Ya know, Locker (can I call U that?) that there's websites for these dudes too.
Mopedarmy.com comes to mind. These dudes are HARDCORE enthusiasts. Not modern scooters or Vespas either. The pedal-start, true mopeds from the 70's n' 80's. These guys have more tricks n' farlkes to keep those lil' boogers running than we do. Lawnmower carb upgrades n' such. They make MacGuyver look like he's in the dark ages. They travel all over, making countless and cheap or free repairs along the way, and have a blast doing it. They get 100 mpg, use bicycle tubes, mix their own gas when the oil injectors fail, held together with bailing wire n' duct tape, etc. They bore them out (or just .001" hone) every 15 thousand miles and keep motoring along at a blistering 24 mph, 30 downhill. LOL I'm kinda envious at what they can come up with!
Same mentality as here, but they do more with less.
Sounds like you ran into a couple of them. I've seen one here and there too here in Indiana. If it's 50cc's or less yer legal so they are popular with teens and the DWI crowd too.
Hey, ride 'em if ya got 'em no matter what it is. They have the same love of knees in the breeze. "Two wheels, One love" says it all.
