Steam moped

The Steam Car Club of Great Britain has a steam powered moped project by Roger Ulsky –

” My SteamPed started life as a Motobecane Moped which I obtained in a non running condition but with all the parts intact. I eventually want to build a steam car and decided this would be a good way to get my feet “dry” with steam land vehicles… With 650 F steam, the SteamPed will cruise at 20 MPH. In the interest of longevity, I run it at 500 F and get 15 MPH.” [via] – Link.
