And we on the east coast say the same thing when something weird shows up out there!

Re: 2 Barn Mopeds/$200

Smooth shifting. You almost cannot feel it

We don't get much good stuff over here either.... You'll get lucky sometime, but it's rare.

Re: 2 Barn Mopeds/$200

Should I go get 'em? I'm only 35 miles away. Kinda like that Motobecane.

Absolutely! Then you can give me the that there Solo ;)

That is not a 2-speed pulley. A 2-speed pulley looks like this

Re: 2 Barn Mopeds/$200

I called the guy. Waiting on call back about tank conditions. Might go Saturday. Really don't need more stuff. Somebody talk me out of it!! Or go buy them before Saturday.

Re: 2 Barn Mopeds/$200

I just looked at the 40/2 cover and went no further. It does look like it is the pitiful single speed solid pulley so it is a 40/1 either a replaced cover

Guys, I'm retired, and therefore have the time to search mopeds in the greater New York area.

If my posts can result in a moped finding a new home with the possibility of someone with the energy and skills of bringing back to life one of these neglected machines, I am happy.

By the way, I am a die hard San Francisco 49er fan. You might want to watch what is going o with my team!!!

Re: 2 Barn Mopeds/$200

Go 49ers!

Re: 2 Barn Mopeds/$200

Well I just brought them home. Only spent a few minutes checking them out. Moby appears to be seized. I don't know how to tell which engine it has. Side covers missing, one chain missing. tank rusty inside but bottom is solid. Seat is good, shows 1438 miles. My first thought is part it out. Solo turns over, very clean tank inside, shows 365 miles, covers say water cooled automatic but I think it's wrong. Will get a better look in the daylight. They're just gonna sit for now as my yellow Yamahopper is more important right now. Got 'em cheap and they're saved from the junkman.

Re: 2 Barn Mopeds/$200

The solo's are "water cooled", there is a cavity inside the cylinder that holds coolant. The fill plug is the hex head screw by the spark plug.

Bob, glad you found them and saved them from an unspoken fate.

I don't know . I have to learn some new stuff on this set-up. Been around Yamahoppers so long I haven't worked on much other small stuff. Just that Hero that I have which is just sitting right now also

Re: 2 Barn Mopeds/$200

That ugly Solo actually runs! Squirted some penetrating oil thru the spark plug hole to get things moving again. thought I heard a pop. Squirted some gas thru plug hole and it fired immediately. Looking at the VIN plate it does say 40/2 which matches the trim piece. But the clutch doesn't have the bolts around the circumference . With only 365 miles on the bike you'd think the engine should still be the original one. So the Odyssey of the Odyssey begins.
