 1952 - 2002. CELEBRATIONS !  Swedish MOPEDs 50 YEARS. 2003-11-19     
 
 
 

CELEBRATIONS !    THE Swedish MOPED 50 YEARS.    1952 - 2002.

1 July 1952 a law was passed in Sweden that made it possible to drive a bicycle with help engine without tax, driver license (age to drive min. 15 years old) or registration.

The max speed for this "type" of vehicle was set to 30 km/ hour and 0,8hp.

Most Swedish manufactures of two wheelers introduced 1952 a special moped (with the engine built-in the frame). This type of vehicle soon won terrine over the helpengines and in a few years the hulpmotor was a closed chapter. 

In 1954 the customer of a moped could chose of 30 - 40 different marks of so called "Whole-mopeds" (special built mopeds), Swedish and foreign.

The number of mopeds in Sweden where 1953 - 150.000, three years later an estimation of 400.000 mopeds, this year the population in Sweden were 7.234.664 persons (18 persons per moped)  and 1961 the number of mopeds had risen to 725.000. 

In Sweden today (2002) there is a quite big interest to drive and preserve OUR veteranmopeds. A "common" price of an "Oldtimer" ordinary model is 500-2000 SKr, 100 Swedish Krona = 10.82567 Euro witch is very reasonable. This makes the hobby of having a veteran moped  to a cheep "very enjoyable" pleasure.

 
 
 
 
 The word MOPED is a combination of the two words.
 
 

The word MOPED is a combination of the two words: Motor - Pedal. Some journalists on the Swedish motor magazine MOTOR were tired of all long descriptions of these types of vehicles and invented this short word 1952.

 

Är moped ett teleskopord, av motorvelociped, vilket påstås i flera ordböcker. Nej! Det riktiga ursprunget är mo(tor) + ped(al). 

Ordet skapades av motorjournalisten Harald Nielsen vid tidningen Motor 1952. På den tiden var det obligatoriskt med pedaler på motordrivna cyklar.

Det svenska ordet moped har lånats in i tyskan, norskan, engelskan (mo-ped, senare utan bindelsträck), finskan (mopedi), estniskan(mopeedi). På danska heter det däremot knallert.

  En RIKTIG moped! 1956 mod.
