Calling all moped people, the time has come! Memphis is having our first ever moped rally and we want YOU to be there!!! April 24th-26th. Come join us for a weekend of blues and booze and donít forget your dancing shoes. You snooze, you lose. Come find out why we affectionately call it the Dirty South.

Housing will be provided for the most part. I have a small unfurnished apartment upstairs from my house where plenty of people can sleep, bring a sleeping bag and be prepared to get familiar with your neighbor. Ryan and JR have a BIG backyard with plenty of room to pitch a tent if youíre into that kind of thing, we all know good things happen in tents. Or sleep in your car, that works too. If hotels are more your style, let us know and weíll pass some info along to ya.

Saturdayís ride will be a long one so make sure to tune your bike. There will be a chase vehicle Saturday and most likely Sunday just in case you break your moped. Bring your helmet because itís the law and Memphis drivers suck and bring a lock because, well, it is the Dirty South.

So whatís going down, you ask? WellÖ.

Arrive in Memphis. Check-in starts at 3:00pm at the Slider Inn (2117 Peabody Ave.) Get your rally pack and find out where youíre staying. Grab a bite to eat or a beer at Slider if you like, get settled into housing, fix your bike, explore the area, do your thing. At 6:00pm there will be a poker ride tour of a few of the local breweries, get a card at each stop, best hand wins a $50 gift certificate to Treats. End back at Sliderís for more schmooziní and booziní. At some point you should probably get some sleep, itís a long ride tomorrow. Or donít, I ainít your daddy.

Wake up and shake off that hangover. Your host will have some bagels and juice for you or you can try your hand at one of the many awesome local eateries, weíll give you a map. Meet up at Overton Park at 11:00am and mingle with all your moped buddies for an hour, the ride wonít leave until 12:00pm. Itís gonna be a long ride (~65 miles) through Shelby Forest, then along the banks of the Mississippi, through the ghetto, and then back into Midtown. The ride will end at Sliderís. Go back to the house and unwind for a bit and then choose your own adventure for dinner. At 8:00pm weíll meet up the Young Ave. Deli. Grab a beer, get loose, and enjoy some blues by the Cedric Burnside Project. Dance your butt off, play some fooseball, get krunk. Party like thereís no tomorrow. We own this town.

Why did we party like thereís no tomorrow? Oh well, too late. Grab some more bagels and juice, hydration is key. Pack your shit and go home or stay longer, weíve grown quite fond of you at this point. Sunday ride is a historical places ride (~26 miles) with a midway stop for brunch at Gusí Fried Chicken. Get back, decide what you want to do. If you want stay longer than Sunday we have to charge rent. Kisses, bitches, itís been a blast.

bring me a moped from columbia to memphis and i'll give you $60 cash and a hobbit that needs a little work to run, but should run within a day or two.

seriously.  you have to take back a mb5 to columbia as well.

memphis is around 5 1/2 hours from columbia.

Bartertown / Derbi Revolution
« on: July 25, 2014, 07:40:24 PM »
I don't have a job and want money, but I also want a moped soooo...

$1500 takes it.

or $1000 and a nice pinto/free spirit/magnum

Derbi Revolution w/Start 5 (kick start flat reed) motor:

* Rebuilt bottom end with Nachi/SKF bearings
* Rebuilt crank from Mr. Crankshaft + new malossi small end bearing
* Metrakit cylinder w/piston that I cut boost ports into to match the cylinder
* Motomatic race pipe
* Lomat intake w/vforce reeds and tm24 carb
* Lusito throttle and right hand brake lever (front brake)
* Stock Pirelli tires still in good shape
* Polini variator
* 2k contra spring
* Artek K2 clutch with white "sport" clutch springs and "cooling hole" cut into kickstart cover to cool the stock clutch bell down


* A small chunk of rear fender is missing from my buddy falling off his board and it hitting the fender
* I removed the front headlight w/fairing (and sold it) and made some little brackets to use a normal CEV headlight. Makes things much simpler, and it kind of looks like a Ciao now.
* All plastics besides the front fairing come with it, except the oil tank cover, I don't have that one anymore.

What it needs:

* Nothing, or an HPI I guess. But you'd have to modify it to fit.

We are leaving from DEK house at 8am on Sunday to meet up with the Holy Rollers for their weekly Sunday ride.  We will be back by 5pm that day.

If you are interested post up.  I can potentially drive my blazer and 5 bikes in Drews truck plus one in mine if we have enough people.

Local Discussion (MidMopeds) / denver rally
« on: June 01, 2014, 10:55:25 PM »
it's in two weeks! we need to figure out when we are leaving, who's going, and what vehicles are going. 

beke --- you said you were driving your van? if that's the case then I would like to ride in your van.  when are you leaving and coming back? I can definitely pitch in on gas.  I know Drew was talking about wanting to go, and maybe driving his truck but he's on the fence.  Is anyone else interested in going? Gas is going to cost about $115-$150 one way so you're looking at $75-$100 per person depending on how many people go.

I would like to not have to drive by myself because it's going to cost me $250 round trip... plus, it'll be much more fun to ride with other people and party with ya'll in Denver.

sounds like the van and trailer is leaving friday around 4pm from the shop for st. louis.  If you plan on attending and riding in the van or bringing your bike with the van, you need to show up at the shop and be ready.

Local Discussion (MidMopeds) / anyone got a jack I can borrow?

I need a nice 3ton jack so that I can replace the tie rod end on my blazer.  the jack I have kinda sucks and doesn't really get the car far enough in the air to take the wheel off easily.

looking to borrow it this weekend, so I can use it on monday.
