1979 Motobecane VLA-2 1979 Motobecane VLA-1

This absolutely beautiful 1979 Moby 50VLA is the second in a series of brand new mopeds that Sunday Morning Motors is offering up for sale. This classic and well-built French beauty sat for decades in the back of an old warehouse, and had never been assembled or started until now. It is not cosmetically perfect due to it sitting unboxed for many years, but the brilliant shiny paint and chrome will overshadow any small flaws. The original tires and grips were replaced with new ones due to natural age deterioration, but other than that, it is 100% original and new.   It doesn’t matter whether you are navigating the city streets of of a big city, climbing the hills of Tennessee, or just cruising a local neighborhood, this moped is the best of the best!

The 50VLA is the top of the line Motobecane 50V series. It has all the same specifications  but with upgraded alloy mag wheels, high-end seat and a beautiful black finish. You can read more about this particular bike’s history here.

1978 Green Maxi Luxe-2 1978 Green Maxi Luxe-1

Reconditioned 1978 Green Puch Maxi Luxe. This moped features a rebuilt high-torque single speed E50 engine, rebuilt wheels, new brakes, new tires and more. We also installed a larger carb, stiffer clutch springs and custom tuned this moped to navigate areas of hillier terrain. This moped is in excellent cosmetic condition and should easily last another 35 plus years with minimal maintenance. $995.00

1979 Gold Maxi II-2 1979 Gold Maxi II-3

A Puch Maxi II moped is in our opinion, the perfect Puch step-thru! You get all the desirable lightweight, functional and dependability features of a Maxi-Luxe but with the added benefit of the 2 speed automatic ZA50 engine! This gold Maxi II was just fully reconditioned from front to back, and now sports a rebuilt high-torque 2 speed engine, rebuilt wheels, new tires, new graphics and many other parts and components. Like every reconditioned moped that leaves our shop, this bike was completely disassembled, and each part right down to the last nut and bolt, was cleaned and polished. Every part was inspected prior to reassembly to better than new specs!  This Puch rides and feels like new with added power to boot!  $1295.00

1980 Copper Moby-2 1980 Copper Moby-1

This is a brand-new 1980 copper 30 mph version Moby 50VLC.  This moped was just started for the first time and runs perfect. Though the original Michelin tires that came on the bike were never used, for safety reasons we installed a set of new, better quality tires.  This moped sat in an old warehouse for 3 1/2 decades, so it is not cosmetically perfect, but it is still beautiful! Rear chrome wheel has some corrosion and the paint has some staining, chipping and minor scratches.  It is not 100% perfect, but how many people can say that they own a new Motobecane that is 36 years old!

1978 Green MaxiLuxe-20  1978 Green MaxiLuxe-21

Here is an absolutely pristine and beautiful Puch step-thru moped that looks like new and runs better than new. This Maxi Luxe was fully restored by Sunday Morning Motors for a customer a few years ago, and received new paint, graphics, tires, rebuilt engine, rebuilt carb, new cables, brakes and more. It was babied and treasured and  gently ridden less than 300 miles since then. It is now back in our inventory and awaits a new home. (more…)

1979 Magnum MKII-2 1979 Magnum MKII-1

Puch Magnums have always topped the lists of desirable mopeds and the 1979 MKII is what keeps it on that list. Hydraulic suspension, oil injection and a automatic 2 speed gives this bike the ability to be enjoyed by everyone from the budget conscience college kid trying to make it around campus to the demanding business executive who needs to navigate the downtown traffic.

1979 Silver Puch Maxi-21979 Silver Puch Maxi-1

This bike started out as a base model Silver Maxi  We gave it a complete reconditioning from front axle to rear taillight, and the result was a nice moped that will take you anywhere you want to go. This moped has a professionally rebuilt engine, carburetor,  wheels, ignition and electrical system. We also upgraded the saddle seat and rack to a sport seat and rack and capped it all off with meticulous polishing.  This great looking  Puch is a reliable moped that will last another 35 years!  $995.00

1980 Puch UPS Magnum-2 1980 Puch UPS Magnum-1

This fully reconditioned Puch “UPS” Magnum MKII is beautifully awesome and would look equally great sitting in a museum or parked outside an old North Carolina backwoods hamburger stand. Though it no longer has the factory turn signals installed, the wiring harness is uncut and fully intact so a set could be installed sometime down the road. It is all original, but we have rebuilt or refurbished every moving mechanical part on this bike including the ZA50 2 speed engine, wheel hubs and brakes and carb.  We also installed a new pair of durable Michelin Gazelle tires  and then meticulously polished every part on the bike right down to the hardware. The paint is also original and if it wasn’t for a few chips here and there, you would be convinced that we repainted it. You will have to decide what sparkles more when you are out riding, the metallic paint or your teeth ! (more…)

1960 Motobecane Special-1 1960 Motobecane Special-2

This 1962 French Motobecane Speciale (SPR) moped would make an excellent restoration project. The designation SPR stands for Speciale-Road and features an extra large 8 liter gas tank, full length seat and folding rear passenger footrests and styling you just can’t find on very many vintage European mopeds.  It is missing a some pieces including the lower covers. What is there is in good to excellent condition including the gas tank, wheels, seat, tail and headlight, handlebars, controls, etc. The right hand pedal crank has been welded to the pedal so it will need to be replaced. Most of the chrome is in good and presentable condition but it will not polish to show condition without replating. The AV88 engine does run strong and idle smoothly but the original Gurtner carb has been replaced with a Mikuni. The previous owner claimed a top speed of close to 40 mph but we are unable to test ride the bike due to flat and worn out tires. The transmission variator and belt pulley move smoothly and operate as was intended. This Builders Stock moped will take some time and parts to get it back on the road again but could easily become someones prized possession.

This project moped is being sold as-is without any implied warranty or guarantee. Local delivery available for an additional fee. $849.00

Vintage Mopeds-2 Vintage Mopeds-1

Puch Magnum MKII mopeds are a large top-tank style moped, but ride more like a small motorcycle. Hydraulic forks and shocks make this a good choice for longer rides. MKII mopeds also have a 2 speed fully automatic transmission, so it is also an  excellent choice for heavier riders or riders who reside or commute in hillier areas. The engine is very up-gradable and can be modified for more speed or power with some basic mechanical ability.

This particular moped has been reconditioned from front to back, including a professionally rebuilt engine/transmission. This moped includes free local delivery, warranty and guaranteed endless fun! Contact us today to reserve this great bike, or you can purchase it here now. $1695.00
