My friend bought this 1967 Montgomery Wards Riverside 125cc back in 2007 and put about 2 miles on it. He was unable to register it here in NJ because the DMV does not accept “Montogomery Wards” as a brand in its database. So, he put it in his house as a very cool hallway decoration where it has been for the past 11 years. He just bought a new BMW bike this week, so he pulled it into the garage and this is now up for sale.
It has cafe bars, custom seat and a custom two-tone paint job, which was done about 20 years ago and looks very presentable. It has a magneto ignition conversion, so no battery, kick to start. These were built by Binelli and sold via Montgomery Wards. A rather rare bike.
Because he couldn’t register it, the DMV never issued him a title. As such, only a bill of sale can be provided to the new owner. Please check your local state regulations as to what you will need to register it. If you only need a bill of sale and can bring the bike to show in person as proof of the VIN, you’re likely good to go. Sold as is, sale is final.
