The closest shop that repairs mopeds is the same one I bought mine from, and it's 40 miles away. I've had to take the thing in the back of my small Mazda hatchback about 3 times (6 trips back and forth) and every single time I take it there something get's damaged on either my moped or my car...Tonight was a living nightmare of torn upolstery and gasoline fumes. When I got there to pick the thing up, (I dropped it off the day before for a tube replacment) and tried to get it back in my car, the fucking gas line ripped open...RIPPED THE FUCK OPEN! and was spilling loads of gas all over the interior of my car... The muffler also nicely mangaged to rip a good 3/4 foot portion of the lining of my back seat all to pieces, which was folded down so I could fit the thing in. Anyway, I took it right out, brought it back into the shop and got a new gas tube (for 50 cents...the old owner guy was saying "well, I normally wouldn't charge you but, I did take 20 cents or so off your repair bill"...) I am selling this thing AS SOON AS POSSIBLE, taking a big loss probably, since I paid $900, and NO ONE around here is going to buy a used moped for anywhere near that, especially considering the closest place around that repairs them is 40 miles away, and run by an asshole. I thought I would love having a moped, but I'll say this to anyone who wants to get one. If you don't own a truck or live across from a moped repair shop, or know how to fix 'em yourself, NEVER EVER EVER EVER THINK of buying one. It is eternal hell...
