To me, that'd be the first thing to set alarm bells ringing.

I know someone who has a 50cc CPI scooter. Its nothing special but it seems to get the job done. Personally, I would avoid as I can see getting parts might be quite difficult and the build quality probably isnt great.

A mate has the bike that you speak of.

Its fine and has never let him down and I have friends with other bikes (including myself) that are worse.

I believe CPI actually stands for Chinese Power Industries but don't quote me on that.

There was a CPI for sale at a race meet once. It had been tricked out and looked awesome. To me, it looked as though you'd be struggling to find something much nicer in a 50.
