Moped wanted
« on: December 14, 2009, 06:25:22 PM »
Due to a mate getting into old nopeds and wanting me to join him in the fun I am on the look out for one. I rather fancy a Puch MS50. If anyone has something for sale I would appreciate an email. Thanks.

It might be. I will find out and let you know. Big wheels and not speed-restricted like modern ones. It was bought off a fellow in Milton Keynes who does NSU cars and bikes.

It seems that i have inadvertantly supplied a bike to Bob Purton's Essex moped chapter (small world)..... More scuffles on Southend seafront like the sixties ,,,

 Incidentally the EACC have runs in Essex, The NACC don't have much in Essex, but many runs in Suffolk ,,,,,of course its only 'over the water' for Nick D's headcorn rally in September

Hi Dave. Yes that was funny wasnt it! Its a small world! Steve Leonard is joining our little moped band, I bought a nice little Tomos last week which I will be using so the trio will consist of A Quickly, your old Puch Maxi and the Tomos. Do keep us posted for the Essex ride outs. Cheers, Bob

Not a Cockhouse Borgir! New a guy who rode one from Bristol to Exeter to see his lady friend, except when he was going home to Bristol. Not surprisingly the relationship failed in direct proportion to the Cockhouse's reliability on the A38. Now if he had bought a Microcar.......

It's fizzy-fest on the forum. Who can blame them when good times are available for those with balance and no weight issues. Are Ariel Three's allowed?

 Oooh YES! Let the Arial Three's in! If ever there was a moped to get me excited, it's one of those, actully, make that two of those, or three or four.....  I can never make out why the poor old Arial is so vilified (spelling!) by all, it's a good looking item, it's got the correct amount of wheels to be sensible, and it's DIFFERANT!!  I want a blue one with white tyres, but you didn't hear me say that, just in case some damn fool actully offers me one.....

 Lets have a virtual moped meet right here on the forum! After all, there's that virtual Goggo meet taking place elsewhere. Lets pretend its Burford in late September with a roadrun at 10am to the A38 to see if that Corgi is still out there. Prizes for shinest kickstart & most inventive story for arriving at a virtual rally! I might even debut the Bamby several months early if anyone picks up on this....

 Whadda you mean I'm stark raving bonkers?!......   In fact I'm off right now to find a photo of Thread Bear's chrispy old orange Goggo T250 I've got from years ago to join the virtual Goggo meet.  I want that grot award!!!!!!!    ;D

A cheap Ariel Three Granny killer for young Root there, and the correct colour coded paintwork. Damn fine little chaps and something I can ride. Without paps it might suit our IC specialist as he might need an IC once he has fallen off it! They are not as bad as all that, actually, just a different set of skills. The Honda Stream was a bit of a lift of it, perhaps they are collectable now.
