Highest Mileage Moped

Chris Harrington /

A friend just bought a Puch Maxi with 13,000 (yes, thousand) miles on the odometer. That got me wondering what the highest mileage moped out there is. So, let's find out...

Re: Highest Mileage Moped

sold a Jawa X35 with over 9,000 miles in great running condition. That is like 100k miles compared to most mopeds

While on vacation this summer, my brother spotted a Yamaha LB50 in Greece with 78,000 km on it!!! (about 48,500 miles).

Imagine doing that much mileage... My Streetmate is at about 11,500 miles currently...

Highest Mileage Moped

Re: Highest Mileage Moped

15.597 on a Maxi.

over 10,000 on a Derbi SLE. Who knows how many miles it really has on it. Speedo broken when I got it. Also the fiber bushing on the points was totally worn out to the point where it would only idle.

Re: Highest Mileage Moped

when i got my MB5 the speedometer/odometer didnt work anymore but i recall them reading around 95,000 miles, which i can pretty much guarantee wasnt correct but who knows

when i took my first bike (82 express) apart once and for all it had 10,550 miles on it. when i bought it i think it had around 6500 on it. i rode that thing everywhere. miss that bike. still have the frame but it will never be the same again. :'(

Re: Highest Mileage Moped

23,000 mi on a 07 A55 cruising at 40 to 45 mph. Had to change out rings at 17,000 mi as it started to loose power. Ring gap was about 1/4 inch. The nickasil lining was still nice with some cross hatch. Strong motor for 50 cc.

Re: Highest Mileage Moped

Bought a Batavus Regency from an old farmer. Had to pull it out of a collapsed barn. It had 92,000 miles. It wasn't until I got it running again that I figured out that the odometer was spinning backwards

Re: Highest Mileage Moped

Most I ever had was 8,400 on a 50v. Seems like very few compared to many here.

Anyone with over 42,000??

Re: Highest Mileage Moped

That is amazing, but I could see it if properly maintained, stored inside, original owner and never thrashed, especially if it is a Honda. A unmolested Motobecane could prob see at least 20k, as long as the owner had access to grease gun for the varriator, and maybe some nos points. These machines were really well built for the most part, and in most other countries they are serrious transportation.

Re: Highest Mileage Moped

ive put like 1500 miles on my tomos this summer. kitted, pipe, and air filter and front sprocket. cruises in the mid 40's no problem and can push to high 40's low 50's if the weathers right but i dont like how it sounds revving that high anymore...

Re: Highest Mileage Moped

16,000 on a sachs powered sparta

Re: Highest Mileage Moped

Give me a speedo and a few days, I'll have it reading whatever number you choose.
