I finally found a cheapish ($350 USD) Moped that looked interesting as a project and still in good enough shape that I had something to work with. Seller ID'd as a 1977 103. I went and took a look and it's actually in very good shape & appears all original. Says she's been riding it since she was a kid and she's 53. It was registered in NY last in 2008 and I think Peugeots older than 77 are not on "the list". So...the plate on the front lists the model as a 103 VS and the ID # is 7 digits ending in 77. On the front of the head tube there is another sticker that says 103 VSL-47
This Moped has a rectangular plastic light, chrome front bumper, front and rear shocks, a vareo, no speedo, no horn or kill switch. It looks exactly like the photos of the earliest 71 103's I have found. Any help figuring out its details would be greatly appreciated..
The tank is miraculously rust free and I was able to get it to fire and run for 10 seconds or so by squirting some premix directly into the carb intake (fuel line disconnected). I will have to disassemble/clean the carb and flush the tank, but It appears to be a runner.
I'm sure I'll have more questions but first and foremost is figuring out exactly what this is.
Thanks in advance for any help.
