Chicago mopeds

Jason Luther /

I was in Chicago this last weekend (Sunday-Tuesday) and was surprised at the number of mopeds and "mopeds" we saw. even my wife and daughter were on lookout. It seems the Honda ruckus types are very popular. However, when we were at the lincoln park zoo there were a few real mopeds. someone was flying by on a modded tomos sprint (no pedals, but close enough) with cafe bars and also there was a yellow ped, which my view was blocked by a bus [both on clark street], but if id have to guess id say a motobecane?.... anyway two-stroke/4 stroke/50cc were swarming the downtown

I'm actually in the process of converting my moped to a "moped." The quotations add 5 mph but you have to do some cutting/welding.

did you get that rigid frame back to cali max?

Re: Chicago mopeds

yeah, I was there last week. It's fucking amazing. I'm sure a part of it has to do with the 100 or so mopeds/nopeds Warbux has sold so far this year. It was amazing. And also, kinda weird. Like, who the hell are these kids? I bet half of them don't even know Moped Army exists.

Re: Chicago mopeds

The wheels are in motion on that one but I'm now convinced that the pedal crank we couldn't get off is WAY different than on my other puchs. dunno how I'm gonna get it off.

Re: Chicago mopeds

Most of the new kids give the moped wave of acknowledgment but there are a few people that act too cool.

Re: Chicago mopeds

Randos, I gotta use that.

Re: Chicago mopeds

that's what I call my drunken makeouts---randos.

Re: Chicago mopeds

Awesome, you actually have a name for that.

Re: Chicago mopeds

yes. and my name is the makeout bandit. i earned that from my detroit friends. i try to avoid living up to it as much as possible these days, what with my increasing age and such.

Re: Chicago mopeds

What does increasing age have to do with anything? Besides, arent we all increasing age? Duh.

Re: Chicago mopeds

don't "duh" me. of course we're all getting older, I just need to stop doing shit that freshman college girls do. shit, i still use my fake ID. and i hit on a 19 year old the other day. i'm well on my way to cougardom.

Re: Chicago mopeds

Just messin. Obviously you must like young'ns so why change what ya like.

Re: Chicago mopeds

they aint nothing wrong with messing around with 19 yr olds.

Re: Chicago mopeds

Just because they dont know about mopedarmy doesnt make them mopeders.. i didnt find this till a friend said google it, alot of people dont google there answers they call around or ask a mechanic.

Re: Chicago mopeds

thing is, i like mansons. as in charlies. this 19 year old looked 30+. i don't know what hormones the FDA has been putting in these kiddies' Gerber jars, but that shit turns a baby face into a chia pet.

Re: Chicago mopeds

ha. um, this is aimee on jeff's computer. YIKES.

Re: Chicago mopeds

i've never seen another moped in person EVER! i'm fucking serious. ok, the neighbor guys one that didnt run because it was ridden in sand and left to rot outside for 15 years.

i've never ever seen another running moped.
