The time has come for Margo to move on to a new home. This beautiful retro scooter is a pleasure to ride. The FZ50's are classed as the Rolls Royce of mopeds. She is good starter in any weather. runs smooth and gets to about 45mph max. but has been in storage for a couple of years so currently runs a bit smokey. Margo is registered as off road solely because I was working in London and wasn't using her. She has been happily stored in my studio. but as I need the space. I am now looking for some other eccentric to give her a good home and get some wind blowing back through her cables again. There is some slight damage to be mentioned. These have all been photographed. Two bolts of the rear carrier rack are missing. One is broken and may need re tapping. but as you can see in the photo. I have simply tied it on with wire and it is barely noticeable. There is a small crack in the plastic. again. it is hardly noticeable. And finally the fuel gauge has clouded up which unfortunately is common with this design of gauge. The tank can be replaced but I have coped ok as you can just about see through it so it is still usable. She has just had new front brake pads fitted. also a new front mud guard. She is in brilliant condition given her age. It is hard to tell you how many miles she has done as there are only 4 digits to the mileage count. so not sure how many times it has gone round. It currently says only 189miles. but this for sure isn't correct. She has an air-cooled 49 cc 1-cylinder. 2-stroke engine with an automatic. 2-speed transmissionThe Second gear engages at about 10mphShe has the power of about 3. 2 horses. Margo is a stunning looking scooter. She has been on numerous photoshoots and been appreciated by many. (Some of the photos are shown here - Please note. the green box on the back has now been taken off)Spring is coming which will shortly be followed by summer. A lovely couple of seasons to be out adventuring on this enjoyable retro classic beauty. Best of luck with your biddingBuyer must collect from Chatham. Kent.
