Default Re: I'm Getting a Moped Instead

I like the fact that these engine kits give us the speed and power of a regular moped but we still have a lighter weight and simple construction advantage. I used to ride a moped, had to license and insure it as well but there is no way I could carry it up the stairs to my apartment. I would never be allowed to ride it on bike trails here in the redwoods either.

These engine kits are cheap and not perfect but with some effort they can be all that we need them to be. True that we have to do some custimization to make them work and look good on our bikes but that is theraputic when we finally achieve success.

I don't know about other people here but personally I have more respect and appreciation of my bike now that I worked hard to make it what it is and do what it does.
