Definitely looks like a girlie bike. Much like bicycles, doesn't have the middle frame so that's my guess as to why it's called the pop GAL

Looks like a Hair-Dresser's 2-wheeler with what appears to be the same drivetrain as the PW50 :ermm:

My guess.....it's a :ballerina: bike that goes POP if you rev it to hard? :bike:

The Belated Answer

Hi All,
the Pop Gal was so called because of the 'compact' mirror and place to store lip stick & other Girl stuff next to the speedo ... the idea was withdrawn as the hinge was below standard

But the MS50E was a good old tool ... as long as you remembered to keep your lippy in the box next to the speedo !
