Re: Where to find AFFORDABLE mopeds

Pushrod Fifty /

Now that co charges for motorcycle ads, people are advertising under motorcycle parts. Ive seen some good deals there.

Place an ad in the wanted-to-buy section of your hometown newspaper... if your town still has such a thing.

The elderly couple down the street from you aren't that big on social media, may not know craigs list from angies list, but they STILL get the local paper and their 47 year old son's (he's an assistant manager at a kroger in spokane) Puch has been underfoot and in the way in the goddamn garage now for thirty fucking years. Will you please just take it away?

Put the ad in LARGE PRINT for them.

Re: Where to find AFFORDABLE mopeds

You can still find a $300 bike but it will need another $300 in parts/resto.

Re: Where to find AFFORDABLE mopeds

Jimmy Cincinnati /

If you harp craigslist/facebook/offer up/ let go/ and etc you'll find one eventually for $300 or less. There was a decent looking tomos bullet recently for $250 that would require much work to get going.

Forgive me if im wrong but you dont seem very well versed in moped repairs... reliability seems to your #1 priority. I would strongly urge you consider scooters than mopeds. Granted they might cost you more but they are less apt to leave you stranded.

Re: Where to find AFFORDABLE mopeds

Where are you at? I regularly pick up cheaper bikes but usually they're very wrecked. Often trading for multiples or whatever you can amass quite a lotta bikes and I would usually sell most of my bikes for as little as 300.

I get that I might have trouble, but the moped I had lost spark after 300 miles. To ship parts overseas it would’ve been $300 for everything I needed and there wasn’t anything else that was compatible that I could find. Plus what’s to say the ignition wouldn’t go out again after another 300 miles? I am decent at small engine repair, it’s not that I couldn’t fix it it’s just it was too expensive. More common mopeds (such as Honda Hobbit for example) are cheaper to work on. Plus I can’t be waiting 3 months for parts to arrive.

I had a diblasi r7e but I sold it

Re: Where to find AFFORDABLE mopeds

where in Michigan are you? I just passed on a $125 PUCH maxi a couple weeks ago in the Flint/Montrose area. it needed some love but was pretty complete. I just have way too many bikes currently and don't have room for another common Maxi. the Maxi was listed on Facebook Marketplace.

My wife just won a Puch Cobra Trike at CBBG 10 and it took up the last of my room for mopeds.

where are you located? "Northern Michigan" as in the U.P.? Tiwas? Bay City?

From Myrons,

Magneto

US version had a CEV 6932 points magneto (CEV#04212), with external ignition ground, external spark coil. The blue wire must be grounded to have spark. This was to meet the legal requirement that the headlight must not get dim when the brake light goes on. Source coils are 04308 lights and 04307 ignition.

EU version had CEV 6931 (CEV #04394), with internal ignition ground, external spark coil. Source coils are 04233 lights and 04277 ignition in the parts list, but at least some have an 04235 ignition spark coil and no external spark coil. All the other parts (points, condenser, flywheel, etc) are the same as the USA version.

Di Blasi magneto part numbers are CEV-Pagani numbers with the prefix PG (for Pagani-CEV). Parts are in Parts/Ignition, Magneto/CEV magneto.

I assume that was mostly for labor, because those parts are cheap.

The only way to own a moped, is to work on it yourself. Get manuals, read, read, and read up on the bike. You're gonna need some tools, and knowledge, and a willingness to get dirty.

I would just turn and run, before mopeds ruin your life too, grasshopper.(edited)

Wish you’d been around to tell me the part number last summer lol. I didn’t have points though I do kinda regret selling it but it’s too late now. It didn’t completely lose spark though but it was definitely an ignition problem. I looked on the Diblasi website and it was $300 for a cdi and magneto shipped. It had blue spark but it was faint. I don’t know why everyone assumes I don’t know what I’m doing with engines, in fact I’ve got the engine pulled out of my firebird right now and I’m doing an overhaul. Once again I just didn’t want to put money into something that broke down after $300 miles.(edited)
