Forget Bird, Lime, Skip, Spin and Scoot. This is the Autoped Motor Scooter, a motorized scooter by the Autoped Co. of America. Like the electric scooters of today, the Autoped Motor Scooter was built as cheap means to cut through traffic congestion in the big city. It had a 1.5 hp engine, weighed 110 pounds and sold for about $100. You could also buy lights and a horn at an extra cost. As if we needed more evidence of how the auto industry stifled progress in this country.
