Has anyone in Chicago noticed the proliferation of these little mopeds dating from the ’70s + ‘80s running around the streets of Chicago? With their 50cc engines it means you don’t need a special license. My friend bought a nice track bike from a guy who was going to use the cash to buy a moped. Is there some moped gang in town? Are there gonna be bike / moped wars ala the rumbles in Brighton between the rockers & mods? I’m not surprised that Peter & The Test Tube Babies’ “Moped Lads” just popped into my head.
Any thoughts from you Chicago folks?
Are they another trend? Are track bikes out? Anybody score a deal?
When are they gonna jump the shark? Or have they already?
And what’s proper moped attire? White belts & trucker hats or parkas & porkpie hats??
