Larry, It must be the name. I'm a Larry too. I checked out that Metropolitan. Very very cool. Very retro! Have you checked out the Yamaha Vino? I saw a site that shows you how to make a couple of adjustments to get the Vino (50cc) up to 45mph. I'm personally looking very hard at the Aprilia Scarabeo 150. Very retro as well but capable of 80mph. I test rode the Aprilia Scarabeo 50 (50cc) last wednesday... WOW!! very quick. Check em out.
