Chongqing JT50A (Best Chinese Honda PA50 Clone) from private collection – as is (SOLD)


This thing is seriously the best! Not only is charismatically styled but it has tons of storage and it works exceptionally well. If the gas is on and you push it like 2 feet slowly it starts right up. I’ve never seen a moped that starts this easily. You’ll start it by accident. Also, apparently this moped was engineered with no regard for the 30 mph moped laws in the US. With the tires filled to 40psi, wound out on a long stretch in a tuck, it GPS’d in at 38mph! I purchased it with 40 miles on it and now it has 70 miles on it. 

When the opportunity to buy this interesting low miles bike came up, I jumped on it. I had 30 miles of fun with it, and purchased new turn signals which I never installed but will include with the sale… then, like many of my mopeds, I put it on display in the front window for a few seasons, and then moved it to storage for a few years. I think it’s time for someone new to own this bike and get it back on the road. As we didn’t build or even service this bike, we are not going to warranty it. But it does not seem deficient in any way. If you want us to, we can negotiate a price for tune up and final review to sell the bike with a warranty.

About selling “as is” 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.
