wtb: moped for a "hefty" friend

Re: wtb: moped for a "hefty" friend

Get him a 2 speed what ever you get. Something kitted for more power if you can find it.

Motobecane or Gadabout.

Or don't, and get a puch anyway. Mine handles my 6'1" 280 pound frame just fine. I just take a little longer to get up to speed.

Re: wtb: moped for a "hefty" friend

Get a Motobecane for anybody!

my buddy is like 260lbs and he rides a 96 targa lx i found him for $220.

It already had a bi-turbo on it and it still accerates decent and pulls him to 35mph or so pretty easily. I did some minor porting but a lightly modded tomos should get him around fine.

and really most mopeds will haul him around. Its all in the gearing.

Re: wtb: moped for a "hefty" friend

I weigh 235 and all peds I have owned will pull me up to the govened speed. Some just take a little longer and slow on the hills.
