There is something incredibly sexy about this vintage bike: its classic shape, petite frame, the tricky choice between baby blue and minty green, and, of course, the way it makes you feel on every ride. Tomos was founded in the Slovenian city of Koper in the early 1950s. Their classic moped has been unavailable in the UK for the last 30 years, but now it’s back. The bike has a 49cc, air-cooled engine and should reach a top speed of 28mph – perfect for an inner-city commute. Kick-start it (another of the bike’s romantic attributes) and grab the chopper-like handlebars to begin your ride. It weighs only 55kg, is extremely fuel and cost-efficient, and you know you’ll look great on it.
