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! Despite a chewed up first gear, it runs pretty well.

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.

Hobbit 1: The yellow screamer.

Hobbit 2: Stock-ish!

Hobbit 3: Stock-ish but slightly different!

Cimatti twin sport! Let's use that big stupid windshield it came with, and give it a moderate build.

Jawa SUPREME

Towny? QT50? What's this, nopeds?! SHAME.

DERBI DERBI DERBI DERBI - WORLD CHAMPION EDITION

The Avanti runs great and is super nice! It's sort of like if a kinetic and a garelli had a baby.

The Cosmo Stinger is real rough, but should be heaps of fun eventually.

The Peugeot 102 needs a lot of work. Begone, evil sewage water!

The 90s Jawa 210 is so very 90s. Radical!
