Hi there and welcome to this listing for an east german built simson s51 moped. This is the 2nd Simson that i have owned with the unusual thing being that when i purchased the bike. it was actually still in it's original wooden box crate which it had evidently been in from new. with even the footrests still tied to the framed as they had not yet been attached. Hence the bike having only been used for a number of months has little over 100 minles on the clock from memory.  So. back in June 2011. i had been looking for another simson when i see this one come up decided to take the plunge. It had a few corroded chrome pars such as silencer and downpipe but it was all really cosmetic and i decided to replace several with new bits from a company called AKF in Germany.  This simson was MOT'd in September 2011 and used briefly before it developed an apparent gearbox adjustment or selection problem. To this date I do not know what has caused this or hot to remedy it but the bike is now only selecting 1 or 2 gears. Otherwise. it has the later electronic ignition instead of points and will run without battery (i do have a battery which had bought online but guessing that it will be flat just now.  This is a relatively unused bike so once the gearbox is sorted. it will be a real gem.  I sadly have no time or inclination for a project at the moment hence why i am offering the simson for sale.  I paid and have a receipt for ??350 for the moped and a further ??250 pound or thereabouts on parts (receipted)which have replaced older perished items.  Simson S51Sports time moped1 owner from new 2 brand new sports tyres on wheels with inner tubesNew down pipe and silencer in excellent considionVarious new consumablesSome small areas that need attention are:Puncture to rear inner tube whcich happened when i was changing the tyreGearbox only selecting 1 gearMinor corision on frame but overall a ver solid little bike Engine ticks over and sometimes stalls but think that it just adjustmentRev counter cable was caught in the headstock so does not work but the cables are readily available onlineNO MOT or TAXSmall alloy bracket half for front mudguard came off on the road as is had been silly enough to forget to put the nut on the bold holding it together (this is an easy fix)The bike although not on the road had been used to store a private number plate which has since been transfered meaning that a new plate will need to be made up. sometime.  If you have any questions. please do not hesitate to askCash on collection only (i am based just 5 minutes from Glasgow airport)
