Default Cheap mopeds..

Ok, so my Mum has agreed to buy me a scooter/moped and a laptop if I get into 6th form at my school.

The laptop is not the problem - found a nice DELL one..

It's the scooter that Im having problems with..

It has to be 49cc - and pretty cheap, it can be second hand, im not bothered about that..so I was just wondering if anyone knew any places I could get one cheap? Im in the UK, Ive checked out Autotrader, and a few shops, but they are all like 1500-2000, I was thinking more 600-700..second hand remember..

I know 99nasha knows about this stuff..so Im hoping he pops his head in here..

yes, 35 mph... thats abotu top speed for them, VERY annoying for any other drivers.. mopends, and cyclists are my pet hates when im driving, they really tick me off..

my diesel if efficient enough for me, i do about 250 miles a week, and go through about 15 worth of diesel..
