    It will look and go 10x better than the other shit box's you see 16 year olds riding.
    Well done for having taste at such a young age.

    I carry a gun because I'm too young to die, too old to take an ass whooping, and a cop is too heavy.

    There is a fellow on this site that could make you a nice copy of a TA125 tank to put on there.

    Everyone should have one of these in the garage. Perfect little neighborhood ride.


    I think it's perfect just as is.

    They were all over Tokyo and Yokohama when I visited there. So many nice little 2 strokes back than in the early 90s.

    That was the deal in Switzerland when I was growing up in the '60's. Mopeds were restricted to 30 kmh. Drivers licenses for anything bigger or faster required a minimum age of 18 & lots of drivers ed. The best we could do was to buy a 2 speed Sachs moped and drill out the intake restricter, mess with the exhaust (usually just ended up with more noise), change the sprocket ratios and put on a huge carb. This, of course, was illegal! I was busted for going 50kmh.(Not fast enough to outrun the police VW Beetles). The police confiscated the bike and crushed it. The beginning of my life of crime!
