Hi everyone...I'm trying to get my first moped and have a possibility. Having known nothing at all and need a lot of help, I'm looking at this one bike, but don't know what I'm in for.
According to the previous owner, it's a 79 Batavus that's currently not running. He says he's a mechanic and it'll need new pistons. I wish I knew more, but that's all the details I was given. I'll have a look at it on Saturday though, depending on what you guys say.
So my questions are, how much do you think it would cost for new pistons, are they hard to find, and what other issues besides rust would I be looking for?
I'm not terribly mechanically inclined, but I'd probably be able to do the repair myself if it's simple enough. He's offering it up for 75.00, but with the repairs, I wouldn't know how much I'd be investing to get it up and running.
Any help would be appreciated!
