I'll have to let you know about the wildfire moped. I ordered trhe 110cc model, with out pedels, The lack of pedels is no problem in NC it still qualifies as a moped. the 110cc engine would make it a motorcycle, but I'm doubting anyone will notice or care. If they do I always have the option of registering it.
I did some research on these "Jialing" type M mopeds.
I heard the haters, and the owners. It seems most of the haters hate them with out ever owning or driving one. I talked to 5 owners and everyone of them said they have stood up to time and miles.
I really wanted a new Tomos, but the local dealer wanted $1800 + for a TTLX thats just crazy. I have 3 used mopeds, and I'm only selling two to help pay for the Wildfire. So I guess if its a total dud, I can sell it on E-bay, and reinvest on yet another used moped.
As for the truck being flimsy. I wouldn't doubt it. its $4000, and only weighs 700 pounds.
The big question I have is will it last 25000 miles... Thats my break away point for a cheap auto. I've actually owned close to 20 cars in the last 18 years. (including parts cars.)
And I've never paid more then $1400 for one. I usually fix what needs to be fixed, and drive them until a major problem comes up. Then its on to the next one. This little truck would be sort of the same. I'll commute with it until 25000 miles and then sell it.
You drove one? what else did you think of it? other then feeling cheap, what were your impressions?
