WTB moped, located in Bakersfield CA

Looking for a starter moped. I bought a free spirit thats broke but I'm getting bogged down with the DMV and a bunch of title issues. Cant wait till May for the CHP inspection and want to find another bike that's running. Under 500 if possible, thanks everyone.

look in the wiki for a walk thru, skip dmv all together and mail like emil said, snail mail.(edited)

Re: WTB moped, located in Bakersfield CA

Oh damn, that would have saved me four trips to the DMV last week. Thanks for the heads up, I'll look into it as soon as I am off work.

Re: WTB moped, located in Bakersfield CA

Hey, I appreciate the heads up on that form. That's so much easier than the shit I was dealing with. Good looking out!

Now its the waiting game. Good luck!

Re: WTB moped, located in Bakersfield CA

Still interested in another complete bike in the SoCal area. Running preferred but complete at the least. 300-500 range.

Re: WTB moped, located in Bakersfield CA

$300 -500 is going to be difficult in CA. I see on craigslist some good deals but you would have to drive a few hours. keep a eye on the Santa Cruz area.

Re: WTB moped, located in Bakersfield CA

Ok cool, thanks for the heads up. Been watching craigslist, there are definitely some things popping up here and there.

I have a 1977 Peugeot 103 complete minus 1 side panel

Re: WTB moped, located in Bakersfield CA

Don't know if they have them but this might worth a look.

Oh nice, what are you asking and do you have any photos? Location?

Re: WTB moped, located in Bakersfield CA

They are not my rides. Bummer. it looks like they are sold, sorry I will still keep a eye out

Re: WTB moped, located in Bakersfield CA

What brand of moped are you looking for or will any ride due?

Re: WTB moped, located in Bakersfield CA

I'm fairly open to bikes honestly. I really like vespa grande, puch maxi, honda hobbits, and the Peugeot's. Not sure what would be best for a starter bike

Re: WTB moped, located in Bakersfield CA

Maxis just seem super common and with tons of parts lying around so I imagine its a good starting bike to fuck around with

Re: WTB moped, located in Bakersfield CA

Anything puch is a good ideal, You can fix them up at a low cost and hotrod easy peasy.

Heck yeah. Id go for another puch for familiarity and interchangeable parts then.

Re: WTB moped, located in Bakersfield CA

Thanks, that's not a bad idea at all. I'll keep my eyes out for one.
