    buying a cheap scooter/moped

    Hi

    Traveling costs in london have gone out of my control and literally i am spending a huge amount of my earnings on traveling, therefore i am thinking about getting a scooter or a motor bike.

    kindly advice me on this as i am a bit short at funds and cant spend too much.

    thanks

    he's having a laugh,they are like big people cars,
    If you want a scooter and havent got a bike license you would need to take your cbt unless you allready have it or passed the full bike test( 21)which lets you ride anything,if you have driving license before 2001 you can ride 50cc or less or upto 125cc 33bph on a cbt valid for 2 years with l plates
    If you are getting one,i would recomend a big wheel bike,wont come off round corners so easily,a 125cc 2 stroke will be nippy,maybe have a look at some bmw c1's,they are good for london

    pm me if you need any help as i know my stuff about bikes now

    Buy a Honda CG125 mate. 100+ MPG, needs little to no maintenance and engines are like tanks.

    all honda's go on forever ,the Honda Varadero 125 is cool aswell,i get around 135 mpg out my 1983 honda scooter,was a show bike before i came off it twice,so dont go for the little wheels

    thanks jackit99 that was very informative and i admire ur knowledge about bikes..
    how much cbt costs? i will be more than happy to get a moped if it can do 30mph.
    what is the best place to buy them? i was checking gumtree but its full of douggy people.

    Scooter wise would look to piaggio either the fly or an old vespa

    Bikes either a cg 125 or its upgrade the cbf 125

    piaggio is junk to be honest,im trying to fix up a zip thats alot harder to fix than the honda,
    if you have small budget,maybe something like a honda sgx 50,a few on ebay cheap

    For a cheap scooter, buy a Honda Lead. Quite nippy too.

    Out of interest, how much is "a huge amount"?

    U can get chinese imports for next to nothing, never owned but sure they will be ok?

    never found a fault with this

    Having a laugh mate piaggio junk ??!!

    Vespas are the best mopeds/scooters out there - you've just bought a wrecked ZIP as they are simple to fix.

    As with the post above Honda Lead is a good bike and better for an adult - The zip and things like the typhoon are for 16 year olds on estates !! :-D

    it is junk with my experiences of piaggio,i agree the more exspensive vespa/piaggios are good though,cant really exspect the best quality when there selling the zips new for 1,000 £
