dmitriy seemed to indicate it the moped wasn't in that poor condition, though it may be scrapped for insurance or something... The person who hit him will be paying insurance $$$, and I doubt they'd fix it? Then I guess the issue is how to get the moped after it's been written off? All speculation of course.
I just don't have a headlight or taillight at the moment (combination of stupidity and previous battery) but I think I can strap on some bike lights and call it good, I may be in! :)
