Vintage Mopeds for Sale | Add Restore A Vintage Moped To Your Bucket List


I have recently added, "Restore A Vintage Moped" to my personal online life list of things to do before I die. This has been a goal of mine for many years. In my case it has been the Honda Express NC50 moped that I choose to restore. It really can be any brand of noped, scooter, moped you want. You could choose a Honda, Puch, Tomos, Peugeot, Vespa, or many more. Just purchase a used one for little to no money and begin the amazing process of restoration. There are many websites you can use to purchase a vintage moped for sale and get used moped parts for.

Hey JFK!

First, I'm a newcomer here. All the info is great.

Second, I bought a 1978 NC50 (that runs/ran pretty well) with intentions of restoring it. I've changed out several broken parts already but haven't done anything to the engine (except put that oily-foam thing in the air intake but that was a while ago).

So yesterday I drove my scooter to the bank. It was running great, better than normal in fact. After making my transactions, I go out to start it up again and...nothing. Dead. The spring start will make it turn over but it won't start.

Got it back home (thanks to a kind stranger with a truck) and began my diagnosis. I know it's not the electrical system; the spark plug is sparking just fine. I know it's not the fuel line to the carb, I disconnected that and it pours fuel with no hesitation when the pitcock switch is straight down. I'm guessing it's the carb.

So do you have any idea what it might be?

Matt,

Couple questions to help diagnose:

1. What parts did you replace recently?

2. Is your headlight bulb lit? Any bulbs burnt out?

3. Is the battery new or old? Is it healthy and holding a good charge?

Let's start with that... and go from there.

Replaced fuel line, fuel filter, battery within the past week.

Cleaned engine exterior two weeks ago (but it worked after).

I changed the battery because the lights did not work. However they still do not work. It's mildly frustrating, but I don't have time to mess with it right now (hello spring break project!). Battery is NOT a Honda Express battery or a replacement clone, but it is a 4 week old 6v 2AH Lead Acid battery (the kind you put in a deer stand). Holds a charge great and the horn works loud and clear when the ignition is on.

Fuse is good, bulbs are good (tested with ohm meter).

Oh...something else. Tried to start it again today out of desperation and it fired twice then quit and wouldn't start again. Blah.

Thanks for the help!

Hey I have a question.. So I just bought a honda express II 1979 scooter. I test drove it at the shop and it ran great! But when it came time to take it home the guy said just put it in the back of your car (on its side) to get it home. I noticed the sticker on the back that said Dont tip this bike on its side.. but the guy said it would be fine. Ive waited three days hoping that maybe gas just got up in the cylinder, but its still not starting.. Now im stuck with a bike that wont start.. Please help :(
