Moped Mechanic in SF Bay Area??

Matt Bettencourt /

i took my 1977 foxi gt into a motorcycle shop to get a new cylinder head put on (49 - 70cc) and the mechanic didn't finish the job. in the process he also took apart and destroyed my clutch. it was an original sachs set up (504). so now i have a non-working moped.

if anybody knows of somebody in the bay area who can get/put on a clutch for me please let me know. we have a new baby so there's zero chance i'm gonna have time to learn via youtube how to do that operation!

Dude, babies are easy, and mopeds are dumb. You can do it.

Ha. You'll have plenty of time . New babies sleep about twenty hours a day .

You just have to learn how not to make them cry .

Mommy's nipples will go a long way in that^ direction .

Screaming "Fuck Mopeds!" Right after baby falls to sleep is inevitable, but still a bad idea.

Treatland bought all of Mike Cornell's sachs inventory. Take pictures and let Dana know what u are looking for. At least get the parts. I haven't worked on Sachs stuff and I live in Davis. And I don't do anything except for free. So keep posting with pictures or pm me. Bummer on the mistake of bringing a moped to a motorcycle shop. That's usually not a great idea. This can't be too difficult unless the mechanic really screwed things up and stripped other bolts. And the jug is on wrong. I imagine the whole thing has to come off to check his work.
