Deal on Tomos Targa

Postby Breaze » Tue Nov 25, 2008 10:35 am

Hi all,
I am new to the moped arena having just picked up a 1981 Honda Express as a project, but I am definitely getting the bug.

Just saw a deal on Craig's list that I was hoping for some feedback on (goo/bad deal, things to watch for, etc.). I had read on one of the forums that Tomos was a good brand to start out with - attached is the picture in the add.

It recently went down from $400.00 to $275.00 - very little info is offered about the model, year, etc.

Any suggestions about what to ask if and when I call?

The ad says: Tomos Targa Moped, good condition,low miles. Must sell $275/o.b.o. Serious inq. only, please. Call 770-439-4337

If it is all there and it runs it is a good deal.. Parts are available and not expensive.

For NJ that would be a steal especially if it's running.

Looks like about 1995-6 Tomos. side covers missing, might be the metal ones on that bike. If tank clean and it kicks over I would jump its bones for that price. Don't see many white with that green striping. Does it have paperwork to go with it, if not knock some more $$ off.

You can't go wrong at that price.

I'd buy it in a minute.

Holy crap! That was my first moped!!!
that guy didn't buy it, I DID.
since then i've been really damned hooked.

actually full story I got so fed up with cleaning the carb (never put a fuel filter in line - NEWB) that i sold it
missed it alot though and bought a supercub a month later and have since had probably close to 50 mopeds...
