New to mopeds

Phil Johnson /

hello all!

I am going to be purchasing a 1981 Express SR for daily driving use. It needs a headlight and the carb tuned up (leaks fuel?). I'm not terribly familiar with 2-strokes and their repairs, but I'm sure I can learn

The moped is Angel Blue with white accents, basket, new seat cover. Needs a headlight, a few bulbs and that carb problem. The lady who owns it says its been in storage most of its life, so I'm sure the paint job is pretty good.

I'm excited to pick this guy up next week.

Is there any way to make it a little faster? Where can I get headlights for it?

Thanks!

What kind of fuel econ would this puppy get?

Re: New to mopeds

You should get between 80-100mpg.

Get it running correctly before you start thinking about making it go faster.

Anyone run an HID for it? lol
