Vintage Italian Safari 300MT Moped/Scooter 1979, Minarelli V1 49CC 2-Stroke, Café Racer Style - Rare Find!
Up for sale is a Vintage Italian 1979 (or thereabouts) Safari 300MT Moped in good
condition (it could also be a 400MT or Super Scat, really not very much
information around on these). These old pedal mopeds do not have a title, nor a Vin number. This is a super rare Moped, really cool
looking and I can only find one other online that sold years ago.
Minarelli V1 2-Stroke Engine. Centrifugal clutch. Has headlight,
taillight & brake lights. The Moped has been tastefully stripped
down a little bit like a café racer, it has drag bars, a slimmer, lower
seat, gauges have been removed (the mileage is unknown), no front fender, running boards have
been removed, pedals have been removed (you can start it by simply
rolling it forward and pulling the start handle) it has a lighter
aftermarket exhaust, really cool looking. It is in good condition, the
paint is in good shape, a few chips here and there have been touched up.
New Parts in the last Month:

This is not a show quality bike, but would be really cool for someone to
ride and enjoy. The front wheel is not original and has a little bit
of surface rust. The chrome headlight trim ring has a little rust. The
tires are older, but hold air just fine. The engine starts easily and
is surprisingly quiet. Comes with a bag full of extra/spare/original
parts as well as a lock for the tree. I am by no means an expert on
Modpeds, it puts around just fine on level ground, but not a ton of
power going up hill. I suspect the carb may just be out of adjustment.
Probably needs a brief visit with a scooter guru. I’m selling the bike
for a friend who just moved out of the country.
I’m in Morgan Hill, could probably be coerced in to delivering within
reason, maybe up to San Francisco or so. You could do local pickup, have it shipped at your expense, or I'd be willing to crate it up and ship it freight (might get pricey) so please bid accordingly.
