Derbi Variant Sport

Micah Wright /

Sadly selling my Derbi Variant's. Had a lot of fun with them but unfortunately as I was overseas, they were left out over the past few years.

I have two derbi variant's ...one is the sport.

I spent a good deal of money over many years to keep them keeping them running, maintained and replacing parts when needed. They both had been running perfectly before I went abroad.

The exterior has obviously degraded from being out. It was such a beautiful bike it is sad to see what it has become...but what's done is done. I had them running again about 6 months ago but noticed a fuel leak. A couple of months ago we replaced the variant sport gas tank with a brand new tank and it was running again.

However now the front tire has locked up all of a sudden. It is pretty much now beyond the time I have for it and it is time to sell it. I don't think it will start at moment but I don't have the gas for it either.

Happy to show the bikes if somebody in the area is interested.

Not going to part it out at moment but if you want to buy for parts that is fine.

$700 for both(edited)

Hi all, sorry I have been out of response on this.

I first want to make clear that though I'm pretty sure it will run, it is not currently running right now. I haven't even tried to be honest. I don't have gas and the front tire is locked up. I might try one of these days though. I'm certainly happy to show the bikes to anyone who wants to view them.

I know some of you will be upset with this response; but I can only say that I figured the value of the bikes were greater that what I posted though I couldn't be sure. I put in a lot of money on these and would love to see a fair return on that investment.

I know I listed a price but as there has been such a great response I feel I have no choice but to accept the best offer that someone gives me. I can get back to you all. I love these bikes but it is beyond the time I have at this point so I want to make sure they go to somebody who really wants the bikes. I'll respond to your messages as soon as I can.

Yeah they are nothing compared to a double tube frame magnum MK2 with Hydro forks and shocks for my 200lb but I need to sell all of them,

everybody wants just the 86 derbi sport but I need to sell all of them so if someone makes an offer for all of them, plus I have a spare 87 flat reed engine and a spare 87 sport forks, So thats near 2000 bucks for everything derbi I got ,

A few years ago I sold everything I had sachs moped and got 1,050 for a eagle 3 and spare engine, sold a laser 50 and most everything I owned Italian/v1 for 1,200$ and I sold three perfect complete but non running Tomos a3 bullets for 1,100$

Derbi is the best belt drive moped ever (Well Vespa grand is pretty good too) and all the rest are lightweight subframe pieces of crap requiring lots of modifications and money to hold a 200 pound rider to go fast and French Moped’s well I hope you have patience and money,

Come over with the truck and cash and maybe I’ll talk about buying everything derbi I have,

Honestly if i hadn't gotten fucked by WildCard when i bought his, which ended up costing about $2000 after fixing everything he lied about, i would probably make a trip and buy all yours for that.

Long story short, i bought a Derbi Variant sport on here awhile back and had it shipped from Georgia. It was listed in a thread on here and described to me very specifically via PM as having its engine fully rebuilt and serviced, ready to ride needing nothing, with any and all broken parts replaced, "rips to 40". Pictures looked good so i paid for it and waited for it to come. What showed up was a VERY rusty variant with a badly dented rear mag, rotted tires, frayed/broken cables, a bent and barely functioning pedal mode selector shaft, cracked plastics, worn out sprockets, improperly spaced wheels, and a filthy grease caked engine that was never rebuilt, and had all the original leaky hard oil seals. I popped the cylinder off and saw that he had installed the reed block backward and the metal reed stoppers were grinding into the crank and making metal shavings. ring gap was way out of spec. Drained the tiny amount of oil that smelled like sewage and had metal flake in it. Gas tank had petrified lacquer chunks in the bottom that plugged the petcock. the bike likely sat in a horse stall for 20 years the way is smelled...

At the end of the day i payed $1200 for that bike expecting a ready to ride machine, when instead i got a machine that needed many hours, a full teardown and hundreds of dollars to even make rideable. I tried to send it back, but he refused to cover return shipping even though he clearly defrauded me intentionally, and even threatened to fly up to me and find me if i didn't drop the Paypal case....i ended up dropping it because i didn't want to chance some maniac showing up at my door, and pursuing it would have meant unintentionally putting some close friends into uncomfortable positions... so i waited like 8 months to even touch the bike because of the sour taste it left in my mouth. now its pretty much done.

I didn't tell the story because i had been documenting the rebuild showing everything wrong with the bike, with screenshots of messages...by the time i was done the iron was cool and i was mostly over it, and didnt want to reopen old wounds. But maybe ill do it anyway ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
