Sachs Westlake

See my pretty little moped. Jealous? I think you are.

New things on the to-do list:
Make him street legal... title, registration, insurance.
Buy a helmet and riding gloves.
Buy a banana style seat.
Buy 2 stroke oil, a gas can and a mixing cup.

The Portland division of MopedArmy hooked me up. Yay!

i used two stroke oil for my lawn mower. i just got a 2 gallon gas tank and the two stroke oil is usually one can to two gallons. instead of having to measure out each filling of the gas tank and ratio from gas to oil.
i might have just miss understood what you were doing.

why a moped vs. a scooter? the additional geek factor? i'm curious because i want something like this too.

I love the additional geek factor, yes. But it helps that you don't have to have a motorcycle endorsement on your license to ride a moped. And that they are so cute and little and don't have all the "scene points" that scooters have, or the penis points that motorcycles have. And I bought my moped for $300! It's got a sense of humor. And it's mechanically not as complicated as a moped or scooter, little 2 strokes are easy for a beginning mechanic to maintain. But really, I don't know. I was at the scooter bar one night when some moped kids came out, and I fell in love immediately...
