This particular green 1978 Sachs Westlake bike was just fully reconditioned and is ready to ride.  The single speed high-output 504-1C moped engine and carb were professionally rebuilt but the reconditioning process didn’t stop there.  The ignition system was tested, timed and adjusted and new parts installed. The wheels were rebuilt with new axles, bearings and brakes and of course we installed a new quality set of IRC 17″ x 2.25″ tires. The speedometer was serviced and the odometer reset back to zero miles.  Cables, controls and chains were all cleaned, lubed, serviced and adjusted and the entire electrical system was also inspected and tested with all new bulbs being installed. We topped it all off with some new grips,  a couple of new decals and a lot of polishing.  For only $925.00, this green machine comes with a 30 day warranty and free delivery within the Minneapolis/St Paul/St Cloud metro areas.

The Westlake is a quality built Sachs model and was produced in West Germany in a partnership with the DKW/Hercules Co. who supplied the well engineer chassis and assembled the bikes along with other models like the Balboa, Suburban, Prima and G3. Though the Sachs 505 and 504 series engines were supplied to many manufacturers for use in their own mopeds, only a few models are considered “true” Sachs and were produced 100% in former West Germany and bared the Sachs name on the sides of the tank. Many other bikes were fitted with the reliable Sachs engines but were produced and imported from Taiwan and did not meet or carry the same quality standards as the Sachs label.
