    I'm going this evening to pick up a Raleigh Runabout moped and I was wondering if anyone knows anything about them.
    I already know of a few things I will need for it, including a motor.
    here is a link to a similar one...

    I have found a few things online about them but I'm looking for something in the states.
    Can anyone point me in the right direction?

    Due to the overwhelming response I figured I should put up some pictures...

    So, does anyone know anything about these? Or, better yet... have some parts?

    Do not put a motor in it! I think it's awesome as is!

    You wouldn't think so after you pedaled it for a couple hundred feet. :|

    I pedaled it around the drive way and it was fun for about 30 seconds :lol:
    If I can't find a motor I am going to have to get rid of it.

    Yeah, I've got a Kinetic TFR and it weighs almost 200 lbs. The pedal option for mopeds is a joke. Check out Moped army there might even be other engine choices for it vs trying to find it's original.
     
  8. I think a Puch motor will fit those. Don't quote me on it though. It would be cool with the 110cc chopper motor with 4 speed I got sitting in my shed though. :mrgreen:
