I want to get my son a moped for Christmas. I'm looking for a moped that will be easy to find parts for if he needs to make repairs. This is a 1981 Columbia listed for sale near my house for $425. We are big into motorcycles and I want him to gain street riding experience as soon as possible. In Minnesota 15 year olds can ride a 49cc. I think it would be fun to cruise around with him next summer. We live in a small town and the speed limit is 30 mph everywhere.
Is this Columbia a decent bike? Does the Sachs 505 motor have a good reputation?
