Custom Yamaha Chappy 80 from private collection – as is


This was a great running original 80cc 2 speed automatic noped with a super cool dealer accessory passenger seat. We lent it to Motion left Mopeds, where they used it to design their full line of Chappy products. We installed their front rack, Mikuni 20mm intake, Mikuni VM20 carb, and their People’s Pipe. The bike was so strong that we purchased a smaller rear gear which got the bike into the 50mph range. With all of that speed; we installed the brand new whitewall tires.   

We built and tested this when it was snowing, so I never put more than 5 miles on it tops. 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. I think it’s time for someone new to own this bike and get it back on the road. Besides not having been started in a few years, we have since sold the People’s Pipe. With this sale, I’ll include the upgraded MLM Yamaha kickstart LB80 Chappy Scorpion pipe ($235) , MLM Yamaha Chappy LB80 steel foot pegs with side stand mount ($52.99), and MLM Yamaha Chappy LB80 side stand ($19.99).

As the bike has not been started in years, and will need a new pipe installed and carb tuned accordingly, we are not going to warranty it. It is a great value for the bike and parts, and should be an easy project to finish. 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.  

Payments accepted: Cash, Credit/Debit card, or PayPal.
