The Motoped Survival Bike: "…baddass TreeHugger alternative to a car. "

"So why is this on TreeHugger? Well, The Motoped Survival is a motor-assisted bicycle that gets up to 160 miles to the gallon, and the 49CC motor will take it up to 500 miles on a three gallon fill-up. It has racks and tie-on points that can carry a lot of gear when it's bug-out time, and it is a whole lot easier than pushing a shopping cart like Viggo had to do in The Road.
It's not a horrible polluter like my old two-stroke Solex moped was; with its Smart Carb fuel system, the manufacturer claims that you can reduce your carbon footprint by as much as 70% compared to the usual small engine in recreational products. At 120 pounds it is a lot heavier than a regular bike, but you can still pedal it.…"

"…Or you could just go camping, or have the coolest looking moped in town. I know I am being totally TreeHugger incorrect here, but this is a thing of beauty, and looks quite practical. Yes, an electric bike is greener but there's no range anxiety here. And at 160 MPG with low emissions, it's a baddass TreeHugger alternative to a car. It's also a thing of beauty at $2499."
