Got to ride a friends' newly acquired 1985 Suzuki FA50. As far as I know, its a single speed noped, no cvt i'm pretty sure. Two smoke 49cc. Friend picked it up for $75-100, he just brought it over today so we could put on new tubes and tires.

It needs some fuel tap work, and desperately needs new brakes. You can clamp down on those effers and it barely slows down. Dragging your shoes on the ground does much more! Aside from that, this thing accelerates pretty hard! I wouldn't be afraid to ride one during the 50cc true grits ride, although it could stand to be geared taller for open roads.

Just a picture from Google, don't have a picture of his bike.

It is actually a lot of fun, makes me want to get a scooter. This is a perfect introduction to motorcycling for him, aside from the nonfunctional brakes.
