1981 Blue Vespa Piaggio Ciao Special (SOLD)


A note from the Detroit Moped Works staff: This moped was listed on our website during the 2020 Covid-19 outbreak. This listing and photographs may reflect some of the limitations we’re facing during this unprecedented time but the same amount of care still goes into each and every moped that enters our shop. In lieu of having a showroom you can visit, we’re doing what we can to bring our showroom to you so you can see what we currently have for sale. If you’re interested in this moped or others, please contact us! Thank you for your continued support.

All vehicles purchased online will be held at our flagship store on Michigan Avenue until the Coronavirus lockdown is lifted.  If it is needed for essential transportation, contact us to arrange curbside pickup or local delivery.

National shipping is available for RESTORED MOPEDS (not new Tomos mopeds).  National shipping can be arranged through U-Ship at the buyer’s expense. We expect it to be $200-$300 depending on location.
