a kid here hit a 3" curb with his last monday and totaled both of his wheels.
i get them in at the shop once in a while with all sorts of problems. everything from broken sub frames to blown engine gaskets. i won't even work on them any more, i send them away.
those "highway pegs" are a big problem, as half of the ones i've seen have been crashed because the rider has his feet on those rather than the pedals where they should be. there is a reason most mopeds come with a sticker that says "ride with feet on pedals"
a running bike, whatever it is, could be worth $100, depending on how desperate you are. personally, i wouldn't pay $50 for a kinetic. if someone GAVE me one, i would take the cdi off of it and throw the rest at the nearest vagrant.
tfr made a very janky moped.
