I haven't seen any runners available near Massachusetts for under $500 since April. Even a non-runner for $300 would be a really good deal if it was complete. Heck I was considering buying a seized engine last night for $100. I am sure that in some parts of the country there are guru-moped types who can find a moped for $100 and put all their expertise and spare parts and mods into it and do all the work on it themselves who are in the game for the pure love of mopeds and I am so grateful to all of them as they are invaluable in helping the rest of us useless noobs fix the shit they overpaid for, while they get endlessly frustrated from the stupid stuff we do and failure to listen to sound advice, or even understand seemingly simple things like ignition and wiring. Then there are those of us who love mopeds or are reconnecting to something from long ago and mostly want to ride, but are willing to wrench and learn, but will probably never hone a cylinder, mill a head, weld a pipe, or port an engine as they don't have the expertise, tools, time, or money. I got back into the game after 33 years as I was about to let go of the rest of what was left of my childhood moped for short money and decided to take a run at fixing it. So glad I did, but there is some stuff I'll never be able to do for one reason or another and as a result I might have to pay a little more for a fleet bike. Ain't nothing wrong with that. I can understand how a Maxi could be worth $1000 and why it pisses many off. Whatever. But I have to say there is no better feeling than fixing your shit and running it down the road in the sun and on dry pavement and riding with family. The harmonic sound of multiple mopeds tooling down a country rode is one of the coolest things I could hope for in these times and most of us here on this forum could prolly agree on that.
