"Back in then days before unleaded gas there was an unleaded fuel sold for camping stoves and lanterns. This was known as White Gas. It was not formulated as a motor fuel and would cause trouble with engines. This sticker was to keep cheap-ass moped owners from ruining their engines trying to save money. If the bike didn't say not to use White Gas, they could claim the factory never warned them and try to get a free moped from them through their ignorance.
Todays unleaded is a formulated motor fuel and since a 99.99% of mopeds don't have valves, lead was never required.
The 0.01%? Indian, which made the a four-stroke along with the Honda that used a motor-wheel.
