Serving Charleston Since 1912

Our Story – The idea came to Jordan after learning about his great grandfather who owned the first Schwinn bicycle dealership in the city of Charleston, Brauer’s Bike & Hobby. The shop opened in 1912 and was located where the College of Charleston Bookstore is now. Brauer’s Bike & Hobby rented bicycles to sailors with a motor attached to them. The shop closed but after collaborating with Dave, Port City Moped LLC was formed and will serve the low country as its premier moped rental and sales company.

With the increase in transportation costs, lack of parking and inability to get around comfortably. Port City Moped strives to meet the ultimate goal of providing a safe, fuel efficient moped for individuals that are looking for a reliable means of transportation. Don’t hog the road, just ride it!

Meet Jordan Chaplin 

Born and raised on James Island, South Carolina. Being a Lowcountry native and a 2011 graduate from the College of Charleston, Jordan knows the local area like the back of his hand. Jordan continually strives to serve the Charleston area, just as his great grandfather did back in 1912 when he opened the first Schwinn bicycle dealer in the city.

According to Jordan, there is no better place to call home than Charleston. He plans on passing on all of his knowledge about the city to his customers and show them why they should always come back to Port City Moped.
