Less than $200 a bike, sounds like a good deal to me.

Sweet, thats a whole lifetime of frustration!

I'm sorry but I can not stand motobecanes. The only one I have ever seen that acted proper is owned by a doctor. They look cool, and when they work right they are awesome, but they don't work right. Its like they picked every tenth one off the assembly line and were like, "Ok, lets make this one right so everyone can know a guy who knows a guy that has an awesome one." Then proceeded to make the other nine_almost_ right, with just a couple little defects that are nigh impossible to suss out, and only solvable through the purchase of special tools and non existent parts that broke on every other bike just like the one on yours did.

I'm not gonna lie though, I like that leg shield on the orange girl there.

Mobys are easy to fix if you understand them. No rocket science there. Be brave and get one .

Jesus Nick...You already posses a kings load of those things. You'll need to build a pole barn if you buy any more.

Re: damn! 8 mobys + parts for $1500.. good deal

Not sure why people seem to have trouble with Moby bikes. All mine are awesome and fast and beautiful.

I love the feel and the girth, and mechanicalness (word?) of them.

Re: damn! 8 mobys + parts for $1500.. good deal

Yep Yep!

Re: damn! 8 mobys + parts for $1500.. good deal

Wow what a haul! My kingdom for a garage! I have those exact legshields...they are soo cool, can't wait to finish my moby, lacks time and $$ though.

Re: damn! 8 mobys + parts for $1500.. good deal

Good deal for sure. I would have scooped that up in a second.

Re: damn! 8 mobys + parts for $1500.. good deal

Whatever, I scooped up a couple complete decent shape mobies this year for like 80 each. I would not ever do it again. Give me anything but a motobecane.

"I have an idea! Lets make bolt heads and there corresponding nuts a mm or two different! Also, make sure the timing always gets off and is difficult to reset."

I think they look really cool, but shit that doesn't work the way its supposed to pisses me off. That is my attraction to mopeds and mechanical stuff in general. Spark, mixture, and compression, thats all other mopeds need. Not mobies though, when they decide they don't want to run, they aren't going to run. They can look like all systems go, and still not run. I don't know if I just got two terrible specimen that both happened to be complete and seperate pains and in my ass, but I can honestly say motobecane has provided me with more hassle frustration and wasted energy than any other moped company combined.

Sorry, rant over.

Re: damn! 8 mobys + parts for $1500.. good deal

with nothing currently running it just $1500 worth of parts, maybe someone just bought 8 seized engines/anchors. "2 were running" is different than "2 are running" all mopeds "were" running once and not every fix is a simple carb clean. hopefully they get 5 runners out this or its a bad money decision.
