Mopeds have a new sexiness, invoking nostalgia associated with an era of free love and lack of limit on movement. Economically intelligent in a comically commercial consumer climate, mopeds achieve upwards of 100 mpg and apparently produce less of the toxic and harmful emissions our prized gas powered automotive vehicles are strapped with. The ultimate mode of transport for the fit and forward moving, mopeds are destined to emerge as the responsible and daring alternative to big bodied 4 seaters. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CStVNCsePS0
