Re: Where do you work on your moped?

I am building bikes in a small shed in the forest haha. No constant 120v power but I wired (4) 6v golf cart batteries in series/parallel with an inverter. Solar keeps them charged and I have a kerosene heater keeping me warm-ish. Also have my RV parked here so it's were I'm livin and that beast has a nice new Onan generator. The generator runs my small welder with ease. Sometimes I'll work on bikes inside my motorhome too. Just make due with whatever ya got I guess.

Re: Where do you work on your moped?

I have worked on my ebike at work but unfortunately, it's not a place to do much more on a moped, let alone leave anything there. Looking for a place where I can leave my stuff because it's going to be a long term project.

I have looked into a few local makerspaces in the area but nothing fruitful yet. Thanks.

Re: Where do you work on your moped?

Very interesting, in a good way.

Re: Where do you work on your moped?

I thought of some ideas which might work. Rent a parking space at a storage facility and put up a canvas gazebo or storage trailer. Second idea would be to rent a seasonal space at a campground and put up an extra canvas gazebo. Just don't make too much power tool noise. I rented a garage in Queens for 100.00 a month once. Now I have an outdoor parking spot 12x25 ft at a storage facility for 60/month on long island. I chain my bike up there and noone says anything when I buzz around the storage facility every weekend.

Re: Where do you work on your moped?

I work on my bikes in 3 different places but the Swoop shop is my favorite for weekend wrenching and hangs.

Re: Where do you work on your moped?

I envy all of you guys with multiple people wrenching in the same place, that's cool. My moped life is pretty solitary. Trying to get to more rallys though for the hangs.

Re: Where do you work on your moped?

Solitary workspace sounds appealing to me too. I will eventually plan to build a car on my own.

Re: Where do you work on your moped?

Jealous. That’s exactly what I’m looking for, but there’s only motorcycle-centric spots in NYC and as of right now, it’s too pricey or very limited.

Re: Where do you work on your moped?

Thanks. I’ve called a bunch of local storage areas and as of right now, there’s only one solid lead. We’re specifically looking for indoor as the seasons get colder, and we’ll need shelter. For the spring, my buddy had a courtyard we can work off of, or there’s just more options.

The dream would be to find a $100 spot in queens like yours. 2 of the buddies including myself are in queens so that would be ideal.

Re: Where do you work on your moped?

My livingroom is my "workshop" and its a moped mess.

(Fyi, my livingroom is probably smaller than most of your kitchens, and mine has the kitchen in it)

I live in Downingtown PA and have a very large heated and cooled outbuilding workshop (and music studio.) I am not -that- far from NYC and you are welcome to come here and work on your ride. I have all the tools needed and then some.

Re: Where do you work on your moped?

Nice, I have a small apt too, and I keep an average of 4 bikes in here, (see pic earlier in thread) They are out in the summer, but our winters are rough, and I don't have a garage. (My kitchen is tiny as F**k) ;) In the pic the Crown Vic was running and heating up, the blue truck next to it is mine too, but that is how much snow we got in a single event.(edited)

My shed is 60ft from the house. I added 2 30amp breakers to the house then ran an underground 220v and an overhead 220v. One line runs the air compressor the other plugs in the heat/ac. The exhaust fan is used a lot for clearing out smoke and fumes. It blows out the ridge vent. Every once in a while my wife wants the shit out of the way so she can park in there. Luckily that only lasts 10 minutes. Haa

If you start having trouble on your way to Downingtown I'm 61 miles south of New York City on the way

Re: Where do you work on your moped?

As I consider abandoning my life up here in the northwest more and more, I keep coming back to Ohio in my mind. Communal moped shop? Check...reasonable housing cost and possibility to own within reason maybe? Yup

Why the hell diddnt I buy a house here 10 years ago. House I was looking at then was 25k just recently sold for over 150...I coulda had my own toilet man.

I almost moved to Arkansas last year when I saw serviceable homes selling for under 20k. Then my meemaw let me know that it's basically the meth capital of the country.....plus, I can't leave meemaw

Hey you look in the mountainous parts of PA where you have well water and sewage fields and you can get a place with 10 acres 40 Grand and have the mineral rights...
