Poor man's Hot-Rodding

I enjoy the family aspect of it. The lower cost and less regulations allow a person to buy a fleet of mopeds so the whole family can ride the country side or parks together. The lack of power doesn?t intimidate young or elderly riders so it turns into an enjoyable motorized bike ride without the sweat and cardiac arrest effects. They are the rubber necker's dream machine because they go slow enough that you can take inventory of everything in a farmers fence rows. They are the B.S.er?s dream because you can ride around town and catch neighbors outside for an ear bending

gab session, but still have enough speed to get you home late to give that sheepish grin and the ?I lost track of time? excuses.

Now on the flip side of the coin these little under powered wonders can be a tinker's dream. I enjoy taking a stock moped and Hot Rodding it. The hill you couldn?t make it over last week now becomes the goal of your modifications this week. Little changes to little engines make large performance gains that create large ego boosts. You can get the thrill of looking for antique parts that don?t normally break the budget. Best of all, you don?t need a three car garage to store three mopeds. Last but not least if bought in pairs, they make great mobil saw horses for deck repairs.
