Howdy Vinnie,
Sounds pretty much like what I went through here a while back - only age
was never a problem...
Are you sure you don't know anyone who could sell you a moped? I mean
I mentioned at work that I'd want a moped, and alas, a co-worker said
he's got a one he could sell. I was able to test-drive it for three weeks
before I decided to buy it and now I see him who sold it to me almost
every day. So if anything goes wrong, I can always complain - and he is
pretty reliable all in all.

The moped (1984 Tunturi Break-Puch) runs good now that I give her
enough 2-stroke oil in her gas (thanks for the tip, whoever it was that
gave it to me!) and I paid some $400 to get her. Not bad, huh?

Good luck to you, Vinnie
