At one point, everybody wanted or wants a top tank. When I first was in the market for a moped, I didn't want a top tank. Maybe because it didn't have the step through originality of most mopeds, or it just looked too much like a motorcycle. Apparently I'm not the only one that thought this. The top tank look definitely grew on me as it came into style. Did any if you not like top tanks at first? I still love my step through more than my top tank.
