How far on a 50


Recommended Posts


Mopeds are little things and tend to be used for commuting and about the town.

So how far would they run constant for before blowing upor something daft?

Don`t mean to sound naive but how about a 23 mile run from Crewe to Wem?

All answers appreciated.

I had a colleague who used to commute from Guildford to Whitehall (over 30 miles) on a 50cc moped. Ithink the journey took him about 1hr 20mins. He was doing this when I first met him in June 1980 and he still had the same machine when I left in March 1984.

I rode all around wales on my AP50 30 years ago i had to keep swapping the spark plug but apart from that it was fine.

I also rode a Puch Maxi, 49cc twist and go, from near portsmouth to telford (180 miles) only stopping for fags and coffee, ( 10 and a bit hours!) the moped was fine I wasn't! :lol:
