Moped:

  • 1987 Derbi DS50
I BOUGHT THIS MOPED ABOUT 18 YEARS AGO FROM A FRIEND WHO BOUGHT IT AT AN AUCTION. HE PAID 40$ FOR IT AND GOT QUICKLY ANNOYED WHEN HE COULD'NT GET IT TO RUN.HE TOLD ME TO COME AND GET IT AND IF I COULD GET IT TO RUN, HE WOULD TAKE 40$ FOR IT. I TOOK IT HOME AND LOOKED AT IT AND REALIZED THAT IT HAD AN ELECTRIC STARTER. I PUT JUMPER CABLES ON IT AND HIT THE START BUTTON AND IT CAME TO LIFE. I PAID MY FRIEND THE NEXT DAY!!!! IT NEEDS SOME CHASIS PARTS BECAUSE IT HAD BEEN WRECKED.I HAD NO IDEA THAT THESE THINGS WERE SO RARE.
