I have the chance to buy at auction two 1981 Vespa Grande mopeds. The description only says: "Red & blue, runs & looks great, very low miles."
What bidding max would I be looking at, depending on condition, of course.

Thanks much,

Bruce

Bruce,

Personally I'd offer around $500-$600 for the two of them. Perhaps more, if I really wanted them and had no luck whatsoever finding anything locally.

Few of things to keep in mind:
1) You are taking a gamble, since there's no way for you to verify the "they run great" claim. Unless you're
technically inclined yourself, finding a place to fix up a moped can be quite a challenge.

2) Do you really need both bikes?

3) Ask the seller how much the shipping costs would be.

Good luck,

Andy

Depending on the model (Standard or deluxe with turn signals or oil injected model) they can go for up to about $900. Most Grandes go for around $500-$700 in excellent condition.

Price epends on location, the season, and if the seller will crate and ship
Happy Trails

Yeah, I probably wouldn't plunk down more than $600 for one, but then again, I'm a total cheapskate.

Thanks for your imput, guys.

Shipping is no problem, since the auction is only about a 1.5 hour drive away. Was thinking
of buying both if the price is right and maybe selling one.
