LOOKING FOR DECENT PED IN LA AREA

Alfred JARRY /

Greetings. I am looking for a decent moped somewhere within 150 miles or so of the greater Los Angeles area. I dont want to buy a new TOMOS and I definitely dont want a KINETIC. It would be nice to get someting I could eventually put a 70cc kit or at least get some kind of speed mods to keep up with LA traffic... Please advise.

I went down there, he has a new A35 TOMOS left over from 2005 because it is painted Barbie Purple. Also he has a late '70's PUCH Maxi that he wants like $1300 for, plus a VESPA Ciao & some other stuff, I dont remember... He says to wait for November when the new A55's will be out. Im still trying to decide if its better to go with an A35 or A55, since there seem to be more speed mods out there for A35... Thanks, though.

If you just bought that for $20 and it runs at all, you got a hell of a deal. How fast does it go?

Actually, the truth is that it does not run at all. So it goes about as fast as you can push it... Seriously, the motor isnt seized, all the bits are there, its just been sitting since it was almost new. I havent had time to fuck with it yet, I got home late last night. There seems to be no rust or gunk in the tank, but anything rubber or plastic has deteriorated from being outside in the desert. But Id rather have that, than if it were sitting in a snowbank for a few years... In any case, I got my $20 worth.
