1978 PA50 for sale

I bought this because it was only for sale as a pair ( I wanted the Honda Express that came with it). It was "restored" and it looks like new. It runs, but seems to have low compression? It has got no power for hills and is kind of slow. i don't know what is wrong with it.... Not interested in figuring it out. It is in Asheville, NC ( no shipping ). I have a couple new tires for it also. $1200 OBO.

Re: 1978 PA50 for sale

Nice bike, sadly it's a pa50-1. So non variated, different cases carb etc. 20mph max...probably nothing wrong with it at all.

Good luck with the sale but that's pretty expensive for the undesirable model...

Re: 1978 PA50 for sale

The "problem" is that it is a Pa-50I vs. a Pa-50II. This has a top speed of 20 mph vs 30 for the II. It was made for states that had lower allowable speeds for mopeds back in the day. Check out the wiki for the differences in the 2 models, and what can be done about it.

Damn, down to the minute!

You do have condition in your side, the buyer you want may be a collector. Not a rider.

Re: 1978 PA50 for sale

$1200? I've seen more factory new condition PA50i's than any other moped. I think they're so damn slow that people bought them, rode them a couple of times and put them in their garage. I've personally never paid more than $200 for one and the only real value this has is to someone who isn't going to ride it

Re: 1978 PA50 for sale

MAKE AN OFFER... I didn't know what it's worth to begin with so I had to start somewhere. Thank you all for the input. The thing looks brand new.

Re: 1978 PA50 for sale

Does it have pedals and the cranks?

Re: 1978 PA50 for sale

wish you were closer to MD... i'd make an offer and PA50-ii swap her

Looks like the left side of the pedal shaft is broken off?

Re: 1978 PA50 for sale

It has pedals and cranks. It was broken it's been repaired
