MOPED! if it doesn't have pedals its a scooter or motorcycle) They had very small engines and did 60 while weighing a ton as compared to these. Plus engine tech is far improved, bottom line is I am sure it will happen with Jim on it, now I remember why I just started doing my work instead of being on the forum because of all the ney sayers and knowitalls saying you can't do that blah blah blah, human ingenuity will beat all ney sayers always has always will!
Well the MOPEDS were variated 1 to 2 speed drive trains, most were reed valve motors,Belt driven drive tranes, a lot better intake tracks(carb.`s and intake), tranfer ports were better/bigger.....A much better after market parts program....IMO these china motors aren`t too much like the MOPED motors but I guess if you Franken build one it can be pumped up to run like a moped.....JMO.....
