Looking for an easy cheap first moped

Hey yall, I'm looking for a cheap just entry level moped so I can get around the base that I'm stationed at. I've had a few motorbikes as a kid but I absolutely love the 80's mopeds that are a little rough around the edges. Any advice, thoughts, recommendations or anyone selling?

Thank you

Re: Looking for an easy cheap first moped

I'd recommend any Puch with an e50 engine. Preferably a Maxi. Cheap and plentiful, and parts are abundant.

There are probably alot of them that people want to unload before they travel on. Just don't get a Chinese scooter, your shipmates will be all over that.

Re: Looking for an easy cheap first moped

Definitely a puch. They are probably the most common and super easy to fix.

Maxi gets my vote, love all mine that I've owned/own.

E50 on top of that, the za doesnt seem to be as reliable or as easy to find parts for.

Cant find a single moped on this base sadly haha

Express/Qt-50....nopeds, but for no traffic ideal.

Puch with E50 engine, the best decision

Re: Looking for an easy cheap first moped

Love my JCPenney Pinto.....all the ease of a Puch E50 with a tank that can easily be removed to clean/derust which is a common issue on these older bikes....

Re: Looking for an easy cheap first moped

Tomos are cheap and plentiful. Easy to fix too. Puch with E50 is also a good choice as everyone else has said already.

Check Facebook marketplace. Lookup Facebook moped groups. Craigslist doesn’t usually have a lot anymore. You could also try asking around. Maybe some old coot has a mountain of mopeds in a barn somewhere nearby? (edited)

Re: Looking for an easy cheap first moped

Puch with E50. You can get them low cost depending on condition and parts are cheapish and best of all really easy to work on.
