    cafe moped

    So here's what I'm thinking. I just moved to Boston, where it's fairly well impossible to park just about anywhere. I want to be able to park on the sidewalk, which means I need a moped. What I'm after is a moped with a caffable frame - think something I could coax into looking like the Dream 50R. I was looking at the Puch Magnum:



    ...but the frame's a little on the odd side, not to mention that I'd really prefer a 4-stroke as I have a much better idea of what to do with them. Any suggestions on machines to look out for?

    Can you title a Derbi GPR as a moped in Mass? You can in Iowa. Lots of hop up parts available. I bet you could figure out a streetfighter/retro look for it.

    Or like Lil Bull said, a Suzuki DRZ400sm(supermoto).

    In Europe the hot Cafe "moped" is older Honda SS50's. Come with a Cafe looking tank and a five speed manual gearbox. Punch them out to 70cc (they make the big bore cylinders marked 49cc to remain "moped" legal) and they go pretty good.
