be impressed with them is if they had multi-rocket capabilities; but they don't.<<
That's funny simply because of a stunt we tried with the 74 Tomos-Koper just before we scrapped it for parts....
We bought a model rocket launching kit, and bolted the back plate to the front end just below and to the right of the headlight, and attached an Alpha to it (type of model rocket, mind) with a C-8-0 engine, but instead of the chute, with filled it with black powder (do NOT try this at home kids!) and wired the igniter to the horn.
We did have to cut the guide line cause it stuck out too far, but after that it stayed on the bike and didn't get in the way as we drove it to local dump also used as shooting gallery.
It fired fine, as long as the bike was stationary, was reasonably accurate, and made a quite satisfying boom when it went off (we shoulda used a shorter engine for it though..) - so i guess if you really, really wanted to - you could build some kind of halfass MLRS for a 'ped...but why ?
I also debate the issue over the tank, it seems some folks have never heard of molotov cocktails - the afghans did it to soviet T-72s from horseback, and it did work...but mopeds were never intended as a combat vehicle to begin with.
Most 'ped riders just wanna ride and enjoy themselves, but if repeatedly hassled by folks who think mopeds are easy targets, and wanna feed thier little egos by hassling them - yes, mopeders can get ugly....just like bikers but on a reduced scale, and tend to swarm on the annoyance like a pack of angry bees.
I challenge anyone who thinks of a moped as a joke to ride one for a day through a major city, you do that and come back in one piece - feel free to whine.
Till then, here's a sock, you know what to do with it.
