Sexy, beautiful and an absolutely perfect custom Puch Magnum that will take your breath away. This is one bike that really needs to be seen in person to really appreciate all the craftsmanship that was put into it’s creation. Stunning white reflective paint sparkles under the sun. Shiny bits of chrome and polished aluminum are well balanced against the satin black frame and wheels. The fully rebuilt engine was modified to be every bit as reliable as a stock moped, but with performance enhancements that will allow you to cruise all day long over 40mph. This custom vintage moped loves to be looked at almost as much as it likes to be ridden.
The custom built Puch started out as a commissioned project by a young local woman from the Minneapolis area. She sent us the barn fresh Magnum XK, and together we started working on plans for her ultimate dream moped that could keep up with her professional bicycle racing boyfriend. After many months of planning and accumulating parts, we began to build “Casper“. Shortly after we began the build, she was involved in a terrible accident that left her unable to ride again, at least in the foreseeable future. We purchased the uncompleted project from her, and decided to finish what we started.
This wonderful Puch “Casper” is available now if you would like to purchase it. It is a titled moped that can be shipped anywhere in the continental US. Contact us for more information or purchase it now here. 30 day warranty on the entire bike and free delivery within the Minneapolis, St Paul or St Cloud areas. $2650.00

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.
This Lucer 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.

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.

The bike comes with a full warranty and free delivery within 100 miles of the Minneapolis area. New title, current tabs and less than 50 miles on the odometer!

Everything about this unique vintage moped is sheer awesomeness. When you sit on it for the first time, your eyes examine the components and controls that are polished to a mirror-like finish. Everything is tight and fully functional. The windshield can be removed in a matter of seconds but you have already decided to leave it always attached. The original blinker system that was offered as an option in 1978 has been fully rebuilt as well and you move the directional switch back and forth testing out the blinkers as kind of a pre-ride safety inspection.
Okay, you didn’t come to just sit on it with a big grin making imaginary motor sounds under your breath; you came to ride it! You release the parking brake and give the trike a couple of cranks with the pedals and pull in the starter clutch. The moped comes to life and you are off into the wind leaving the world behind. As you quickly get up to around 15 mph, you hear the engine effortlessly shift into 2nd gear and now the adrenaline starts flowing! This is so much fun and not what you were imagining the ride to be like. The TriRad is very smooth and much more powerful than the old moped you had as a kid.
The engine was fully rebuilt with mild modifications made to accommodate the heavier bike but without any added noise levels or the diminishing of reliability. It climbs hills with ease and keeps up with traffic on the city streets.
There is a small learning curve when riding a motorized trike for the first time. You steer it more like a car as opposed to leaning like a bicycle when cornering. You slow down and shift your body weight into the curve. Once you are through the curve, you twist the throttle again and the TriRad is quickly once again climbing past 30 mph!
The suspension adequately absorbs all the little bumps you encounter but you probably wouldn’t have noticed even if it hadn’t; you were just too busy waving at everyone that you encountered while on your test ride. You signal your final turn back into the parking lot here and toot the horn in approval as you bring the moped to a gentle stop and turn the ignition switch off. Absolutely AMAZING!
We also have a red TriRad that will be restored if blue just doesn’t do it for you!
Beautiful and hard to find “eggplant” Maxi-luxe that has just been fully serviced and is now looking for a new home. Completely stock and original, this moped is in amazing condition and runs like it did when it came off the factory over 35 years ago!
