The 1960 Motobecane AV89 mopeds, nicknamed Chaudron (meaning “old thumper”or “old barrel”) were considered the luxury models of their time and are highly sought after today for their styling and unique features
This particular bike was purchased in a town near Angoulême and has a interesting past. The moped was owned by a 85 year old farmer who rode it often and was known to take regular trips to Paris on it. Riding a moped to Paris may not sound so incredible until you realize that its a 4 hour drive in a car via the highway. Now, imagine someone in their mid eighties making that trip at 50km/hr (30 mph) along old country roads and dealing with bitter cold temperatures or pouring rain. That is one tough old man!
This moped is complete but is not currently running. The engine is stuck and there is a hole in the frame/tank so Maarten is including an additional good frame.
This Motobecane moped is located in The Dordogne, France but may be available to ship worldwide. It is solely the purchasers responsibility to make shipping or pick up arrangements. Maarten will assist and help in any reasonable way possible but all transportation and logistic costs and liability is strictly between the buyer and the shipping company. Some mopeds, depending on the make and model may be able to be disassembled for parcel type shipment. Please contact Maarten to inquire about this bike or others. Contact Maarten Here
Awesome and Extremely Rare! Running 1959 Lucer Special Sport
This Lucer Spécial Sport was previously owned by a French Air Force captain who was based out of far northern France near the town of Hazebrouck (near Lille, Dunkirk, etc). After WWII, Hazebouck became the epicenter for bicycle and moped production including one very famous manufacturer, Lucer. Lucer (later acquired by VAP SA) built quality machines and had much influence on the growing industry. Though their bicycle and moped production ceased many decades ago, their heritage stills remains strong even today in that area.
The captain had purchased the aging Lucer locally there with plans of making it his post retirement restoration project but it ended up just sitting in isolation inside the pilot’s barn located in Église-Neuve-de-Vergt, France. He thought often about his soon to be prized Lucer top-tank moped and how he would one day return it to it’s glorious original condition. But those countryside trips on her through the rolling back roads of rural France never materialized past a daydream or two. Finally, one day not to long ago while the pilot and his lovely wife were cleaning their barn, she issued him the ultimate command, “get rid of the moped!”
The pilot reluctantly put up his Lucer for sale and Maarten went to work trying to acquire it from him for his own roaming collection. After much negotiating, some cash and a good bottle of wine, the Lucer became Maarten’s. The pilot’s wife is once again cooking dinners for him.

Once you ride a Batavus Regency top-tank moped, you will understand why they are one of our most favorite bikes. The Regency is different than most other Batavus mopeds due mainly to it’s use of the Laura M56 engine as opposed to the much more common Laura M48. The Laura M56 is a very smooth and reliable power-plant that features a Niksal plated cylinder, reed valve intake and belt driven transmission.
This particular moped is ready for endless fun! It has some dings and scratches but is in overall excellent condition. We didn’t fully recondition it but we did fully service the entire bike and installed new quality tires and other parts. It runs like new and will cruise all day very nicely at 30 mph and dodge gawkers and onlookers with precision.
$850.00 and free delivery throughout the Twin Cities/St Cloud metro areas. also includes a 30 day engine warranty. Contact us here for more information or buy it now here!
Very fast and rare version of a Puch Maxi/Newport that came with two awesome features that we almost never see together, oil-injection and auto-start! Never mix gas again. Just keep the oil reservoir behind the seat filled with 2 cycle oil and fill the gas tank with plain ol’gas right from the gas station pump! The auto-start portion of the moped is an ingenious feature that Puch developed and put on some of their machines. No levers to pull or engage to start it. Simply start pedaling the bike and the engine automatically starts effortlessly every time. It is completely foolproof! $1195.00
We decided that this silver moped was too cool to be a 30 mph moped so we “souped it up”, added a larger carb and a mild performance pipe. It now still has all the reliability of a stock engine but this moped tops out at 42 mph! This cruiser has many, many new parts including tires, grips, mirror, high performance cylinder and piston, bearings, seals, expansion chamber exhaust, rebuilt 14mm Bing carburetor, fuel line, brakes and much more! It’s been serviced from front to back and and we’ll back our reliability assurance with our 30 day warranty.
Original matching Puch pannier bags included! Free delivery to the Twin Cities and St Cloud areas (Minnesota, USA)
