Minarelli V1 AMF Roadmaster from private collection – as is (SOLD)


This is one of the coolest looking mopeds out there aesthetically in all original condition. A friend built it with an 80cc Polini cylinder, Dellorto 15 SHA carburetor, and MLM Proma Circuit exhaust. The seat has been swapped for a seat from a mid-80’s Puch Maxi Sport LS2. I rode it one time a bit over a year ago and fell in love. The performance parts seemed installed and tuned perfectly with strong smooth power throughout. When the opportunity to buy this bike came up, I jumped on it… then like many of my mopeds, I put it on display in the front window for a bit, 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. As we didn’t build or even service this bike, we are not going to warranty it, but it does not really 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.
