For Sale - 1979 Black 50VLA in super-nice condition. I've owned this bike for the past 9 years and anybody who knows me and my Frenchies can attest to how well I have treated this bike. Black VLAs are a bit rare and especially in this condition. I'm asking $850.

Bought with 6149 miles; up to about 8500 now. That is the original speedo, still working. Tank is GREAT. This bike has never left me stranded ever, not once. Starts quarter kick every time, goes about 40mph with that unbeatable torquey take off that you love.

Comes with Maryland Title (!). I've done a lot to this bike over the years:

IRC Zap tires

Malossi 62cc Kit - bought on eBay France back in 2009

Mild porting and everything was matched back then

Milled head with decomp fully functional

Original case with (likely) original seals

Original clutch etc

SHA 16.16, cable choke

Peugeot bars (lower than stock)

Big Couch seat (sorry original VLA seat is not available, but this is better)

External condenser (original was still working though)

Malossi X Belt

Handy Bikes NOS side covers (have a few scratches now though)

NOS plug cap

My custom "Varispring" mod that keeps the variator in a lower gearing for longer

So much of the bike is still original, including the lock (I have the key!), the pedals are still nice, the cranks are not too bent (you can pedal), the fenders are great, and the paint is in nice condition. Original mirror is looking nice, tank embellisher strip is NOS, etc etc. This bike lived inside for many, many years.

So yeah there are a couple little things that are not perfect. The seat has a little tear in the stitching. The pipe that is shown in the pics is not all that awesome and it came loose and fucked up the threads on that great old Malossi cylinder. I'm going to put a stocker on there for the new owner. Or nothing, your choice. But, the threads are a little weak now. Bummer - and first time this ever happened to me. This pipe kind of sucks, and um, you can have it with the bike.

I have a video of me starting it 1/4 kick but I can't get it to preview here, bummer.

Anyway, here it is, a real nice daily rider in bitchin' black. Price is $850 - come to LGN rally and pick it up. IM for details etc.
