One of many new projects at the house here is mopeds. I'm installing conversion kits, and can't wait to begin testing these things out this spring.
Am also considering some imported mopeds available mail order off the internet. Small gasoline engines are the best option with which to reduce dependence on gasoline. It will provide a cheap alternative to public transportation, as weather permits. Mopeds I am working on now will be under 75 pounds.
Mopeds are a nice way to reduce parking congestion, are easy to store, safe.
