A New Batch of Classic Mopeds at 1977 Mopeds


There aren't many classic style mopeds being made anymore; with a very few exceptions, all you see are CVT scooters.  Some of us think a real moped has to look like the 2-speed Sachs Prima seen above.

But 1977 Mopeds always manages to find a batch of bikes from the golden age of mopeds to restore and sell. Here's the latest batch.

A Yamaha from Germany: The Sting



Yamaha never actually imported this moped into to the US, but at least one owner did, and 1977 Mopeds has one for sale. The basic bike is a rare 50cc "dirt ped" designed for on and off-road use. It came with a 50cc engine and a 2-speed automatic transmission, but this one's been customized by 1977 Mopeds and also features a Gianelli exhaust, 60cc kit, and high compression head.

They're asking $1299 shipped- you can see it here.

Another custom Honda Ruckus


The Honda Ruckus is a natural platform for customization. There are a lot of bolt-on parts available for it, but that's not enough for some builders- like the guys who produced this stretched "Bagger" Ruckus seen at Air Society. Check out all the photos and the story here.
