go search 2000 dollar moped in the gen forum. there is a whole thread on it. and yes its worth the 2000 dollars to someone that is willing to pay that. it may not be reasonable to you or i but it still makes sense. what if some 16 year old rich kid want a ped that does 50 with out having to upgrade and do it himself.. theres his answer. i personally love the work that comes out of 1977 and respect them more that anything. don't diss them.
oh and $1.43? really. that is nothing.
