Default Re: What is more reliable?

I'm voting for the moped. Can't build a motorized bike as strong as the moped for under $500. The engine, even being a 1978, is likely to be more reliable as well. It's not our place to judge the man's weight or suggest that pedaling is better than motoring for a man his size. The only way that his weight plays into this discussion is to suggest what motor might carry his weight better. Buying the moped, he doesn't have a choice of motor except as a possible replacement. It's not our place to judge anyone's physical appearance, nor to suggest that they modify it. It simply has nothing to do with the hobby. I suggest he buy the moped because it is going to be the stronger option and he doesn't have to tinker with it before driving it 34 miles round trip.
