What do you guys think about this Tomos??

What do you guys think? 450 buck is what he wants. looks like maybe a good start. Performance wise, is this a good base?

Re: What do you guys think about this Tomos??

i hope it comes with the headlight. and the matching wheel. i dont know, i have seen a lot of deals down your way that are a lot better than that. i might hold out and wait for something better.

Re: What do you guys think about this Tomos??

its an a3 motor too, theres more mods for the newer motors a35 and a55 other then the top end the 55 and 35 are the same.

Re: What do you guys think about this Tomos??

thats actually pretty sweet looking. but maybe 450 with a light and a matching rear wheel.

Re: What do you guys think about this Tomos??

5 star wheel id buy that alone haha.

2 different wheels is a pretty cool thing its like 2 girls at once expect with wheels.

If its in good running condition and good cosmetic you can probably work him down from 450 and if its bad running condition you most certainly can work him down.

Re: What do you guys think about this Tomos??

Snowman. what you said about the wheels... priceless.

He said he'd throw in the matching wheel with a brand new tire on it.

dont slam... Cause I'm clueless motor wise. Will the newer a35/55's bolt up? If so i could start building one on the bench while I make due with that one.

yeah the headlight is what made me second guess too... I was like, "WTF, who is this dude to not need a headlight? The fucking Predator or something?"

Verbatim

Re: What do you guys think about this Tomos??

The trick is.. to use a candle for a headlight.

or just got buy a nice battery operated 2 million candle powered one from walmart and strap that on there, or 2 million candles alone will do the trick.

or just a buy a moped headlight if your not fun.

Its a "bitsa"! Little bit of this one and a little bit of the that one!

Re: What do you guys think about this Tomos??

450 seems high for that one.

A3 means it's at least almost 20 years old, which ain't bad for a Puch or something, but the real upside to Tomos is that you can get new ones. If you add $549 you can get a new one, with a warranty

Re: What do you guys think about this Tomos??

If you add 549.... wtf?

thats like saying o well you can buy an accord or add 75 grand and buy a lambo.

Re: What do you guys think about this Tomos??

I'd buy it

Re: What do you guys think about this Tomos??

An A35 will bolt up, not sure about the A55 though

Re: What do you guys think about this Tomos??

i would pass on that one because its an a3 now if that was a35 yes. $450 no $200 yes/maybe

Re: What do you guys think about this Tomos??

Yeah, I wouldn't buy an A3 if you want performance, and one in that condition is worth about $150, if it runs, IMO. You should be able to find a later model A35 for $450, then get an Airsal kit, 15.15 carb, and a Biturbo, and your all set. You'll be able to cruise with city traffic no problem. Peace. Jerry.

Re: What do you guys think about this Tomos??

really? well willl an a35 bolt up to this one? Theres really nothing close to me.

I need a daily that I can tune, and still be reliable. But fast and goodlooking are a must, lol.

Re: What do you guys think about this Tomos??

Yes, a a35 will bolt right on to that frame. The wire setup is slightly different, but there are very few issues with making it all work together. I have an older tomos frame with an a35 motor bolted on it. The A3 is a reliable motor, there are just fewer mods for it. Depending on where you live, you can tune a stock motor to get you going plenty fast enough for traffic. Try to talk him down to 350 or 400 and get that other wheel. Headlights are easy to find and install. Good luck.
