NO PEDALS, NO FUN

Now living in Ann Arbor, MI. We've moved around a lot.

Blood Drive III, IV, V (2005-2007)
CBBG11 (2020)

The dumb single speed 103 LSU1 has been upgraded with MOAR VARIATOR and other fancy parts. It lives again! Vive la résistance! Oh wait, now there's a second one that's getting a super sweet water cooled setup.

The Magnum MK II runs! Complete za50 rebuild + kit done, with lots of grinding. Wait let's rebuilt it again.

The Maxi lives and flies . Bright headlight is bright, completely custom wiring harness is rad; so many zip ties. New axles and buttery smooth sealed bearings, yeah! Puch polini + estoril + vm20 is kinda scary.

The orange Bravo Super Deluxe is far too nice of a bike for me. Help, I need an adult.

The red Bravo has been cut asunder, and rebuilding commences!

The Garelli is a rust heap extraordinaire.

The Tomos literally has a die instead of an axle nut. Wut. https://www.instagram.com/p/CE43JAKHuTS/ - LOL tomos. Motor rebuild done, time to get the rest of the shit together.

The Newport is rebuilt and slowly getting derusted. Why do I keep buying seized mopeds.

The General is mid-rebuild 80s retro-futurist style.

The mystery Tomos is an A3 motor on an undated A35 frame!

Batavus? Slowavus, but still rad.

Jawa 207? Let's see just how dumb we can make this.

Jawa 210? ULTRASPORT

M O N Z A!

Oh, the Grande. Oh, oh my. So lovely. It's like riding a cloud.

Hondas?

Yet another maxi; this one won't be mine for long.
