Mopeds for America! : Hello, I have begun to type this paper ,but for what reason you ask? Why, to spread joy, prosperity and savings to America. What joy is this you ask? Why, the moped of course!

They have a plastic shell and are designed to be used for moving around your city, or other cities but highway travel can be an issue, being that you will get ran over… They have a two-four stroke engine with 8-15 Horse Power, they are incredibly maneuverable come in a variety of sizes shapes and colors and are highly customizable.
