Re: 15 mopeds...

So what was the best find out of them all ? Any with titles ? Total cost ?

Re: 15 mopeds...

a lot more interesting than your usual haul of mopeds. i dont even see a puch! got any pics of them NOT in a pile? im curious to see what all you got.

Re: 15 mopeds...

Best is relative but personally I got a gloria intramotor with a morini fracno on it!! :D Not a single title but Ontario has something called a self declaration to obtain ownerships for those mopeds made before 1983 if I recall correctly...all in the lot were 75 or older. As for the cost, thats confidential but all fifteen were about the same as buying a single older bike in Toronto. :D

Re: 15 mopeds...

No puchs at all, the guy used to have some but they were sold to someone else, not really into puchs anyway myself. As for what was there, there was a rizzato califo, 2 gloria intramotors, a KTM, a jawa 210, peugeot 103, mobylettes, and the rest were Cadys! So wicked awesome!!

Re: 15 mopeds...

too bad about the goatees...

Re: 15 mopeds...

Nice score on the Blanco intramotor, they are wicked fast !!!!

Icey cold run to the north! good haul Al. Sign is for rough road surface on a motorcycle ahead.

Re: 15 mopeds...

Re: 15 mopeds...

Blanco? Do you not mean Gloria? That is what is written on the bike itself...gloria intramotor. Not being a dick just asking.

Re: 15 mopeds...

The dark blue one near the back is my gloria.

Re: 15 mopeds...

Thanks for the info! Never saw that sign before...they need some of those near the street car tracks here in Toronto!

Re: 15 mopeds...

Re: 15 mopeds...
