Hey there,

Looking for some advice on buying my first moped. Trying to decide between a used General 5 Star and a new Amstar Nostalgia. I know some people have serious reservations about new model Chinese bikes but I've read some enthusiastic reviews as well. Will I have trouble upgrading the Amstar? Someone told me the newly manufactured ones aren't a 4 speed anymore.

The General is beautiful but I'm worried about buying an older bike with limited info on it. "It runs." Isnt super comforting. Also I haven't seen many parts around for it if something breaks.

Both will end up being about the same price.

Any thoughts are appreciated. (edited)
