So I haven’t been doing much in the moped world since my dad died this past spring. Just haven’t been feeling it. But I picked this beaut up a couple months back, and it’s time to tear into it. I don’t know what I’m up against; Sachs is totally new territory. I’ll start with the basic carb clean, spark plug and clean & gap the points. What else do I need to know? Tips, tricks & advice welcome!
I picked this one up for a song. $50 if I recall. Missing headlight, but housing is there. Looks like it takes a sealed beam. Also missing left side plastic, otherwise it’s complete. Supposedly runs, but hasn’t in a while. My plans are to replace tires, tubes and cables. Grease wheel bearings and head tube bearings. Service ignition and brakes. Go over wiring and repair/replace any damaged components. I’ll also polish up the paint and chrome. Once running well and looking good in stock configuration I’ll weigh my options, but I’m probably gonna flip this one. I’ve got some other moped irons in the fire needing money and attention.
