There were moped articles in every magazine from Newsweek to Glamour.
They were popular with men and women, with the young and the old (and the very old, who liked to tool around retirement communities).
We had to slake our thirst for this kind of machine with motor scooters and electric bikes. Then in 1974, after a heavy industry lobby, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration relaxed the safety standards for mopeds. Laws varied from state to state, but basically, the U. moped’s maximum speed was set between 20 and 30 miles an hour, and drivers were forbidden to enter major highways.
The consumer appeal was easy to grasp: The moped was cheap, very cheap.And in a nation delirious about all sorts of moving vehicles and the trappings thereof (truckers and CBs, the Dukes of Hazzard and CHi Ps, go-carts and slot-cars) the fun little moped fit right in.
