    At first, I was uncertain because of the front shocks plus the frame shocks.

    Cost? $10.00 wow!

    I rode it a little and was quite pleased.

    It goes over bumps like a limo.

    It weighs 34 pounds,

    Pedaling would be inefficient but with my Staton Honda GX-31 kit, it should be smooooth.

    If it was painted camo would it be a girl's bike?

    Do you require a horizontal ball breaker tube for it to be acceptable?

    This of course, would eliminate all motor scooters.

    When you only pay $10 for a bike (looks new, by the way), you can spend your savings on the
    on some paint. A lot of guys buy girls bike for parts, too.

    A pinch. Is that when you need to go to the pharmacy and the only means of transportation is a female bike?

    You indicated that you would not ride it. Would you walk bro?

    (I have always enjoyed riding females)

    OP it would be a boring world if everyone had the same idea of what a bike should look like. A lot of older folks use women's style bikes because of limited body movement capability. I respect that and some day it might be my still needs to go though.

    I am 76 and quite able to lift my leg over.

    Would you ride a feminine style (no leg over) motor scooter?

    Non-threatening pink might get you a pass if stopped for riding a motorized bicycle; especially one this size.

    Again, the ride is unbelievably smooth.

    What manly color do you suggest?

    Nothing screams "confidence" more than a man who doesn't care what it "looks" like.By the time I'm done there's usually so much gorilla tape on it it's half black either way.I say look for another, you have the skills, make the coolest all-terrain rhodes-car there is!
