I am from Europe. Exactly from Skopje, capitol of Macedonia.
I have Moped Army stickers on both my mopeds (Solex 3800 and ROG Pony Express with Puch E50 engine) and on my helmet.
But, I think that I'm the only one around here that knows about MA.
About the joke question, I think that I'm joke to some folks here but they are even bigger joke to me when I drive faster in the city traffic and consume much less fuel then them in their cars.
About the parts, we have here plenty new and cheap Tomos parts that can be fitted on Puch E50 and also plenty of Tomos moped on the streets. Two weeks ago I bought new Tomos piston with L type rings for less then 10US$ that fitted perfectly on E50. That's cool!
