What's your Favorite "Extra" moped thing?

Dan (high idle) Conway /

You know what I'm talking about, the little cherry on top.

It might be the Garelli with the rare front fork rack, or the Maxi-K with Walls. Or if you have bad taste... the Commuter with the stupid orange flag off the back. But you know what I mean, that little special thing that sets a particular moped apart from the rest.

My favorite at the moment I think is that little fin that goes on top of the front fender of some Euro bikes. If someone has one for sale or could tell me what they are called I'd be delighted to get one for my 103...

Re: What's your Favorite "Extra" moped thing?

Talk to somebody from the Netherlands. There is a yellow one and an orange one, depending on the speed of the moped.

that "fin" you're talking about is a license plate. use the google machine to search for front fender license plates.

Re: What's your Favorite "Extra" moped thing?

My favorite extra mopd thing is 6 more mopeds.

Re: What's your Favorite "Extra" moped thing?

THREE things.......one being the long,extendable rear rack on the Sebrings, and the other being the HUGE windshields on my peds.

On my StreetMate,I am extra proud of my auxiliary 1.3 gal tank in the storage comp't and it's operating sensing unit to my Harley UltraGlide GAS GAUGE.YES! don-ohio (:^)

Re: What's your Favorite "Extra" moped thing?

I like my streetmate's faux top tank quite a bit, there's actually a lot of room in there.

If you think mopeds don't need windshields, and extra hauling space on a rear rack, and extra gas on a Streetmate which has only .92 gal of which only about .80 gal will come out, then yes, I'm weird to you.

And the gas gauge is great..........I can tie both tanks together and watch my total,or just monitor the extra tank,which I normally do. don-ohio

kreidlers don't need "extras".

That fin is not a license plate, its a way for people to tell if you have a 25kmph (orange) or 45 kmph (yellow) moped.

Up to 2005 mopeds didnt need license plates in the Netherlands, just insurance plates. These insurance plates looked the same for both types of mopeds, so its a way for cops to tell what type of moped you had.

Since 2005 we have license plates which are blue for 25kmph mopeds, and yellow for 45kmph mopeds, rendering the front fin useless.

Re: What's your Favorite "Extra" moped thing?

For scooters the plates were changed to stickers somewhere in the nineties.
