Just racked $250 worth of tickets on my ped so now i need some money. I didnt plan on selling this thing but... well cash is tight now.
I've got a 1979 Sachs Seville. Grey. Thing is in pretty good condition, i've always considered it my beater ped. Starts first kick (with choke) every time, and runs a solid 25-30 mph. Reliable as any german machine out there.
Only things that need to be taken care of "immediately" are:
-the throttleside handlebar clamp is split and on its way out. You'd have to replace it with a magura clamp from a puch or another sachs or anything magura. The throttle works fine for now but this part has seen better days, and needs to be replaced soon. No big.
-tires are both pretty dry rotted, and the rear one is bald from me doing brake skids. but i mean, who doesnt replace tires when they get a new ped anyways?
-No tail light bulb... last one blew and i havent replaced it yet.
-plastic speedo casing cracked off in the cold... whatever
Other than that, thats it. She looks like shit, the original grey has rattle can grey all over it from someone who tried to touch up some rust. The chrome is pretty clean, and free of rust in most other places. Headlight works, horn works, lights work (when you have the bulb).
-excellent brakes front and rear... sachs coaster style brakes help you stop on a dime.
-I fitted a 12mm Puch bing carb instead of a sachs bing, so you can actually jet the thing properly now.
-Has a Jamarcol expansion chamber (from treats) bolted to the header which helps the midrange quite a bit.
-Brand new chain.
I'm asking $300 obo... i really dont wanna sell the thing but if i can get $300 for it shes gone. Its a really great reliable daily rider for getting around town and more... i just rode 30 miles WOT, and i do this regularly, and she did not say a damn thing. bore the bing out to 14mm to match the 14mm intake and you're talkin 30mph solid. Email me or respond to my post here.. preferably email. Thank,
