In France it slipped into legend after delighting long-haired teenagers in the '70s and '80s, but in Morocco the tireless moped spurts on, despite an invasion of cheaper Chinese scooters.The first models of the Peugeot 103 were made in France in 1971, intended for older people living in the countryside.No permit is required to drive the moped, which can be spotted at virtually every street corner in Morocco.Some models have been customized in new chrome colors.Morocco followed suit three years later when it shuttered its DIMAC-Peugeot plant in Casablanca.Nostalgic moped lovers are now forced to make do with an obsolete if beautiful catalogue of seven models priced from 7,400 dirhams ($740) for the orange 103 Classic to 10,600 dirhams for a Fox with a pointy nose.
