Re: Buying a motorized bike - good or bad idea?
I concur with the other guys. On a first motored bike I wouldn't put too much money in it. If this lights your fire and you decide this is just great then you'll have an idea of where you want to go with motored biking and what you want. And if this one still runs, you can pass it along to someone else. If it has 5,000 miles on it, then the bugs have been pretty well worked out by now and it has proved that it is road worthy. Ask questions here and if you get it ask about beefing up the front fender mounts. (I didn't look at te ad & don't know if it still has a front fender). Simple, but important thing to do for safety.
Someday when I grow up I will probably lose interest in toys with wheels, but until then...
