NOT A DEAL, The cost of parts will way exceed the value of the finished
bike. I know this from experience. I highly suggest that you start with a
running bike needing nothing or a tune up only. You can keep it for a parts
bike, if you have an out of the way place for storage (I don't think I
would). Trying to make this situation dependable transportation will in my
opinion cost as much as a good one and be a lot of hassle.
This is only my opinion, others may have had better experiences. By all
means, DO get one. Low cost, easy to learn, low maintenance and a lot of fun,
describes this "sport." I hope that in the future we will see mopeds in the
back of pickup's being transported to Florida to ride. for a mini-bike week,
excuse the pun.
Any marketing people out there?
