If it's to get a 50 for a 16 year old, forget it. You need to be 17 to ride the C50's.

It's not. Jim (not many Jims around these days :lol: :D) just wants a C50. He's said so in a previous thread. 8-)

all down to speed , a moped is classed as only being able to do 28 miles a hour

Plus you still need a CBT and L plates to ride a C50.

So what about the geared DT's and stuff? Or are they just telling insurance companies that they are restricted?
