Exceptionally Graceful Moped

LinkFollowing yesterday's Italian motorcycle design victory, D+R reader Tarik points us to his Flickr photos of an exceptionally graceful French moped. The tank, the underseat kit, the teardrop arch on the rear fender, the sculpted chain guard - it is so beautifully, classically French. Mopeds can be embarrassing disasters, but this sheet metal is so successful that it allows you to forget the moped's damning curse - dorky pedals.
