Mopeds, Scooters and Gas
I have been watching the price of gas go steadily up and have been thinking of buying a scooter/moped probably a 49cc to start out with and see if I actually will use it that much. I am going to use it to go to work, about 2 miles and run around town, just short trips that are hard on vehicles when you don't get them up to operating temps. I didn't want to get a larger model than 49cc due to not having a motorcycle license or having to license the scooter, however if I use it more than I think I will, I might sell the smaller one and get something bigger later on.
Anybody have any suggestions on brand or what to look out for? All the prices seem to be between 400 and 900 dollars for most listed on the internet and of course all are foreign made. I don't know if any brands are better than others, parts, dependability etc also come into play. As far as style I was looking at something like the old Vespas or along that line.
Thanks for any comments.
If all else fails.....follow the directions!!
