Mopeds were first introduced in the 1950�s, though they were nothing more than regular bicycles with engines attached to either the front or the back. Some mopeds were derived from motorcycles instead of augmented from bicycles. And there were other bicycles that also had motors, but they had lower power, and so were merely categorized as motorized bicycles. The sources of the early mopeds is evident in the name itself, which refers to a vehicle that operates with a motor as well as by pedal. So vintage mopeds would be those mopeds that look and are like bicycles except with the motor attached to the wheel.
Vintage mopeds are currently enjoying a surge in popularity. This means that there are more clubs, groups, dealerships, websites, and classifieds dedicated to buying and selling vintage models, moped parts, and of course, talking about experiences and swapping stories. One of the reasons of their popularity is just that they look nice. They are extremely distinctive, and they mix nostalgia with a wonderful sort of practicality, especially these days as gas prices rise higher and higher. A short commute is made shorter with a moped, and though they don�t reach very high speeds because they don�t have powerful engines, they are very convenient for students and professionals alike. They also don�t take a lot of gas. Older mopeds are a great combination of versatility, style, practicality, and nostalgia. Even younger people who aren�t alive in the sixties and seventies will appreciate the older style and the throwback to classic design.
