1978 J.C. Penney Pinto, Second Chance

1978 J.C. Penney Pinto, Second Chance
I purchased this moped 9 years ago for $50 and never got around to my dream build on it before having to get rid of it during a move. I traded by friend.

Fast forward 8 years......I'm back in town and trade for the Pinto back. It has now been picked and raided for parts over the years.....not much left.
My roommate at the time decides to powder-coat the frame as a birthday present for me

The next spring there is a global pandemic and my old hobby has me itching. My friends have continued building mopeds and a full blown moped shop in a detached garage.

That brings us to now, with more time on my hands and a bit of money saved up and no other was to spend it. Lets turn this bucket of bolts into something rad!
