Rare 65cc Puch Korado from private collection – as is

Original price was: $1,500.00.Current price is: $1,200.00.

We got this bike in parts then built it… Mostly… This large tube frame Korado moped with 16 inch mag wheels and large port motor was always a dream of mine. When I bought it, it had the motor mounts reinforced as a precautionary measure, and raw cases. We built the motor with a new needle bearing crankshaft, Puch 65cc 43.5mm Hero massive port kit, new old stock Hero 65cc head, new old stock Puch Ducati CDI ignition, MLM Puch Hero pipe, MLM Puch Hero intake, and Mikuni 18mm carb. After the bike was built, it was super strong!  We were tuning the carb and clutch bushing seized up. 

The transmission was taken apart and never re-assembled. 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. All of the new parts probably have like 10 miles on them. I know that there is a toggle kill switch under the seat, I don’t recall if we ever wired the lights. My loss, your gain. As the bike stopped running then has sat untouched for like 2 years, we are not going to warranty it; but for someone who knows how to build and tune Puchs, the bike should be awesome.

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.
