Detroit Moped Works – Repair, customization and sale of vintage two stroke mopeds

When our passion for the hobby got a little out of control, we decided to make a business of it.

Detroit Moped Works provides a full range of services including sales, repair, and enhancement of two stroke mopeds. We are southeast Michigan’s only shop dedicated to two stroke mopeds like Puch, Tomos, Motobecane, Peugeot, Vespa, Sachs, and Minarelli – as well as many others! We build mopeds to sell and will work with you to create the customization you’re looking for. We keep a variety of parts including seats, tires and tubes, exhaust pipes, cables and spark plugs in stock. If you are looking to do your own work, we can help you find the right parts to make your restoration projects more fun and less of a hassle. Our goal is to get more people out riding and enjoying mopeds. Stop by our shop and see what we can make happen for you!





Preview our selection of mopeds for sale and pick out the perfect one for you!
