I'm not sure what happened to my Tomos. The shop said the engine seized,
maybe no oil. But I always topped the oil and even used synthetic oil which
they recommended. Maybe the oil pump failed. I have checked on the web. A
new top end is still available from Tomos, about a $200 repair.
It has been weeks now for me to get a definitive report from them. Moped
Hospital. They say here in Key West after 4-5 years, the engine bolts
usually fuse from the heat and salt water and it becomes impossible to pull
In the past years I have used them for service and they have been good but
they are dragging their feet on this Tomos. I have two Targas so I am not
stuck without transportation.
But I would like to get this unit fixed. I like the Tomos Targas. I think
they may be a little bit safer then all the scooters with small wheels that
we see here in Key West.
I have seen your web site! More power to you for going cross country on a
