What is a Motoped?

The Motoped is a motorized bicycle at a great price. It uses a 49cc to 155cc 4-stroke horizontal OHV motor and downhill mountain bike parts mounted to a custom frame and swing arm. Motopeds are street legal in most states and can be easily modified for more speed and power to your liking.

Why a Motoped?

Fun to ride / Affordable / Excellent Gas Mileage (80-110 mpg) / Environmentally Friendly 4-Stroke Motor / Very Quiet / Low Cost Transportation / Minimal Maintenance

Responsive Design

The Motoped has a patented system (patent 7,753157) that combines the engine drive with the pedal drive through a jack-shaft located in the swing-arm pivot. This means that the rear wheel drive chain is not loosening and tightening as the rear suspension travels through its arc. Also, this allows for one chain going to the rear wheel unlike most motorized bikes that use two chains to the rear wheel.
