MIKE AND BRENDA CORNELL
Fat City Moped was established by Mike Cornell in 1978 as one of the original moped shops in the US with the Sachs and Vespa franchises, as well as Jawa, Indian, and Bajaj. Fat City had it's main store in Plymouth, and a second store in Sheboygan, WI, and is now an online store only.
From '78-82, they sold over 500 Sachs, Vespa, Jawa, and Indian brand mopeds and also Vespa and Bajaj scooters.
Mike moved up to Harleys in '84 and spent the next 25 years around them. In 2002, he rekindled his interest in Sachs and Vespas for the purpose of building a collection, which led him to parts suppliers around the world, and the opportunity to mix a little business with pleasure.
Mike visits suppliers in Europe from time to time, and strives to keep hard to find items at reasonable prices for enthusiasts. He also specializes in the hard to find stuff, little stuff, miscellaneous stuff, exclusively vintage Sachs and Vespa.
In 2013, he acquired the Vespa of America inventory from their departure move in the late 90's. The inventory is too huge to list. So it's best to ask, like at a bone yard.
The parts from Fat City are generally OEM, or original equipment replacement quality. WE HAVE A GREAT BONEYARD of good used stuff unlisted here. Best to email your request. With the ages of these things, lots of mistakes are made.
The featured ped in the photo is Mike's wife Brenda's 1980 Sachs Prima with a hopped up 505/D motor that goes about 40 on race gas. She uses it to do her grocery shopping and errands during the riding season. She had an identical bike in 1980 when she rode it to her job as a grade school teacher.
