Want to buy a Yamaha Razz? Need your Burgman repaired? Looking for a custom scooter build? Trying to find parts for your Chinese scooter? It’s a good news / bad news kind of thing. Bad news first:

We don’t work on scooters.

Many people use the words “moped” and “scooter” interchangeably but they are actually two different things.

Scooter Versus Moped

A scooter:

  • is ridden like sitting on a toilet with feet placed in front

A moped:

  • is (or originally was) 50cc
  • has (or originally had) pedals
  • has an automatic transmission
  • is designed for public roads
  • is ridden with legs placed on either side of the frame, like a bicycle or motorcycle
