I was a Jawa dealer in the late 70's and found the Babetta moped to be rugged, reasonably quick, and reliable with the exception of the ignition system. The "Tranzimo" unit- an epoxy sealed iron curtain time bomb that was either bad or waiting to go bad, usually far from home, in a bad neighborhood, at night.
Spare parts were dirt cheap and I was within driving distance to American Jawa,Ltd in Plainview, Long Island. I usually would drop off a parts request form to the parts guy, go out into the warehouse to load up some peds, then collect my parts that were waiting for me at the counter. The new mopeds were packed two to a sturdy oak crate, in assorted colors, stacked to the ceiling. Those were the days!
