Here's a recent pic of the Riga 13 moped I picked up on the Isle of Wight a little while back. Have had the beast running and undertaken a few crafty spins up and down the road. Next step is to fabricate some suitable guards for the extensive chain arrangement, then off to the MOT prior to registration. Overall a fun little machine exhibiting that characteristic Soviet heavy but flimsy feeling - delightful!

... and it will fit in the Barkas if you bring it to the Iron Curtain Vehicle Rally. Looks like there could be a Simson coming along as well as some MZs.
