I won the junkyard Lottery!!!
« on: November 21, 2009, 08:21:09 pm »
Kevin and I went to hiway 50 cycles, busted ass motorcycle junk yard, to pick a benelli 125 he found on ebay. Well, when we got there we see this.


I ask the guy how much he want's for it, he goes "That Chinese junk? $undisclosed takes it home" So I got a Derbi Gpr 50 for $undisclosed.

I win the junk yard lottery.

Ha, didn't even notice floyd in the back ground. I'm torn whether I want to use the awesome parts for a moped or just build this thing back to it's former glory. It would make a sweet daily cruiser.

Awesome. How many CCs?

I think you should build it back to original.

cool find. I think you should use it for parts on a race moped.

Right on!!  Plenty of good parts on there.  Do the forks have any external compression or rebound control?
