1979 Derbi Variant TT

Tyler Chenevert /

I picked up this Derbi Variant TT the other day, it's my first moped but i dabble with small engine repair and just love projects in general...plus I scored it for the small price of $25. Anywho, I am looking for the bracket that goes around the rear tire and has the footpegs attached. Someone cut it on both sides, and also the small pieces of flat stock attaching it to the body. If anyone has one, please let me know.

Hi, congrats on your new derbi! Had a few yellow ones myself! Anywho, those rear buddy pegs always snap right there, no biggie I usually just weld them back on and they seem to hold. Have you tried to get your tt running yet?

That may just be what happens, figured i would see whats available for parts first. I haven't tried to get it running yet, im going to be ordering some tires in the next day or two and once i get those in place i plan on putting some gas in and giving her a go.

Wow, $25? Goddamn, you are lucky. Nice bike, I would kill for one of those.

I used these tires on my tt and they are great! https://www.treatland.tv/puch-maxi-friendly-KNOBBY-party-in-17-x-2-25-p/puch-maxi-knobby-party.htm

The derby is going up for sale. I prefer face to face transactions. The front tire was replaced, as well as fork tube dust covers. I tried to get it started, but was unsuccessful. It's not getting spark. The paint is really clean, it's just dirty in the photo. Soapy water is all she needs. I have a new rear tire and tube for it as well just didn't get that far. The foot pegs were bent, I had found a replacement set with the pins really cheap but again, didn't get that far. I think 300 is a fair price...anyone interested?

It's located in Maine, probably worth knowing.
