Not A moped at all, but to me, It reminds me of the spirit of The old VW beatle.
Here is a bunch of photos of the "Car" I'm talking about.
Here is the inside:
It Runs On a 200CC single cyl honda motorcycle engine or a two cyl hnda 650cc (50 miles top speed and 72mpg for the 250, and 65mph top speed 70mpg for the 650)
Here is the motor, looks easy to work on:
Its also avalible as a sedan
Here are a few more photos of them:
They are 3 wheeled, and classified as motorcycles. that excludes them from all the "bloat" modern cars have. No computers, no ABS, No airbags, no tire pressure monitors, and no OBD system.
Just a car, And a cheap one at that. They cost between 4500 and 6000.
Ok, so they are not as good looking as a smart car, not as fast as a Mini , and don't handle like a GTI, but they are Simple little beasts, offer a engine set that is abundant and cheap to repair, can be modified with out fear of emmisions tests, and are REALLY good on gas.
Do you think these will sell here? I've already placed an order for truck with the 650cc engine. and can't wait to start tinkering.
The reason I post this up here is Most car drivers are hands off. they take it in for oil changes, and everything else, but Moped owners are hands on. they don't mind getting into it.
This little car appeals to me on that level. Its a simple design with some limitations (just like our Mopeds) that seems to have great potential.
Let me know you thoughts!
