$1700 on the craigslist. See?

“Kevin Rose’s moped is back up for sale. 2nd@1977mopeds build I’ve seen on SF craigslist this week. Very nice bike.”

Anyway, it runs, or at least it was running about town last week.

Here’s the history on YouTube - start at around 4:00.

Fully Loaded 1977 Puch Maxi Moped – $1700 (mission district)

I am selling the 1977 Puch Maxi moped featured in this blog post: http://jalopnik.com/5481416/dont-bury-kevin-roses-custom-moped

It has been fully restored. It hasn’t been driven much, but the pedals were swapped out for pegs. I still have them if you’re interested in them instead.

Asking $1700 OBO.

Thanks!

Remember the 1970′s? Well, I can’t claim ignorance of that particular decade, but nevertheless I was shocked upon first seeing this official SFPD photo of two of their officers zipping northward on official SFPD-issue mopeds.

See their nightsticks?

Hey, maybe the Motor Division would like to trade in their Harleys and BMWs for something sassy like this sexy little Yamaha Riva, or something.

Wonder what the union would think of that?
