You didn't do that badly. She'll probably enjoy the moped as much as (if not more) than an ebike. Your license and insurance are a lot less than here (I think; haven't investigated). This what I built my daughter for her trips around Las Vegas. The motor and battery were about $750 delivered and the bike about $200 since it didn't have a front fork or wheel (which I already had). Wasn't expensive since I already had the motor and battery and they weren't being used anymore.
