Sale!

1980 AMF Roadmaster project – as is (SOLD)

$400.00 $320.00

We previously refurbished this moped with a tune up, new tires, tubes, and everything working. It went 23mph, the fastest roadmaster we have seen! We sold it to a woman who enjoyed riding it for 2 years then traded it in for an even faster-er moped. She even rode it in to the shop the day she traded up!  We parked it in our display window with the intention of preparing it for resale but we never did. We have since broken the tail light cover and sold a portion of the air box… whom whomp… 

No warranty on as is mopeds.

All vehicles purchased online will be held at our flagship store on Michigan Avenue.

Pick up appointments can be made through the Facebook scheduler.  

National shipping can be arranged through U-Ship at the buyer’s expense. We expect it to be $200-$300 depending on location.

Description

About selling “as is” project mopeds in 2020:

Detroit Moped Works has always felt confident profiting from our wonderful work, selling refurbished or rebuilt mopeds that we could stand behind and sell with a warranty.  

As a matter of principle, Detroit Moped Works has always been opposed to “flipping” mopeds, or making money off of selling non-running mopeds, project mopeds, parts mopeds, and/or “as is” mopeds. 

That said, due to what the media refers to as “these strange times” we are not able to get bikes built for sale this season. Further, we are repeatedly seeing “as is” mopeds selling on the peer to peer market for 2-3 times what we consider “Normal Market Rate.” For these two reasons we have decided to get some projects out of our shop and in the hands of folks who can hopefully get more bikes on the road.

Most of these mopeds will be priced above what we consider “normal market rate,’ but below the high prices we are seeing as the “new normal.” In the time honored tradition of “flipping,” we will be giving the most brief description possible, not promising anything of the individual vehicles, but promising you that you will have a wonderful time working on and learning about your new toy motorcycle! Or maybe it just sits as wonderful decor in your Man Cave or She Shed. Once you buy it, it is out of our hands and yours to enjoy!  

Prices are firm / sales are final / bikes are as is. 

Pick up appointments can be made through the Facebook scheduler.
