Weight limit for mopeds?

What's the highest weight you've successfully ridden your moped with?

Re: Weight limit for mopeds?

77 malaguti commuter, ~330lbs. (two people)

Re: Weight limit for mopeds?

That's great! What's the engine size?

Re: Weight limit for mopeds?

250 lbs. It's just tougher at the low end. You use your're weight advantage to drive the pedals and coupled with the trottle, you get up to speed fairly fast. My four-stroke will not come off the line quickly, but will get me to about 45 on level ground. Two stroke seems to be kinder at the low end.

2 peeps (about 300lbs) on a Derbi variant with a modded estoril. Variated bikes are definately kinder to more weigh.

Re: Weight limit for mopeds?

Re: Weight limit for mopeds?

Shit. Im a 315lb powerlifter and I rode my Hero 175 miles in one day with a ten pound Kryptonite chain around my neck mr. T Style.

I cant for the life of me figure out why my clutch went out?

Re: Weight limit for mopeds?

If you're referring to the PA50II, it wasn't even in great shape (needs carb cleaned, etc) and it did 50km/h (30mph) no problem. I only slowed down because I didn't want to attract any attention riding an uninsured motor vehicle with no helmet on a public road.

Re: Weight limit for mopeds?

Hahaha SWEET!

This is the PA50 II I'm looking at...

Alas, poor Jared. Some branch ought to recruit him.

Re: Weight limit for mopeds?

me and my girl are 205 together.... and we rip on my 08 tomos sprint.

im 120 myself, and can easily get to 40 on the flats with a biturbo, sproket, and unipod +upjet. together we can still hit 40, but have a problem on big hills if we dont have momentum.

I had well over 400 pounds on my custom built bike, I am 210 and the other guy(sorry I forgot your name) was at least as big as me. The tire rubbed the frame most of the way.
