Re: SSR Lazer 5 moped upgrades

Mitchel Yancey /

I started this thread to get advice on upgrading my SSR Lazer 5 moped, but it somehow became an advertising extravaganza for "Responsible Jon". And, yes, this is pretty funny.

Re: SSR Lazer 5 moped upgrades

I found the original thread where this shit comes from. It's even funnier there... https://www.mopedarmy.com/forums/read.php?1,930543

required reading would be the 2stroke vs 4stroke thread with the 500 dollar prize.

can anyone here tell me if a 2011 tomos top tank cafe racer style moped is worth $1,700. Either going to sell mine to buy that one, or upgrade mine if I can find someone to help me since I don't exactly know what I'm doing

Re: SSR Lazer 5 moped upgrades

Now we're cooking with gas!!

Re: SSR Lazer 5 moped upgrades

Mitchel that's the Streetmate R that's 17 bills, not a top tank at all, it's a plastic compartment. A Tomos LX from Myron's or Choke has a real top tank that holds 1.5 gallons and has autolube and can be had with replacement vintage headlight and sprocket change to get it up to 37, for 1550. My Yamaha has no top tank, no pedals, no autolube and goes 42, passes cars and smokes all 49cc 4 stroke scooters. That one's 700

Yea, I know the Tomos LX. Myron told me it'd cost that much to get it to 40mph. But, that's not the one I'm talking about. There is one in his shop when you walk in just off to the left. It has an older cafe racer style look to it. It looks awesome and I love that old vintage top tank look.

What kind of bike do you have? Any Pics or anything I can look up online? It sounds like a fast ride. I just want something faster really that looks good. Tired of going so slow off the line and maxing out at 30mph.

Re: SSR Lazer 5 moped upgrades

I'll sell you my 62mph magnum for $1,700

Re: SSR Lazer 5 moped upgrades

Mitchel Yancey /

I don't have all the money right now, plus I still need to sell mine.

I though the SSR Lazer 5 was a piece of shit, low quality chinese clone four stroke made out of pot metal, guaranteed to break down at 2 hrs of operation and only sold by crooked lying dealers. Or did I miss something?

Re: SSR Lazer 5 moped upgrades

Mitchel Yancey /

You're right...and as an owner of one I can vouch for that. I've had nothing but problems with this moped since I bought it. It works decently now to get around, but super slow off the line. I'm lucky cars don't hit me to push me out of the way.

Re: SSR Lazer 5 moped upgrades

Here's a top tank in your area... https://www.mopedarmy.com/forums/read.php?2,2836322

For those who missed the BS forum

So sweet. Feels like you're going 100. Don't really want it to go but I need to streamline my stable

Re: SSR Lazer 5 moped upgrades

Mitchel Yancey /

Yea, I emailed that guy already. He's asking $1,200 obo...I like it, but need a few hundred more to work with him on the price. That bike is a puch magnum right? And, my only other worry is getting a moped I know nothing about, and it breaks on me.

Re: SSR Lazer 5 moped upgrades

Sprockets, big bore kits, Performamce CDI...just to name a few.

Re: SSR Lazer 5 moped upgrades

This thread is crazy. Did someone hack the army user's cuz that would never have been Phillip responding in that first post. He would never have owned a lazer. Was he just trolling? I get the rest of the repeated posts were folks being good MA trolls. But the first seems off. Such an old post anyway. Good job Toledo for bringing it back.
