1976 model 50V. You can tell '76 because of the badges on the tank and it is variated. You can find replacements parts all over the place for that bike. As far as performance parts, they are a little more difficult to come by, but still out there. It looks like it could use a little work, but that is part of the fun right.

Sweet, good to know. Thanks Mike.

Re: identify this MOBY

Could be a '77 too. My yellow one is a 1977 with the older style tank badges as well.

Re: identify this MOBY

that's a 6V moped. look for the Zener diode under the head light.

zenor is missing, but you can rewire that 6V system in such a way that the zenor is not required. I have run my 6V system with that setup for about 2.5 years with no blown bulbs or other electrical hyjynks.

Re: identify this MOBY

After looking a second time , it seems that the diode is not there , but the buzzer is, could be a 12V but it would have to be a 1978 at the earliest.I never seen a 78 with these tank badges, could be a mongrel. The fork may have been switched.

Look at the chain tensioner through the rear wheel. This is for sure a pre '77 model. The front end is royally fucked as you will note the tweaked forks, missing headlight/speedo, missing diode, and fork trim pieces. The electrics were probably stripped after an wreck or whatever.

Re: identify this MOBY

Eh, again it can still be a '77, even some '78's had that chain tensioner.

Re: identify this MOBY

Re: identify this MOBY

front forks are destroyed, its taken a good hit. Need speedo, lights fork tubes - whole 3 tree if ya do it easy.

look in that tank for rusty crusties,

No more than $100 with what you've got to put into it.
