pic2...

i drove an hour to pick this up under the impression it was a pinto..

you can see why i thought that from what the guy described it. :]

i figured i would buy it since i put the driving time in.

Re: FS- '80 Sachs Hercules

Man you have SO many bikes I would buy if you were a bit closer to Louisville Ky.

(6 hours is just a bit steep.)

Re: FS- '80 Sachs Hercules

Can you come to Cincinnati

Re: FS- '80 Sachs Hercules

Yeah I mean maybe. Not making a commitment or anything.

Re: FS- '80 Sachs Hercules

FUCK! i hate ohio

Re: FS- '80 Sachs Hercules

almost every other garage has a old ped up here.

honestly.

Re: FS- '80 Sachs Hercules

That's what I hear I mean really!

Re: FS- '80 Sachs Hercules

does this ped make compression, spark? does it run? is it froze up? what's the skiny? i'm interested, live less than a couple hours away.

Re: FS- '80 Sachs Hercules

Joe yeah i remember you emailed me about having a sachs motor..

well now i actually do!

it has strong spark, and strong compression.

all it needs is a throttle assem.

come down here and get it!

Re: FS- '80 Sachs Hercules

i found a Columbia with a good sachs motor and made the transplant that day. So now i have a full sachs balboa and a columbia rolling frame. But my friend brian is bit by the bug now and may well be interested. he is coming over tonight so i will try to talk him into picking this up. thanks for getting back to me so quick though.

Re: FS- '80 Sachs Hercules

is the tank clean, dusty rust or full of heavy rust?

Re: FS- '80 Sachs Hercules

the tanks actually cleaner on the inside then the outside.

Re: FS- '80 Sachs Hercules

awesome , if i can't talk him into it i might have to add another sachs to keep my balboa company on those lonely nights in my dinning room. i will talk to him tonight and let you know. Joe

Re: FS- '80 Sachs Hercules

for sure, if he doesn't want it. you should pick it up.

peds are much happier when kept together, they like to socialize just like humans!

Re: FS- '80 Sachs Hercules

other than throttle assembly what else does this need to run?

how do the electrical components look (switches and such..)?

did you take the cover off and see if the points and all that look ok?

Re: FS- '80 Sachs Hercules

the switches are there.

the points are good.

as far as i can tell it only needs a throttle assembly and a cable.

I have a cable to throw in.

Re: FS- '80 Sachs Hercules

is the speedo busted? hard to see in second pic. looks sunk in

Re: FS- '80 Sachs Hercules

its slid out of its case in the pic.

i'm certain i can pop it back in..

Re: FS- '80 Sachs Hercules

If i said i could pic it up tomorrow would you take 200 cash.? don't make me beg....

Re: FS- '80 Sachs Hercules

ᴛᴇʀʀʏ ᴅᴇᴀɴ /

this bike is 80% better than a pinto.

Re: FS- '80 Sachs Hercules

the guy i got it from was a real goon.

he looked like the banjo boy from deliverance.

Re: FS- '80 Sachs Hercules

Sachs jugs have letters right?

where/ how do you tell the difference?

Re: FS- '80 Sachs Hercules

yea cauvel, loving that your hooked now

Re: FS- '80 Sachs Hercules

Re: FS- '80 Sachs Hercules

so very hooked. must slow down after this one. gonna run out of money and space.

Re: FS- '80 Sachs Hercules

and i only have three. two and a half my bad

Re: FS- '80 Sachs Hercules

soon your gonna have to come back to chicago, our new place has a garage so we can work on our peds all the time instead of having to drive to the garage we have now

Re: FS- '80 Sachs Hercules

i'm getting a place with my friend brian and he is buying the rolling frame columbia off of me and we are gonna find a place that has a garage or easily excessable basement for a ped workshop. He also has been bit by the moped bug.
