I'm a newbie looking for my first moped. Looking for a top tank.

So I have been looking for my first moped lately and was wondering if anyone had any for sale or any leads? I'm looking a top tank preferably and live in the Cincinnati, OH area. I'm preferring to stay below $500.

I also have found one that is a 1968 Sears / Puch Sabre and was wondering if that'd be a decent first bike or too advanced. They're selling for $600, which is a little more than I would want to pay.

I have been looking through there, but I couldn't find anything on a puch sabre there though.

Not a moped. a saber is a motorcycle

That's good to find out, thanks for letting me know.

I think he lowered it to 350 if you want to drive to Hbg Pa area.

Thanks, I'm gonna take a look into that one. Would that be a decent first moped?

no tracs suck. i was like you, wanting a top tank, no matter what brand or whatever.

SO GLAD I GOT A HOBBIT even though its a step through.

a fast/reliable step through is way better than a slow top tank..

you can always try to custom a top tank later but learn about mopeds first and listen to these guys when they say fuckatoptank.

eventually you wont even care about them anymore. truth.

I just like the look of the top tank as opposed to the step through. I did toy with the idea of trying to find some help down here with buying a cheaper step through then trying to convert it actually.

Mmmm puch magnum. Nothing could compare, nothing could compare to you

Re: I'm a newbie looking for my first moped. Looking for a top tank.

I found 2 magnums, but they were both $1000+, which is way more than I want to / can spend

Re: I'm a newbie looking for my first moped. Looking for a top tank.

top tank is ganna run you a pretty penny, go with a maxi or sprint dont spend more then 600

Re: I'm a newbie looking for my first moped. Looking for a top tank.

Yea, that's kind of how it seems to be right now. There's a Trac Hawk for $350 , but it's also a bit of a hike to get to it.

Re: I'm a newbie looking for my first moped. Looking for a top tank.

I sell you a running puch magnum XK for $700. I'm in maryland near WASH.DC

That would be awesome, but I'd have no means of getting there and back and my budget is a little tight
