The Dead Pinto

Angry Hipster /

I came across this picture of a pinto on facebook. From a post by a guy who was closing down and liquidating a motorcycle scrap yard.


So, I decided to drive 5hrs one way and pay $50 to pick up this dead pinto that has been sitting in the field of a motorcycle salvage yard for decades.

I had a blow out that destroyed my fender the car was in sad looking shape, but continued to make the trek.

After making it back I made the obligatory post to the face book group soley based on pictures of loading and unloading mopeds.


My first response came from a hater, who I rebutted and called out, he fucked off..

Looks like I can't post anymore pics in this post, I'll reply with more pics and the continuation of this saga.

Here are some pics of it once I got it to the garage..


I've been spraying it down with PB Blaster, letting it soak, and taking inventory.

Looks like it will need:



Front Rim

Handle Bars

Pedal Crank



DJ Lou from the magnetos was cool as hell and offered to hook me up with a couple parts

The bike is kind of a side project, but I just wanted to rescue it. Mopeds are a piece of history and hard to find and it makes me happy to restore and preserve this one instead of writing it off.

Why Handlebars, Pipe and Pedalcrank? it seems to have those and they don^'t look that bad.

I'm going to copy and post this in General Discussion

The bars are rusty as hell, but in theory could be used.

The pipe has a section missing that has been rusted out.

The pedals crank is bent and very rusty, maybe can be saved...
