They look terrific. Did you restore them yourself?

Magnificent! Moby's really have infested and infected all corners of the globe and these are among the shiniest, i've ever seen. And a whole herd! The grey one in the last picture looks like a GAC-mobylette, with the rear- telescopes. How is the gearing on these bikes? the rear sprockets seem rather small. With the gearing on the moby's overhere, they would go very fast, but lack pulling power. Can you explain?

Restoration of any Mobylette in Bermuda is a big thing, once upon a time there were probably well over a thousand of various models here as well as Peugeot 103's, Maxi Puch, Honda PC50's, used for civil, public, and Tourist, transportation. Now days as you can imagine Moby's are collectors items, the pictures I have posted are from a group of friends of mine, we usually get together every other Sunday for a ride. As you can see we take great pride in the appearance of our Moby's with paint job and lots of chrome, people get a real kick out of seeing 5-10 Moby's coming down the street sounding like a bunch of bees!! there are lots more around but you just don't see them that often.. Moby-Joost you are correct, that is actually my bike it was brought in from Spain almost as you see it except for the chrome... I'll tell you what, good observation on the gearing in this picture i had a 38 rear sprocket and a 13 front sprocket, and your right lots of top end speed at the sacrifice of power, I have since which gone back to a 44 rear sprocket, we all here are fascinated with the most speed possible as the national speed limit is only 30mph, so you can imaging that all of the bikes pictured are running kits of various sizes! The black Moby in the second picture is one of the fastest of the group the bike itself is about 27 years old and the owner has had it since he was 16 years old, he was clocked doing just about 65-70mph the Orange one is about as fast.. so speed is a big thing.

Intersting seeing the line up ,clean and very shiney seems to be the custom in Bermuda,
I sold a Phillips Gadabout mk4 about a year ago, the man who bought it was going to ship it to his pal in Bermuda for restoration, Its an early Orange model with leading link forks ,UK reg ( if i remember correctly ) was 102 TDH.
be interested to see it when its done....

A few years ago i signed a petition to try to prevent a change in your law banning all two strokes from the road....looks like it was sucessful
