Yes I'm in England - the Lake District. Mopeds in UK used to have to be
under 50cc and have pedals. A long time ago this changed and now the law
defines a moped as under 50cc and incapable of more than 30mph. Mopeds can
be driven on a car driving licence. I'll scan a photo when I get chance to
take one so we all know what I'm talking about.

The BopII has the engine and shaft drive in unit - the whole assembly pivots
beneath a twin tube frame and has a single spring / damper. The oil and
petrol tanks are combined in one unit under the seat. The front suspension
is telescopic forks. The wheels are 10" and both brakes are drum. All the
controls are on the handlebars and comprise twistgrip & front brake on the
right and rear brake on the left. The bike is fitted with lights and
indicators. The speedo incorporates an oil warning light and the ignition
switch.
