1957 Grand Moped from Denmark

Available on eBay at a starting price of $500, this 49cc 2-stroke proves that riding a moped does not unequivocally mean that you are a dork.

I once owned a Puch Maxi-Luxe moped for a short period of time and still regret selling it. Plucky and torque-y, it was a modest vehicle in stature alone as the Austrian build quality was amazing. Naively, I recently tried to relive those halcyon days spent cruising my neighborhood at 28 MPH by purchasing a Tomos moped that had been crashed into the back of a truck.
