Motorized bike! (Cleveland, OH)

This thing is way too much fun, but for various reasons I haven't been riding it lately. Maybe one of y'all will want to.
Electra Cruiser1 frame, Chinese 49cc 4-stroke engine (Honda clone, starts, idles, runs just fine, as of 10 this morning), Grubee belt drive (not some ebay piece of crap), KMC chain (no stretchy), Sturmey-Archer front drum for style points, Sunlite springer fork ditto, Felt Thick Brick 24x3 tires, rear disc brake.
Needs a new battery to run the lights. Other than that it's ready to go. Speedo is optimistic, reads 30 @25mph.
Leather dispatch bag, homemade muffler, Cloud 9 saddle. If this thing doesn't make you smile you're dead inside. Tops out around 25 mph, will climb a 6% grade. I've put maybe 300 miles on it, all the bugs are worked out. Built with my usual CDO (like OCD, but in alphabetical order) attention to detail. No oil consumption or excessive blowby.
Can be pedaled in an emergency, but it's a 100-pound bike. It'll work your ass. Spare parts included.
I'd like to get $750, which is about half of what I've got in it. Make me an offer. This is only posted on Oppo, if I don't sell it here I'll just keep it.
In most states this counts as a moped. Check your state's laws, or ignore at your peril.
