Apparently this is like a "thing": supercharging mopeds.
Here is a fine looking specimen in Switzerland with what appears to be a homemade centrifugal blower.
I'm not sure if this is real - a guy doing 90mph on a moped:

Need I reiterate my love for REAL bikes. Riders, not show bikes. FONZICHI is about as real as you get.
Spotted in Carroll Gardens in all it's glory.
I like this bike. Mid-size SOHC fours are cool in any style. This one eats nails for breakfast.
The gods of war are much pleased with Fonzichi.
