My intent was for riding solo on my Puch. It can barley get to 35 mph. Adding a passenger would likely slow things down even more. So why the footpegs? Personally, I think they should be a mandatory accessory for all mopeds. I got these for $20 from Moped Division. It took about 10 minutes to install and adjust. Once in place, it gives the allusion of a bike that is designed for two people. Of course the long seat I have adds to the perception. In the end, these footpegs work well–especially when my son wants me to take him for a ride.
