    My friend sold me a vintage bike buy for 150bucks still in the box! I seen it in his garage and asked him about it and he said his dad has 5 of em still in the box in storage and he was gonna sell it in his yard sale for $150. I pulled out my wallet and paid him.

    I went for a ride to the store about 10miles away and it was great. I was going atleast 35 maybe 40. Some one told me they have a new and improved model on there website. I would like to see how those run.

    The old kits were pretty good & it should provide plenty of service. Take good care of it. I had 10 times rather spend $150 on your kit, than a new Chinese one.

    I suggest giving any new motor a break-in period, & do not run at top speed.

    Bike Bugs are awesome but not known for being able to go at least 35 maybe 40 unless you're talking km/hr?

    Running it " 35" out of the box is not how to beark one in. I am with " LR " & seem to only remember about 20-24mph out of those, & I am a lightweight rider.
