I have just purchased a Hercules moped with a Sachs motor, and I am having trouble finding out any information about it. ( The last owner didn’t know anything about it either). How do I find out what year it is, or the engine size or whether it is compliant with local laws and regulations??? Is there a specific location of a serial number? (I can’t locate it ) Is the engine marked in any way as to tell me the size? If any one can help please email me at tiazimon at excite.com Thank you for your help.2005-04-18 at 5:41 pm #12711

I am not an expert but I remember seeing many Sachs engine two strokes in Vietnam in the mid 60s. These were mopeds and small displacement bikes. The scooter and 3 wheel market was dominated by Vespa & Lambretta. Honda dominates now.
It appeared to me that the mopeds were made locally or for local consumption and fitted with Sachs engines. Some of the mopeds or small bikes were painted in garish colors like yellow and purple. They had flared fenders on them. The color schemes and styling appealed greatly to older Vietnamese. These bikes were terrific in reliability. Breakdowns in that country are a lot more dangerous than Europe.
They also had a DKW (same company, I think) fan cooled engine later on. The fan cooling was a big deal in that climate. I understand that Sachs sold a lot of their engines to other companies. I thought some were marked JBE SACHS but I am not sure.
The Vietnamese were very status conscious as we yanks are. They would push the bikes for miles in tropical heat to save fuel and then drive it through the village where everyone could see them. It reminded me of motorcycle poseurs here in the US. The teenager boys would get the family moped and try to pick up girls. Some things never change. — Mike H — MHENN323 at aol.com2005-04-18 at 5:43 pm #12712

The following numbers I got off the bike frame:
Sachs & Hurnberger
GAWR FRONT 132
” REAR 220
TYPE: Motor Driven Cycle
The following numbers I got off the engine:
Fichtel & Sachs AG
Mot Nr. 9728469

Hi there, I stumbled across your website, and you have lots of interesting links. I was wandering, I have a 1981 50cc Sachs Moped. It runs, but I would like to make it street legal for my little cousin. Most of the wiring for lights, signals etc have been stripped or disconnected and I need to know where I can find a wiring schematic or a manual. I have looked all over the internet without results. If you could assist me, please reply.
Thank You in advance, — Bill Douros — bdouros at telusplanet.net2005-05-05 at 6:46 am #12714

Hey, any luck with your moped?, Im sort of in the same boat, It sounds like we have similar mopeds. Were you able to find parts?

There is a website for a guy who bought out Fichetl&Sachs left-overs at the factory in Schweinfurt, Germany. May be worth checking him out:
