Here is another picture from a different angle. This moped took part in the Athens Classic Rally last week, the poor guy was out of time from the first stage, but didn't give up!
I had neever seen such a bike so I asked the owner for info. Then I searched the net and I could find only one site with a picture, and the bike doesn't have the girder fork like tis example.
BTW I came 2nd in the +35hp category on my R75 at the rally
Andy, these Express mopeds are very nice, there is also a man's and lady's model as I saw!
It's not the same machine though, but you got the engine manufacturer right. The capacity is smaller though.
You can see that the cylinder shape and badging are different.
OK here are some serious hints for you guys
It's a 50cc and it is a late 20s model.
There is very little information on this company. Looks like they were a very famous bicycle maker. From what I can tell they were way ahead of their time and many other manufacturers copied them. I found many mopeds that were made 20 years later that looked identical.
Next time Aris could you make it a little more difficult.
You are right, it is the Goricke moped, with the Sachs 50cc engine and it seems that the Elisabette shown in the link is a little more recent than 'our' moped as it doeasn't use a girder fork.
I wasn't expecting this one to be found, but it seems you looked one by one all the makes using Sachs engines until you got it. This is what I would call 'extremely systematic aproach'
I just had my bike stolen in front of me and I couldn't do anything... :( The thief was too fast and covered in a mask. It's not the first time it happened to me and I'm really pissed o**. So do you know any good GPs devices or protection I could use? Please, let me know.
Hey everybody. So I work for a tow company and we impounded this bike. Employees are allowed to purchase any vehicle that has been sitting at our impound for an extended period of time for $500 flat. It's most likely inoperable as i believe it was abandoned but there is no way to get it checked...
[b]What is the smallest object that has knocked you down in a corner?[b]
This question was suggested by photobug. Thanks for another great question!
I haven't had anything knock me down, but I think sand would definitely do it and that's pretty small!
