a friend of mine called me up the other day talking about how he found this guy who's selling bikes with motors attached to them, and how for 500$ its the greatest deal on the planet and he was gonna go buy one. i tried to persuade him to just got for a moped, with the advantages being head/tail lights, shocks, not having to sit on a bicycle seat, potential for upgrades, and basically having something that was designed to be a moped, and not a bike that was flim flamed into a moped.
any opinions about this? i know for 500$ there are a lot of nice mopeds that can be had. id rather not see him blow a bunch of cash on something sub par.
