Moped and scooter engines are well built and reliable machines, but sometimes engines are just "shot"... be it from abuse, neglect, or just tons of happy miles.

This service is usually not required except in the worst cases of engine disrepair.

Performance Modifications and Customization
Sometimes you want a little more pep in your moped's step. We may be able to help. When seeking to enhance the performance of a moped or scooter, we generally suggest modest upgrades that will get you good bang for your buck. In general, we will not be turning your moped into a race machine. Instead, we can suggest a combination of carburetor, exhaust, drivetrain, and cosmetic modifications that will let you get the most out of your moped.
Our shop is outfitted with a top notch metal working and machine shop - modifications, customizations, repairs, and fabrication can be performed as needed.
Keep in mind: Mopeds and scooters were designed to be reliable, fuel efficient, and affordable to maintain. They are not, by any standards, designed as "performance" vehicles - so try not to set your hopes too high. Therefore, modifying these machines to make improvements to performance can be detrimental the fuel efficiency, affordability, and reliability. So lets think long and hard before we go changing your perfectly good stock moped into something it isn't. Sometimes its just best to let your moped be itself ;). We reserve the right to use our best judgement to refuse modification of a vehicle.
*After any performance modifications or customizations are made to a moped, Port City Mopeds intends for the vehicle to be for off-road use only. Performance work can sometimes push your moped or scooter into the realm of street-illegality, so if you plan on taking your bike on the street it is your responsibility to register and/or insure it accordingly! Please be safe!
Moped Pickup/Storage Policy:
We're always limited on space, and we do our best to work very quickly to get your moped serviced and back in your hands in as little time as possible. We hope that you can respect that, and can work just as quickly to come pick up your moped after we notify you service is completed. To emphasize the importance of this policy, Port City Mopeds reserves the right to apply a $30/day storage fee to mopeds left in our facility starting 3 days after the original notification of completion of services. Don't worry - we don't want to apply this fee to anyone - we can work with you as you correspond promptly and schedule a pickup date within a reasonable timeframe from the notification of completion of services.
