It's interesting to see motorvelocipede is the ancestor of the word moped. Or did everyone else already know that?

It is interesting, I didn't know.

Ainslie, what a beautiful pic, well preserved!

Greenocks registrations started in 1903 with the take up of registrations being quite slow for the first two years most places was about 50 per year.
So 94 should be within the first two years.

OK, thanks. Clearly with a low number like 94 it was going to be one of the earlier ones, but I didn't find anything on how many were issued each year either.
