Re: 1979 Pacer Deluxe Mint Condition

That’s a great deal on a beautiful bike , I’ll have more than that on the clunker I’m restoring now

Re: 1979 Pacer Deluxe Mint Condition

Yep, I've often thought about the days when I rode it's predecessor, a 1978 Pacer through the streets of NYC, until it was stolen. Then I bought this one but very soon after my attention shifted to cars and then to motorcycles about 5 years ago.

Still have a sweet spot for my moped memories!

Overpriced Parts /

Wow just a few years ago that would be a $300 bike is definitely worth it nowadays though!

Re: 1979 Pacer Deluxe Mint Condition

79??

Looks like an 80 to me. Any paperwork with this?

Re: 1979 Pacer Deluxe Mint Condition

Could be. I no longer have the sales receipt, but I bought it direct from the U.S. distributor on Long Island. No license or registration was necessary in those days.

How does one tell a 1979 from a 1980?

Generally, 80 is the start of the use of the M1 as well as the paint scheme that is on that bike. There should be a sticker on the front of the frame behind the headlight that should say year.

Re: 1979 Pacer Deluxe Mint Condition

Thanks. I'll check MLK weekend (bike is garaged at my country house in Hudson NY) and report back.

Is it still for sale?

Re: 1979 Pacer Deluxe Mint Condition

Yeah, with the Covid situation this and everything else seems to have been back burnered.

Re: 1979 Pacer Deluxe Mint Condition

spin it positive: ready for aftermaarket clamp on expansion chamber.

Re: 1979 Pacer Deluxe Mint Condition

Well it only took 6 months but I finally checked and the Moped Army is correct!

The plate behind the headlight indicates that the bike was manufactured in February 1980.

Re: 1979 Pacer Deluxe Mint Condition

My son lives in Hudson! I visit there often. M1 are easier to find kits then the M0 and they are also way cheaper. I am still trying to wrap my head around NY moped prices even though I am born and raised Midtown Manhattan, they tend to run nearly double the more rural places.

Re: 1979 Pacer Deluxe Mint Condition

Haha

This Pacer led a dual life. Was in NYC for 35 years b4 moving to Hudson. I think it prefers the country air.😎

Regarding pricing, I’m seeing Pacers -all in worse condition with more miles - for $1000 and more. So I see this bike priced well below market.

Re: 1979 Pacer Deluxe Mint Condition

Poor exhaust pipe or do you have it?

My very first ped! It was rattle canned black and yellow. I have it torn down in a hundred pieces and forgotten about often...it had a puch pipe on it too lol

Re: 1979 Pacer Deluxe Mint Condition

55 miles? Does the speedo cable work?

Re: 1979 Pacer Deluxe Mint Condition

A few people already said in the comments that the pacers value seems to be going up. I wonder why? Besides it being old. I just got mine running again but it still needs some minor work.

Re: 1979 Pacer Deluxe Mint Condition

The original exhaust fell off while my son was riding and was lost. (Yeah, he had been drinking)

I replaced it with a Pacer muffler in excellent condition.

Re: 1979 Pacer Deluxe Mint Condition

Sure does. Current mileage is all the way up to 87!
