This is a very nice original 2 owner Yamaha SS 50 German model so no pedals. The moped is in beautiful original condition and has never been restored . remember they are only original once ! it has had just 2 older gentlemen owners so it has not been abused like most have . the tank is very clean inside . starts first kick and sounds sweet with no knocks or rattles and everything works has it should . the moped will need a new battery . it still has its original tool kit which is complete . how rare is that ?  the moped has covered just 4877 km's which calculates to an incredibly low 3048 miles in its 40 year life . The chrome is very nice as is the paint but it does have some marks as to be expected after 40 years . Engine and frame numbers match . This fizzy is a beautiful original bike but its not new so please remember its 40 years old and has some age related marks . The fizzy is on the DVLA's Nova database with no VAT to pay . I have a dvla letter in hand that states this . I also have the original German log book and handbook . nbsp; it will be easy to register the bike at a cost of ?55 once you have put an M. O. T on it and you will be the first UK registered owner . The moped can be collected from PE22 8JD . There is no reserve and no buy it now . Happy bidding but  PLEASE ONLY BID ON THIS MOPED IF YOU HAVE THE FUNDS AND YOU INTEND TO COLLECT THE BIKE . I AM HAPPY TO WORK WITH YOUR OWN COURIER . THE MOPED WILL ONLY BE RELEASED AFTER I HAVE CLEARED FUNDS . I WILL REQUIRE A NON REFUNDABLE DEPOSIT OF ?100 PAID AT THE END OF THE AUCTION . PAID BY BANK TRANSFER OR PAYPAL . THE BALANCE TO BE PAID WITHIN ONE WEEK . I AM FLEXIBLE ON COLLECTION .

Just started it today and it has developed a misfire so I think it has picked up some sediment from the bottom of the tanks so the carb will need taking off and cleaning . if I get the chance I will do it . also I have noticed it needs a front brake lever because the one that is fitted to the bike is wrong . also there is a small dent in the headlight bezel . both items are very easy and cheap to replace .

Update I have cleaned the carb and it did have sediment in it . could do with an inline filter to keep the carb clean . the one on it was blocked . I have had a cheeky ride up the road  as I live on a small country lane and it pulls like a train through all the gears . it goes well for a little bike .
