NEED ADVICE

The Moped Gawd /

ADVICE ???.......OK........TAKE MONEY

Re: NEED ADVICE

buy both if you can. see if he can give them to you at a good price for both. you can always sell one to a friend or have another in case yours breaks down. take a friend along to help you decide. bring money.

chances are, seeing the ped, your friend WILL want to buy whichever one you don't buy.

also, i'd go w/ the italian moped.

Re: NEED ADVICE

how much is he asking? and what condition(s) are the peds in? that makes a difference. for a running moped, i wouldn't go much more than $250-300 (unless it's super super well maintained and you are very desperate for it). if in some state of disrepair, go under $200 (or as low as possible).

see if you can get both for $500 or less. try it. he might not have an easy time selling them. so try to get both. like i said ... take a friend. he/she will want the other one. or buy them both and then you can let friends ride one so you can ride together.

that will also help build enthusiasm and bring more mopeds to your town. i've never met anyone who didn't ride a moped and fall in love w/ them. seriously. they're wonderful! ;-)

Re: NEED ADVICE

I bought the batavus and LOVE it!
