I don't know much about motorized bicycles but I just bought my first one.

I was wondering if someone can appraise my bike for me. I just wanna make sure I didn't get screwed.

Looks like the bike has some nice parts on it....... As long as you're happy with the price paid, you didn't get screwed, in my opinion.

With that being said, these bikes rarely sell for as much as what is put into them.

I pretty much bought it as is. The only thing that I've done to it is rebuild the carb and change the jet from a 70 to a 75.

There is sure 800.00 - 950.00 Plus dollars in components as a rough guess in parts if purchased separate, as I calculate it in my tired head. Labor is almost always lost somehow on a used Motorbike.
Its hard to tell by pictures but its worth what someone will pay for it.
Cant tell if paint, finishes and hardware, tires are pristine,age etc. but it looks like a cool bike and good components from what I can see.
congrats on getting it.
PS /Gotta come clean now... and say what you paid. LOL

I think all the 2-stroke engines suck. I'd never pay more than a couple hundred bucks for a bike with a 2-stroke on it. I did get one once, but I got it free, built it and sold the bike for $250 to some schmuck.

For the components tho, it may be worth around $600. Those look like 700c wheels which are useless for motor use. You won't be able to fit bigger tires which is something you'll want very soon

I paid $500 *******! I'm just trying to see if I got a good deal or not from a more experienced enthusiasts than I. Your response is uncalled for. If he just wanted to get your ass kicked you should have just sent me your address instead.

Your bike has some good parts on it that I can see:
Bike Frame with tank---> $100-$200
High compression head---> $40-$70
Mag Wheels-----> $100-$300
Expansion Pipe---> $60-$80
Disc Brake Suspension Fork---> $70-$250

You definitely got a good deal for $500
