Mopeds before the internet

I love to think about what it would have been like to be of moped age in 1977, wishing to have one and going to your local library to check out any books they had on mopeds so you could read all about them, and then buying a book on mopeds just so you could convince your mom she should totally buy you a moped.  You pick out the one you want (Puch Maxi Sport, $525) and she finally buys it for you.  You get to enjoy it for about a week because you mixed your oil at 128:1.  Where ever this book came from, there is a seized Maxi Sport in the garage.
