I have found myself in somewhat of a money bind and am throwing around the idea of selling my bike. It's in great shape and I have a ton of parts for it. Only thing not working is the tail light, instead I have retrofitted a bike LED unit to go inside stock assembly. You can fix this if you like, or leave it for enhanced visibility.
Sparta bikes are well made Dutch machines, with Sparta 504/1A engines. They have hydrolic forks and shocks. This one has the larger carburator and is a 35MPH model. Quality on this bike is TOP NOTCH. Parts can be had easily from HandyBikes.
