Just scored a 1977 Rovet Safari for $30!!!!

Matthew Hardgrove /

Was putting my helmet on yesterday and a Guy asks if the Urban Express outfront was mine. He asks if I wanted to look at his unknown to him moped. Today when I roll up, I spot this 1977 Rovet Safari. Guy says he paid 20 for it and wanted that. Gave him $30, he was a real hoot of a person too! Last registered in Colorado in 1984!

I know next to nothing, except that it has a Minnerrli and it has 3 levers, so I assume it’s able to shift?

Anyone have one?

3rd lever is starter clutch. It has a minarelli V1 motor. Tons of parts availability. $30 is a damn good price.

Rovet or Romet?

Great buy! I paid $100 for my 76 and yours is in far better shape. These are fun little machines.

How does the frame tank look inside? Great buy for the v1 alone, clean the points and fire it up!
