The term Moped Army also refers to a graphic novel of the same name authored by Paul Sizer.

The Moped Army is a group of avid moped riders, originally formed as the Decepticons in 1997. Eventually, as other moped riders showed an interest in creating their own branches associated with the Decepticons, the Moped Army was formed, with the Decepticons summarily becoming a branch of the Moped Army.

The organization is comprised of self-governing branches which implement their own criteria regarding membership and organize their own activities.

The Moped Army recognizes three classes of members:

  • Members, who are active within their branch
  • Scouts, who have left the geographic boundaries of their branch, and
  • Honorary, who have helped the development of a branch without necessarily having become a member.

Each branch, further, keeps a list of retired and deceased members.

Current Branches

Previous Branches

Older Affiliations

Before it was known as Moped Army the Decepticons expanded under the name Decepticon Army. Members were affiliated using code names based on the first letter of their city and area code. These affiliations were not as autonomous or structured as today's branches.

  • K6-16 (Kalamazoo, Michigan)
  • C6-17 (Cambridge, Massachusetts)
  • L9-09 (LaVerne, California)
  • S2-06 (Seattle, Washington)
  • S2-07 (Springvale, Maine)

Unaffiliated Gangs and Groups

These groups consist of riders who are not Moped Army riders. Some of them are more official and are attempting to become official Branches, while others are groups of friends who just ride.
