The Biggest Dang Electric Moped I Have Ever Seen

First of all, a brief lesson on the difference between a moped and a scooter.

The term "moped" is a contraction of the words "motor" and "pedals". So, if it does not have pedals, it is not a moped. Okay, as a scooterist, I got that off my chest.


 Last week, there was a Mesquite Hugger post about microbuses that featured a link to one of my absolute favorite ev conversions -  Bob Graves 1966 VW Microbus. (Sigh)

Well, it seems Mr Graves is not a one-trick pony, as is evidenced by the beast in the next photo: 

I mentioned it to Grizz and Rusty over coffee, and decided to share it with all you!

May you never insult a scooterist or mopedder with the wrongful identification incident. (Both crowds get quite violent on the subject.) And may you have a great day!
