Charlie's Angels... On their rented 1960's era Modpeds....!

“Get'cher motor runnin'

Head out on that highway

Lookin' for adventure on what ever comes our way”...

On the left, and riding a Kreidler Moped, is SP/4 Ron Daum of Alpha Section. And to the right, sittin' on his Zweirad Union Victoria Moped is SP/4 Dale Ritchie, TTR/TRR Operator of the IFC.

Kreidler Moped, built by Kreidlers Metall- und Drahtwerke (Metal & Wire Works), went out of business in 1982. Kreidler was also successful in Grand Prix Mortorcycle racing, winning 8 World Championships in the 50cc Class.

Zweirad however, is still in production. To read more about them click on the links above.
