Default Re: I'm Getting a Moped Instead

I dunno, I like the feeling I get when I hop on either of my bikes and the sense of accomplishment of being able to tell people that I built it.

If I got a moped I'd have to tweak it and make it mine... So I might as well stick with the cheaper option and build motorized bikes.

I have about $300 wrapped up in my bike... Probably will spend another $100 or so, so for about $400 I'll have a full built custom motorized bike. If I were to start with a moped I'd only be able to get a junk tomos or puch from 1980 and I'd spend as much time fixing that as i would riding it. In the end money-wise for something new I'm happy to have what I have.

I like vintage mopeds but these bikes fit my personality better.
