Amanda,

The bike is in good condition. Its the 20mph model, and gets every bit of power it can out of its stock parts. Speed can be improved with aftermarket parts. Got it off a friend who thought it was hopeless because of some work that had to be done to it (basically just ordering some new parts) and now is as good as new.

Goods:

-Clean tank (minimal amounts of rust)

-Very clean carb

-Runs strong, like new

-Starts easy

-Body in excellent condition... few dents and very little rust... chrome fenders and muffler also in very good, clean shape.

-Great on hills

Bads:

-Dry rotted tires

-No cover "decking" for pulley

-Cracked but functional clutch plate

-Not original paint job

It'd be a good cheap bike for your first moped. In its present state it's ready to rock, and you could make it really nice with less than $75.
