Sorry, Darryl, I’ve just seen this.  If only I’d read your post earlier- I’ve just sold the last one at a knock down price of £12 10 shillings, or about 15 Groats where tha’s from.Big smile

I now have a Jawa 210 in the garage as a cheap stop gap but the search goes on for the "Right Moped"

This one stands me at £450 and is mint even for its 28 years but I'm reliably informed by the Ped boys that one ped is never enough.


I seem to have been caught out once before like this with these bloody Guzzi's


George, less of the hilarity and find me a bloody Townmate.

Bloody frustrating, as I know there’s one sitting about 1/4 mile away that will never see the light of day or be used again.
I’ll give the owner a call and see if he’d consider parting with it.
If he weakens, I’ll ask him for a price, but obviously with no obligation to you, Darryl.

A friend of mine lives in France and buys mopeds in France and Italy and sells them in UK. Delivers about twice a year all over UK. I have had three lightweights from him at good prices with no delivery costs. If interested PM me and I will give you contact details. He is English and happy to email photos and details of bikes for sale
Good luck. Lightweights are getting more popular what with increasing prices of classic bikes.

In a moment of blind stupidity I restored an NSU Quickly a few years ago. The intention was to sling it on the back of the Discovery for popping off to the boulangerie for morning baguettes and croissants. It was an interesting restoration and the NSU looked gorgeous with its art deco mudguards etc. However, it was barely able to pull the skin off a crème brûlée so my crafty plan failed and I sold the Quickly through Bonhams - losing in the process (of course).

I like that Ian. How many gears did it have? Thumbs Up

Yes, it's pretty isn't it? 2 gears operated by a scooter-type twistgrip. I never worked out why the "performance" was so poor - initially I thought I'd put the piston in backwards but no.

They never lost the `motor assisted push bike` monica so expectations weren't high with regard to performance, the one I had needed buckets of sweat while pedalling to get it to go, nevertheless a nice looking restoration

Darryl, I’ve just spoken to the owner of the Townmate and as i  expected, he wants to hang on to it.  It’s a great shame that people do this.  It’s a matter of “I won’t ride it, and don’t need it, but you cant buy it”.
There’s one on eBay at the mo ; one bid at £500.
Hope you find one soon.  I’ll put led warning lamps on it for you if you like😎

Another boring fact from the Trojan archive; to follow up on the success of the minimotor, a 2 speed moped with telescopic forks and a torsion type rear suspension was developed, but before it could be launched, along came the NSU Quickly, which wiped it out on price alone.

Thanks George and I really do appreciate the effort that you have made .

Re your offer for the LED lights on any future purchase, again I really do appreciate it but feel that having to wear welding goggles whilst riding in case I need to indicate or switch to high beam could prove to be a major disadvantage.

The cucumber sandwiches are in the post and RLO mentioned sending a long slim parcel down to you.

It's probably either a clothes prop or an ironing board .

My first bike was a NSU Quickly. The guy wanted £1 for it, but as there were three of us, he reduced it to 99p so that we could each have a equal share.

Cheers
