would climb any hill. I only got rid of it in trade towards a Derbi GPR50RR. I had more fun on the tomos.

Right now i have a $30 Trac with the Daelim motor. Great compression, ugly body. Cant wait to fix this turd.

My main ride is a Yamaha QT50 i bought last year at a yardsale for $60. Been slowly fixing it up as i ride it. Such a reliable peppy bike. Now has a 60cc chinese kit and a MLM better than stock pipe. I was riding it to work every day until the weather turned.

When i was a teenager my mother brought me home a Puch Maxi she found in the trash. Missing the front wheel. It was silver with a 1 speed motor. I got it running but dont remember at this point what happened to it.

Why?

I bet it had the typical moby rusted out tank. I just sold a pretty brown moby with a crap tank.

I've received free bikes, 20 dollar bikes(those normally are for parts). My most notable are a 26 dollar magnum, and a 150 dollar magnum that was clean af/titled/ and just needed points cleaned and a new carb.

Not just rusted tank! 327 Miles

Re: Cheapest moped you have bought (not including cost of parts)

Scored this for $80. Cleaned the carb and it ran great, probably the most reliable bike I’ve ever owned.

Re: Cheapest moped you have bought (not including cost of parts)

The lawn ornament idea makes a lot more sense after seeing that.
