Here is an excellent reconditioned German made traditional step-thru moped. It is a true Sachs which means that the entire bike, chassis and engine, were manufactured in former West Germany. The uniqueness of this moped is that it is powered by a Sachs 505-1D engine which was more commonly found in sportier top-tank models like the Prima G3. In its stock state, it will run strongly at 30 mph all day long but has the capability of speeds over 40 mph with minimal enhancements.

We’ve rebuilt the engine and carb, installed new tires and brakes and then serviced this moped from front to back while replacing or repairing many parts along the way. Sachs engines are very, very reliable and start effortlessly every time.  30 day warranty on the engine and free delivery to the Mpls/St Paul/St Cloud area and their suburbs. $925.00
