I'm a fat old dad now.
and i want a top tank - i've never had one.
and I recently sold my vintage yamaha that I had rebuilt, and tinkered with , and modded and stuff. so i have some budget
My Peugeot 103 is so clean and O.G. that there is nothing to do to it. Someone even brought it to Myron's back in the day and Shawn did the ignition upgrade.
downside: it is a stock Pug so it doesn't start off the line .... and it only goes 33
So now i have nothing to work on in addition to not being able to go up a hill.
another factor: i have kids. so time is hard to come by
I like it.
i like the brutal design.
i test drove one, and ...... it was insanely fun. Fast. Stops safely. modern as fuck.
cons: if something goes wrong ..... i have to bring it to a specialist. i have to charge it. it is, what it is.
mark II :
in LA a used mark II in generally over-priced. So over priced, that the ohio riders would belly laugh and belittle me.
also - i have no puch experience, and don't even know what i wold do to an e50 to make it pull my lard ass up a hill. i doubt it is "up jet, add a performace pipe"
i have only fucked with Tomos and sachs engines (non moped old vespa, yamaha MC etc.)
but part of me thinks an onyx will be a cop out.
and that I'll get over it and just watch a kitted MAXI go by and think - that goes up a hill and that person probably made it go.
Maybe i'm just a bitter broken person
attached is a magnum available currently : look at the price tag.....
