In the beginning of the nineties Jens Lindgård and Petter Lindgård played horns in a number of local bands around Malmö. In 94 Jens and Petter took up guitar and drums and started to play pop songs together with David, who Petter had met at a jazz school. After some time an eight track demo was recorded and in the early spring of 96 the Mopeds were signed to the new label Vibrafon.

Following releases were the three track singles "Life's too short to hurry" and "Kid is alright" and in early 98 their classic first album: "The hills are alive with the sound of mopeds". The album was also released in Japan, where Lizard got radio rotation.

In the spring of year 2000 the bridge between Sweden and Denmark was ready and during the fall that same year Crunchy Frog and the Mopeds started making plans for a new release. The first Moped CD to leave the Copenhagen pop centre was "Steppin' on fire", followed by the 2001 album "the Land of the three". The single "Dina Tried Her Silverbow" got a video made by the danish duo "Spild af tid". The video was not played at MTV because of too much sex, drugs, alcohol and Strobolights. They had to recut it 4 times then MTV played it after 9 pm. After this record it took 4 years to finish a new one. During this time the mopeds built a new studio and started to work more seriously as producers and engineers for other artists.

Jens and Petter are well known session musicians and horn arrangers. Their horn section, Hello Bobbadee Horns, can be heard on recordings with bob hund, the Cardigans, Eggstone, Tom Jones, Roxette, Ulf Lundell, st Etienne, and many more.

David is exept from the mopeds playing and developing the art of freeform jazz. He also have recorded and mixed jazz records with Plunge, Mattias Carlsson abossa electrica, Miriam Aida and others.
