WTB a moped (aka piglet). My new running around, partying, fishing group is starting a moped mafia so i need to find one. I told them i had two but they ruled me out and said the hogs were to many cc's.

Anything below 150cc is the rule, hope 50 cc can pull my big ass now.

Anyways, it needs to run but doesn't have to be pretty.

I have no clue about this new brotherhood im getting into. I asked " what the hell y'all gonna do with the mopeds?" Answer was " ride around and terrorize the mountain" :ROFLMAO:

Bunch of hillbillies in coverall bibs im sure is not about to set terror in mountain folk, especially 50+ yr old farts.

Let me know please what you or your family/neighbors have.

Years ago while in the Army, a dozen of us left Ft Useless( Eustis) on Harleys, headed to an ABATE meeting at the Thirsty Camel on Willoughby Spit in Norfolk. It was early spring, low 40s so everyone is in old school leather biker jackets. Part of us are in chaps ( I was because I had just returned from Panama Canal 2 months prior)...all wearing half shells, leather gloves. We had 2 dressers, several Sporties, 3 Wide Glides, 3 Super Glides and I'm on my rigid shovelhead. We're all in the left lane at a red light.

Kid pulls up in the right lane on a moped. Leather jeans, black leather jacket with metal studs all over it in some pattern only he understands, 3/4 bucket with plastic face shield...Deadhead skull stickers on both sides of his helmet.
He starts screaming " bikers rule" and does a closed fist in the air thing...screaming so much he fogged his face shield up and had to pull off to wipe the fog off it.

We were still laughing when we got to Norfolk.

I'd have never seen the Thirsty Camel turning into a gay bar. It was a Navy watering hole for Norfolk...and more than a few SEALs drank there.

I went on Google Earth not long ago and didn't recognize Denbigh...nor over in Va Beach where I lived.

Maybe it was a different bar. The one im thinking of was in Oceanview on the water side. This was in the mid 80s.. 85-86 time frame.

That sounds like fun. I was in Panama City a couple of years ago and Thunder Beach happened to be going on. I stopped at a tent on Highway 98 that had a bunch of vintage motorcycles displayed and a sign that said something like “Vintage Japanese Motorcycle Club”.
I was really enjoying looking at the ‘70s Yamaha 175s & 250s, Honda 90s, etc.
I got to talking to a club member and he said they all get together and ride pretty often. Most of them have the smaller bikes popular in the ‘60s and ‘70s. That would be a blast.
I rode a 1969 Honda CB175 for a while in college until I could save up enough for a car.
On a side note, that new Honda 125 Cub looks fun.
