  • New to Me 750 with a story

    OK, so I post a CL add for want to buy your Goped brand scooters. Have had the add running for almost a year now. Have bought a few Peds as well as had 1 huge flake hence my avatar. LOL. So this guy replies back to my add last week and says hey I have the Goped that looks like this ( link to a pic online of a 750EX). I say sure, please send pics of the actual Ped. He says it is in storage and his wife's uncle invented Goped and used to own the company until he sold his shares about 6 years ago. Not trying to sound too anxious I said yes I am interested lets meet. Picked it up today at 7:30 AM as per pics below. Dusty but very clean otherwise. Needs new batteries is all we thought. Says he was gonna call Steve and have one of his boys send up a new set of batteries but decided to sell it and let someone enjoy it. You guessed it, her uncle is Steve P himself. She grew up watching him invent Gopeds and other stuff. He started telling me of Steve's current motorcycle no suspension but suspension invention. It sounds very cool and I plan to follow up with him on that one. Obviously they got this Ped from Uncle Steve and now I own it. Made my day and a great price too.

      My guess she was talking about the PMW Shocker motorcycle. Don't know what ever became of it, but looked pretty cool...

        Thats it. They said he is still playing with it. It is a thick gell substance that acts like a shock ab sober. It looks to me like a CIDLI front fork but with gell instead of rods.

          I love the CIDLI suspension! Goped could be pioneers in the electric motorcycle trend with their suspension alone.
