• Love this thing!

    Actually, it has to be UNDER 50cc to qualify under most of the moped laws. So I looked this one up, and it is 48.8 cc (OK, let's call it 49cc). And supposedly legal mopeds cannot be able to exceed 50 kph (30 mph).

    However, in recent years, these under-50cc mopeds have fallen into the hands of serious tuners in Europe. Expansion chambers are "de rigueur", and that 30 mph top end is a thing of the long-distant past.

  • I had a friend in high school who had a Puch moped. He bored out the engine, and put in a smaller rear sprocket, and a free flow muffler. It was silver top tank model, and heavy for a moped. It didn't have much acceleration. But man, when it got up to speed, that sucker could hit 60mph. The heft of the thing made riding at 50-60 mph feel solid/planted and secure… Yeah, it was still a moped, but it hauled and was fun till we got hour driver's license 2 years later… Reminds me of a joke about being seen on a moped, heh, heh…
