Wicked Presenting the Dual Sport Moped (not scooter!)

So I am now 18, and have ALWAYS wanted a motorcycle/dirt bike. Unfortunately I have never been able to afford one, and around here (NE Ohio) there is really not many places to ride a straight dirt bike anyway. Last year I got my first moped, a top tank style that looks sorta like a vintage motorcycle and loved it so I bought a second one. Eventually sold the first one and decided I wanted in on some offroad action with the bike I had left so this project happened, the dual sport Tomos moped:

Before:


Currently In Progress:


It has a 50cc 2 stroke motor, 2 speed auto transmission, 16 inch mag wheels. Currently has a cheap expansion chamber exhaust on it and slight upjet. Still needs: 2.50x16 dual sport tires, mirrors, small turn signals, new performance pipe. It's already a blast to drive around on the street, top speed is about 40 MPH and it has decent acceleration/low end power (new pipe will improve that more) Planning on riding some random singletrack in nearby woods:

Just promise that you won't do anything that can't be undone. You have a fairly desirable Tomos there.

OH.....you also have to promise to have fun.
