In foreign language classes, you get taught a lot of stuff like "to be" or "to eat" or "I like" or "I need" or "Where's the bathroom?" While those are all good phrases to know, here's your chance to learn the words that REALLY matter to you -- moped words.

This might also help people order parts from overseas vendors, or to translate things from foreign-language moped forums, since we all know that free online translators are somewhat lacking in their "moped parts and performance" vocabulary.

It is highly unlikely that this list will ever be completely filled in (but we're going the right way though!). If you're dying for a word that nobody has provided a translation for, the Word Reference dictionaries and forums are a good place to look or ask. Also, please remember that translation is often an inexact art and that there is probably more than one word for each of these parts or terms.

The English/Dutch/German/French list is first. Scroll down for the English/Italian/Spanish/?? version. Instructions for adding to this list can be found on the talk page.
