    Hi from Utah, I'll be building my first bike when my motoped kit arrives (hopefully next month or so). I have a weakness for old small-bore honda motorcycles and love the idea of riding a motorized bike to work.

    Thanks for all info!

    That motoped is a nice setup. I'll be watching your build.
    I'll be waiting on the electric version of the motoped.

    I'll try to document the build with vids and pics ( most of it will be youtubed via my blog), I think I'm going to do something along the lines of this:

    That one in the picture isn't mine, but it is kind of what I'm going to go for. Still waiting for my kit.

    Waiting is hard! As a true blue American I want stuff now. While waiting I decided to set up a blog about my Motoped which can be found here:
    wwww.motopedhead.com
    I'm putting everything I can find about Motopeds there as well as my research into Utah laws for motorized bicycles and mopeds. The findings have been interesting and I am hopeful I can cruise the streets unmolested. We'll see.

    Okay, I finally got my Motoped kit! Here a little vid of the unpacking of the kit.

    For being produced in China all the parts and welds look very good. Now comes finding time to source my parts and put it together.
