I'm not sure why we anyone thinks a Metropolitan is going to be much (if any) faster than an Express or a Spree.

I've ridden them all, and there's not much noticeable difference in takeoff or top speed. Plus, anyone who has a Metropolitan is convinced they are worth their weight in gold, so you'll pay a premium for it. If you have even passing familiarity with a typical two-stroke engine, they're also super easy to work on and mechanically bomb-proof.
