We spotted this 1980s Motobecane 51v at 1977 Mopeds just before they closed up shop in The Mission to go online-only. Equipped with a 50cc cylinder and a bunch of other engine hop-up parts, it'll do about 50mph. Dan Kastner, a member of the infamous bathroom burnout gang, uses this as one of his race bikes. He's wearing tennis shoes in the pictures because, in moped racing, you actually have to pedal.
