Hello mopedeers,

Well, I'll help you both, and we'll forget this thread as soon as possible;

To hear the exact value of your rust-covered Cimatti, call the nearest
junkyard, and ask them what the going rate is for 35 Kg of iron and 3 Kg of
alloy. Add these figures together, and you ought to have a pretty good idea.
On the other hand, you could put it for sale on ebay too, and wait for the
offers that will come. Maybe someone out there is searching for a thing
like that for years, and wants to pay 10.000 for it.
Is this a mini-bike or a normal moped?

Forget about those shocks. If they're stuck, the inner pipe its likely to
be bent or horrible rusty.
Either way, the oil-seal will not be oil-tight if you would succeed in
releasing it.
I'm pretty sure they will come loose if you remove them from your moped and
turn the upper mount clock-wise a few times.

I'm afraid I can't give any positive news today..

Cheers,
