1981 garelli buy or not?

i was wondering how much garelli's are liked in the moped community. all of my friends have puchs and tomos but no garellis. i have a chance to buy a 1981 garelli rally sport.

my question is this a good buy. are these a good moped and are parts easy to come by because i know my trac is a bitch and if that busts, well i am screwed

*345 dollars has a 70cc kit(but needs new rings and a head gasket) and comes with an extra motor.

I love garellis. THey have great style. They have lots of problems with clutch rubbers expanding. But if it has a 70cc kit on it, then you might assume that someone had it running well enough to kit it. so it proboly is mechanically good.

clutch rubber expanding?

of all the garellis I have worked on....never seen this problem before.

Easy to find, easy to replace - 10 minutes and somewhere around $30 here on MA.
