I love vintage parts.....

Postby mopedlar » Tue Oct 29, 2013 11:21 am

Bought this '70's vintage drive chain off ebay for $10 shipped. I'm a sucker for '70's moped graphics.

I couldn't save the packaging, but I found a neat NOS moped tachometer from the 70's.

Yeah I agree. It's cool to trip across NOS stuff. When I was restoring my May '64 built mustang cvt, I searched and collected parts, many of them NOS w/packaging. In the end, I stored them and put re-pop parts on the mustang. Many of these parts were very well reproduced, 10 years ago. Today the quality has deteriorated a little.

That's because most of the re-popped parts come from China.
