Looks a bit like some of the setups I saw when I was working in France years ago. They used to call them Mopeds- and were street legal for 16 year olds. As a two Stroke mechanic- I used to be asked to "Tune" some of these mopeds. Problem was that if you gave the moped more power- all that would happen was that the bike found a brick wall quicker as they did not handle very well.
But as a bike for fetching some pies, a nice basket for the bars and walla!
I had a friend who died on a Moped. Riding it on an icy day, it slid into a telephone pole. Sad day.
I think its disgusting and terrible how people treat Lance Armstrong, especially after winning 7 Tour de France Titles while on drugs!
