tempting!
Wild guess: An old Lambretta moped of some sort?
Good thing it's not local for 200 bucks, that thing is kinda cute!

Never got into mopeds much. They are slow, the brakes barely work....oh wait, that's kinda like many of the Vespas I had and currently own. Never mind...

I heard those tires are a royal PIA to fix, this true?
Before I plunk down that kinda loot I wanna check out all the details first, and then clik 'Buy Me Now"!

And now I suppose those huge damn tires are gonna be painfully spendy as well?

The last time i bought tires and tubes for one of my mopeds (10 years ago?), tires were readily available pretty much anywhere. Lots of brands were available too. At that time they costed about the same as a quality 3.5x10 tire.

Gee thanks, that helps, but you forgot to tell me what a cinch they probably are to change.

Split rims of course?

Can I get tubeless for safety if one happens to blow?

Why would that be? Ever change tires on a bike?

Of course, I was just funning and bitching about the sad lack of split rims.
