The little bike that could


Really nothing. A brake lamp went out, 5$. And brakes were getting pretty low by the time I sold the little guy.

General Comments:

Great bike to have around town and enjoy on weekends. Literally sips gas and always brings smiles out. Looks like a bicycle, but you don't have to pedal.

Very easy to drive and maintain. Actually there is little to none maintenance. Oil and gasoline are mixed, so add 2T and premium (yeah I could afford premium on it) and you are good to go. Overall the FA50 is a great starter, town person bike.

Would you buy another motorcycle from this manufacturer? Yes
