Awesome, great written responses everyone! Exactly what I was looking for.
Pros, cons, etc.
I really appreciate all you guys taking your time to respond.
Thanks PD, i agree with Japanese making good engines.
Thanks Nick, and yes i've been told good things about the CVT for hills.
I don't wanna be peddling up a hill. If I did, I'd buy a 10-speed.
I for sure knew not to get the PAI Hobbit from '78 and '79.
The PAII, 1981 with turn signals, is what I'm considering.
Rocco, thanks, I am gonna wanna haul some ass here and there!
I'd like a moped quick enough that I could wheelie, although i will keep both wheels on the ground.
Thanks Rex! Let me know when yours is for sale,...(if your Hobbit has turn signals).
I really do want turn signals.
Right on, Bas. Don't trust nobody, lol.
Schmiddy, thanks for splaining all that.
I appreciate you taking all the time to do that!
Thanks Stephen, wow you've had your Hobbit 20 years, nice.
Wow, no Maxis with factory turn signals...good to know.
Tomos, thanks, I may get both....(in time). Ride one while I tinker and tune the other.
Chris Szuba, thank you,... and I never wanna peddle. Lol
Bad Cadillac, thank you. As long as I'm not crouched over like on a Puch Magnum, or other crotch rocket style, I will be fine.
I have a busted up back, so i like like sitting upright, with high handlebars, which Hobbit and Maxis are.
As cool as they look, cafe racers unfortunately won't be comfortable for me.
Josh, thanks for taking the time to splain the pros and cons!
Exactly the type info I was needed!
Leaning toward the Hobbit....so far.
