I think I'm about to purchase a super clean moped that's 17 years old and is said to run "perfect". It comes with the promis of an MOT if I buy. It does look mint - V5 in owners name but he hasn't had it long and and isnt forthcoming wit much info - You have to ask the questions!! Presuming it really does run "perfect" are there other issues I should be concerned about. Square wheels I will take a chance on. Last chance to buy tomorrow so any any quick half hearted opinion welcome. Thanks in advance....
17 years old and only 50 miles does seem a bit odd, it could well be that the scooter has just been in storage or something but the owner would be eager to tell you this to help prove the extremely low mileage validity.
Does it run perfect? Listen to it, and ride it to find out for yourself. Does it make any strange noises, with 50 miles on the clock it should ride like new after a couple of miles. Don't buy it without knowing.
If you're not sure though or have doubts, just leave it, as those doubts will be in your mind every time you ride it.
