1977 garelli gulp matic deluxe worth?

I made the mistake of selling my other moped and I want another. I found a decent shape Garelli 2 speed with like 500 or so miles. It needs a few things such as headlight, “tune up”, and something else... what’s a fair price to offer? I was hoping to talk him down it’s been for sale forever

Re: 1977 garelli gulp matic deluxe worth?

How much is he asking?

$450 but it’s been up forever, it needs a couple things too

Re: 1977 garelli gulp matic deluxe worth?

Anybody got any idea?

Without pics and more details regarding its condition, any price estimate would be pure speculation.

Re: 1977 garelli gulp matic deluxe worth?

Needing a "tune up and something else" could be just in need of fresh gas or the motor is locked - go look at the bike, see what is missing, take pics and tell the seller you will get back to them...

He says it runs and when I’ve tried talking him down he says “I’m getting interested in the bike again, maybe due to the weather but I’d do $350... I was hoping to some how get him to $250-$300. I somehow don’t see him being serious about wanting to ride it again as it has 300 miles after 43 years

Re: 1977 garelli gulp matic deluxe worth?

Moped Lar (OFMC) /

That mileage might not be accurate. FB listings automatically put in 300 if you don’t specify. I seriously doubt it has 300 miles on it. I would ask him to verify mileage. Does it have or need a title?

Re: 1977 garelli gulp matic deluxe worth?

That picture of the bike looks like they took it in 1985 or something almost as vintage as the bike. I would suggest to meet up and view the bike itself,look see how dry rotted the tires really are, how rusty the fuel tank is, if the chain is fused, if it turns over, if lots of shyte is missing or ready to fall apart from age and lack of use. If it still looks good but you need to do more thinking take a ton of pictures so you can muse further of post back here. Let the owner know you are serious (if you are at that point) and tell them you will get back to them before (reasonable date/time) but you want to research a little to be sure you have the capability/capacity to put it back to the road... unless in person you find that you need to lay the cash down because it is like a gift bike that really only needs fuel and a headlight bulb...

Re: 1977 garelli gulp matic deluxe worth?

Larry is right about the mileage default. Also don't trust the odometer either. They are so easily removed or replaced. What you look for is signs of wear on the pedals, tires, and grips. If they look unworn and original, it may well have 300 miles. If it does, I would actually pay the $350 because at that low mileage, all the main components have a lot of life left.

Update guys it does run he sent me a video, the seat is a bit torn up and repaired with tape, but it seems to run good. The mileage is unknown and has no title. Is the missing title a problem?

Re: 1977 garelli gulp matic deluxe worth?

each state is different. Mine doesn't even title mopeds. Ask only someone from your home state.

Re: 1977 garelli gulp matic deluxe worth?

Regardless of true mileage, that 40 year old moped is gonna require new seals. Garellis are notorious for having air leaks from leaky seals. If it were me, I would offer $250 for it and you’ll probably end up at $300 after negotiations. $300 would be the most I’d pay for it.(edited)

Yeah it doesn’t have 300 he said it defaulted that which seems sneaky he wouldn’t change it. He sent me a video it’s in rougher shape than I thought but I’d still be interested for the right price. It’s also missing a title

Re: 1977 garelli gulp matic deluxe worth?

Moped Lar (OFMC) /

If it’s rougher than it looks in the picture, $200-$250 would be my price range.

Here’s the link guys it just concerns me no title, unknown mileage, rough shape

Re: 1977 garelli gulp matic deluxe worth?

I think I’m going to skip it guys it just is giving me a weird vibe and the no title stuff is concerning. It sucks it’s so hard to find peds where I’m at

Re: 1977 garelli gulp matic deluxe worth?

You will almost never find a moped with a title. Like maybe one in 500. Unless someone recently went to the trouble to get one. Most states didn’t require them way back then. A few do now. A title shouldn’t be a deal breaker, unless you live in a very difficult place to get one. But then Vermont title it.

Re: 1977 garelli gulp matic deluxe worth?

I think if not too far away.i would go look in person and check it out .take cash to make an offer ...i have one like that and really like it ..if they are hard to find where you are it looks like you have a decent start with that one..i would not let it get away without checking it out

Re: 1977 garelli gulp matic deluxe worth?

Moped Lar (OFMC) /

Cash is king. Like Seth said, you can always go the VT transferrable registration route.

Re: 1977 garelli gulp matic deluxe worth?

The guy didn’t seem willing to bargain he wanted $350

I’d love to buy it there were just so many unknowns I messaged the guy and shared my concerns over the lack of a title and I wouldn’t be interested for that price, I got a thumbs up emoji and that’s it. He didn’t seem that interested in reducing price any more

I’m just worried it could be stolen

Re: 1977 garelli gulp matic deluxe worth?

Mileage doesn't matter with mopeds, these are not cars.

Possible, but unlikely. I’ve purchased 18 mopeds over the past couple years. None had titles. None were stolen. I got bills of sale from the sellers, and took my chances. Ive run all the vins thru DMV, and all came back clean.

Re: 1977 garelli gulp matic deluxe worth?

I have 19 of them and no title to any of them...if stolen he would probably drop the price to get it gone and get the cash...it is your call but it looked to very fixable.in the video..i wish some of mine had been running and that.complete

Re: 1977 garelli gulp matic deluxe worth?

Moped Lar (OFMC) /

^I agree. I don’t think it’s stolen. The guy even has the OEM literature for it. I’d give $250 for it, but if the guy won’t budge off his price, I’d pass. Let him sit with it.

Re: 1977 garelli gulp matic deluxe worth?

Looks like a good enough deal for 350$ - yeah everyone has had a cheaper bike that only need gas and other stories, but cant base pricing on those unicorns. Title is unlikely in most cases (frigging strange weird cash grab shyte in USA having titles separate from registration anyhow)

Re: 1977 garelli gulp matic deluxe worth?

You say it's hard to find mopeds where you are, well he has a runner for possibly $350, or less if you bargain in person. VT reg it. Ok, it is not showroom condition, but it's just mopeds. Buy the damn thing already!
