Re: FS: Derbi FD 2k Shipped

That a pedal crank on it?

Re: FS: Derbi FD 2k Shipped

Yes, and uses the smallest crank arms with about 8” of clearance. Can only find the cranks in Spain. Been looking for awhile

Re: FS: Derbi FD 2k Shipped

It has the pedal cranks but no pedal and no pedal chain. Confirmed run good 👍

the laws in spain required mopeds to have pedals up until a certain year in the 80s...the spanish market shifty 50s always have some suuuuper janky ass pedal setup to skirt the moto classification and are usually just barely hooked up and missing the pedals/chain and shit. sick because in states like CA you can point at the pedals if you get pulled over and be like "it's got pedals officer, it's a moped"

FYI you need a M1 License, Registration, a Plate, ID, and Insurance Now in CA! Times are a changing. Lol

You've needed an M1, registration, and plate for a long time now. You don't need insurance.

Technically all motor vehicles operated on the road in CA need to be insured. Technically, technically a moped is a “device” and not a “vehicle” but good luck having a cop say “oh ok” to that. (edited)

Eh, I guess you may be right. Dmv only says insurance isn't required to register a bike.

As far as talking cops out of giving a shit, it's pretty easy. I used to carry around an expired dmv handbook and point to a line that said license and insurance not required. I got out of tickets and impound at least half a dozen times. They used to not even know what a moped was and as soon as I'd confidently start spouting off rules they'd lose interest. Even despite the fact that my beater bike didn't have any lights, a plate, and I was very clearly going over 30mph.

The only time a cop didn't fall for it was when he saw me going 50+. He wasn't having any of it and impounded my bike. The next day I went down to the station and, with the expired dmv handbook, convinced one of the vehicle detectives that they had no right to impound my bike.

Cops got wise after I a bit I think, but it may have gotten weird again what with all of the electric bikes around. I don't think those require insurance.

Re: FS: Derbi FD 2k Shipped

Yup, you won’t get your registration pulled without insurance like on a motorcycle, but it’s a bit of a gray area still altogether and ebikes are making more of a fog.

Anyways, this bike is fuckin sick and someone should totally grab it and be happy to have such a cool thang.
