Chicago - no bike

Hi all,

Have moved to Chicago. Should meet Simon (hi simon) soon. Had to leave my moped ( Hobbit 1980 model) in the X's basement as shipping was too expensive. so now I've got the key but he has the bike. He's also lost his job and drinking heavily so I don't think I can go back and get the bike OR ask him to send it.

Now what do I do? Buy a new one? In chicago all I see are scooters. and I don't know if I want to buy a vintage bike and scour for parts like the first time. Sigh.

So should I go buy a Hero or a Puch or something?

Youll like chicago

Re: Chicago - no bike

you could always send someone over to get your ped and maybe even straighten your x out.

Re: Chicago - no bike

i'm about to try this ... i'm flying to california for a few days to visit my girlfriend. instead of shiping her moped to her, i'm checking it as luggage in a big box. i'm pretty sure i'm allowed two 70 pound suitcases. so i don't see why i can't put the engine in a box and the rest of the bike in another. i hope it works!

check ebay. there were quite a few nice complete running mopeds (including a honda hobit) in the chicago area a short while ago. good luck getting a new moped. don't dispair. be bold and mighty forces will come to your aid.

Re: Chicago - no bike

thanks for the cheery messages, all

I will check out Ebay. I am tempted to buy something new because I don't have a basement to fool around in like with the older bike. I'm on the 6th floor. They said I can take a moped up inthe elevator ! with me and keep it in my hall closet but to buy an old one and work on it in the living room? :))

GK - I have ONE friend in Pittsburgh and I don't think I can send him over - hate to say this about a good friend - but he's shit scared of the xmaniac who has created a scene in his house at New Years. Oh and squeezed his roommate's mother's ass during Christmas. Don't ask me how I married this guy LOL it was caveat emptor , I found him on Ebay LOL

what I really want? A TVS 50 XL in black

Re: Chicago - no bike

Thoese are nice. but hondas are better

Re: Chicago - no bike

Yeah but I had a TVS from 86 to 92 and can manage it with no clutch, no brake if need be :) sometimes no gas LOL
