By the way, what would be the correct name for such engines? In french it is "cyclomoteur", my dictionnary gives "scooter" as translation. So until now I put them in "scooter" category. Is there a better name for the english version? I guess that I can simply rename the french name to "scooter/cyclomoteur" since it is not really useful to split them in two categories.

They are called MOPED in the UK.!(Very simple .. cycle-like ... sometimes with pedal start.!)
Scooters are different ...like Vespa... Lambretta (..What the "MODS" use in Quadrophenia.!)

"Moped" is also the translation that the Harraps gives me. What's the US word that is used for them?

But confusingly, scooters are also sometimes referred to as Mopeds!

500cc! wants to ride once...but I do not want to imagine when braking.

'MODS' is the meaning of 'Moderns'. There is no relation of the word 'moped'.
'MODS' is mid60's younger generation's culture (or fashion style), was born in London and spread in the world.
They liked to wear the Italian-fashion. Vespa and lambretta are also one of fashion item.

US TV-movie "The Mod Squad", also means 'Mod squad' is 'Moderns squad'.

Peut-être... mais ça fait quelques jours que je doute au sujet de ce cyclomoteur. Et ce n'est décidément pas un Honda PA50 II. Peut-être même pâs un Honda... Pour le moment, je cherche... Je l'aurai, je l'aurai...

Ouf! Je savais...et j'ai trouvé (désolé, Jun...) un Derbi Variant!: http://www.terra.es/personal8/jmvelasc/vespi/derbi_variant77.jpg qui correspond en quasi tous points: forme du cadre, couleurs, position du cylindre... (P.S: 50cmc, pas 500!) :lol:

This is a 1979 Derbi Variant SL. This one has several arrangements made for the American market, like the side reflectors or the round light instead of the typical square light from Derbi.

I still own one of these Derbi Variant SL. It is a Heavy Duty machine. Derbi Knew how to make bikes to endure.
