Anyways about that motobecane and the general, you see i have a neighbor that until a few years ago had 400 mopeds in his backyard. he doesn't have as many as before, but he has a lot and A LOT of parts. I have some other neighbors who have around 25 and a friend with a general, and another friend with five other mopeds. You see, i have a lot of chances to get very good deals on them but i can't convince my parents. I already have a go-ped and a mini-bike which i rebuilt, so i have decent knowledge of these little corn-poppers and I really want one. But for a somewhat rusty moped with bad brakes, a broken chain, no air filter, no speedo, no headlight, no kill switch, no taillight, no gas cap, and ripped seat with a running minarelli engine is relly worth $80? If i convince my parents i don't want to get ripped off. I dont want to invest a whole lot, I just want a beater-upper that would be nice and reliable i dont want anything super fancy. Bu the motobecane is pretty nice.
I dont think my parent would let me get both.
P.S. I appreciate all the input i could get.
