All, excited to find this community and hoping for some advice on selecting a moped as my expertise on the subject consists of about 2 hours of internet searchers...
- We live in NJ (must have pedals and be 50cc or less per NJ DMV web page).
- The moped is for my son who just turned 15, which will allow him to ride on the road.
-Purpose of the moped is for him to go back and forth from work (multiple locations, all with in 5-10 miles, 3-4 trips a week)
-We are in a relatively hilly area.
-Something that will holds it value so he can sell it in 2-3 years to buy a car.
-My son is mechanical (rebuilt a go-cart, fixes our mower...)
-Also my son is 6' and still growing (I can no longer beat him in basketball which is sad) so I'm not sure if some Moped brands are better for longer legs.
-Price... I think $500 to $1,500 is realistic depending on the resale value & reliability.
Any thoughts and advice would be great and a huge help...both options to look for and options to avoid...
