'85 General 5 Star F/S in Richmond, VA

First off - i love this ped.

'85 General 5 Star top tank w/ Minarelli V1 engine - I've never had any trouble running it. never failed to start, break down or anything. Since i bought it this summer i've done a lot to it. First, i revamped the electrical system, so all the bulbs work (blinkers, speedo, head light, tail light). also, i recently upgraded to a DelOrto 15.15 SHA carb, put a puch bullet performance exhaust on and also a brand new gas tank. looks amazing.

The only things that may need work are the front tire may need to be changed soon (rubber is starting to crack a little) and the rear brake acts up if you try to brake at a high speed...worst case scenario is new pads. Finally, the petcock that is on the new tank is brand new, but will not flow...it has a bowl on it and the fuel will not push through the fuel line after it fills the bowl. it needs a qt50 petcock, or modification of this one. and also you will need a high flow air filter the supply enough flow for the larger carb. i have a K&N that works fine with it...but it's way too big and gets in the way of your foot if you try to pedal.

so - The ped, K&n filter (if you want it), Alcatraz chain and lock, battery and charger all together i'm asking $600 solid. with the new carb and exhaust; it's a nice deal.

I have a photo of this ped on my profile, but it was taken before the mods. if you want to take a look at it, shoot me an email.

thanks.

This moped is IMMACULATE and worth every penny of the $600 he's asking.

Re: '85 General 5 Star F/S in Richmond, VA

this is a bit expensive I know ppl that are trying to buy a bike but 600 unkitted may be a problem. good luck dude.

Re: '85 General 5 Star F/S in Richmond, VA

I'm open to reasonable negotiation. but, kit or no, she's a gem.
