'The Diddly-bops and the Gooseneck Handlebars'.

Bermuda was known at one time for the Diddly Bops- a bunch of young kids hopping up their mopeds (often called a "blade" ) and running all over the island.

Diddly-Bops were the Cyrus, Zundapp, Moped, Velo Solex and the Motom modified, with gooseneck handlebars, the long buddy seat and with the modified sprocket ration of, a 14 tooth sprocket on the front and a 28 tooth sprocket on the rear wheel.
