My moped obsession started in summer of 2007. I did not own a car at the time and I did not like taking the bus (mass transit in LA sucks). My first moped was a 1978 AMF Roadmaster that I bought in August of 2007. I gave up on it figuring it was a waste of time restoring it. I picked up my second moped purchased January 2008 a 1978 Motobecane 50VLA that is now a 1979 because I replaced the frame. It is a work in progress. I believe that when it is finished it will be my crowning achievement. my 3rd moped is a 1980 Tomos Bullet, I purchased it in October of 2008. This bike is great. I also own a 1977 Puch Newport. It was bought from an old high school friend of mine. He could not get it running the way he wanted so he sold it to me. I was a member of Club 55 of Orange county. I am now a proud member of the Slow Magic, Taking back the night since 2010
