Would you imagine that the rust on this moped would render it unservicable?

I really want a vintage moped and this is by far the cheapest. It is however rather rusty. Do you think it would be beyond repair if I bought it?

    you do know most homes around london have got one just like that in the back garden dont ya ?

    its not beyond repair just needs alot of work

    at the moment yes. but with a lot of t l c i would thunk you could get it on the road maybe in a yr.

    It is not beyond repair but you have a lot of work ahead if you want to get it. Can be fun if you are into a long restore job.There are good rust clean up and restore products on the Internet.
    Good luck

    It is not beyond repair if you have either:

    a) Lots of experience in motorcycle restoration
    or
    b) Lots of money
    or
    c) Both of the above.

    It would cost more to repair than buying a good second-hand moped. (£400-500)

    Nothing’s impossible, given time, money & effort. It’s not something you could expect to ride soon, but it looks like it would be a good project to get stuck into. I’d be interested myself if I had room in the workshop, should keep me busy all winter! It IS a workshop job, not something you can do in the back garden.

    By the look of this bike, I would say its a complete bare metal rebuild. I think you will have problems getting spares for it and if its your first project I would suggest looking for something easier to start with.
    Ja.
