    For a moped that is almost 30 years old it was in fair nick and ran well. A good price at $400 but there was a catch: By mistake it has been registered as a motorcycle and in Iowa I don't think it reversible unless the manufacturers certificate of origin states it is limited to 30mph. Pity.

    ...there was minor damage to the right foot-peg, rear right indicator, saddle and the handlebars were out of allignment. The tank was rust-free but the head was quite rusted.

    I guess $400 is reasonable if you're doing a restoration. But it sounds high to me for a play bike or such.
