oh I know it's flawed logic, it's just what gets kinda stuck in my head anyway. Like I go look for older electric bicycles on craigslist now and think, oh that's a good deal for 200 but I'd need another 500-1000 in batteries and then i'm almost at new e-bike anyway.

As for the fuel pollutes anyway, that's a silly and demonstrably false statement. It's a fun thing to tell ourselves when we don't want to change. I do agree with it on some fronts however - specifically that restoring old things has huge benefits over building and buying new things. So from that point, definitely lets save old mopeds and port the stock cylinder instead of buying new - adapt some old throwaway blinker to replace your headlight instead of buying new. Make a fairing out of that rusted old hobbit tank instead of buying a new one. there's advantages there. But to say that emerging technology like batteries are as bad or worse than fossil fuel is plainly false, but worse the new technologies have a lot more opportunity to be better than they are, and that's only advanced once we start promoting their use - like think of early gas engines and how crazy inefficient they were, and compare that to engines now. Then to compare that highly evolved technology to new tech in it's infancy with low penetration and not yet benefiting from economy of scale it's rather unfair. and still doesn't make a reasonable case for battery being worse than fuel
