I originally bought this bike from Larry (MopedLar) in New Jersey at one of his great countryside rides. I bought it because it was cheap. I think it was $250 running. For a few years I didn't really ride it that much. I started liking the look of Pintos and Swingers and decided to use this one as a winter project. I installed new front forks, the 70cc Athena kit, Techno Esoril pipe, and had it powder coated Emerald Flake by a guy in Frederick MD. I was able to take it back up to MopedLar's last moped ride. I put a few thousand miles on this one and it still looks mint. Powder coat is incredibly resilient.
