Special tools are the sort of things that makes me really wish there was a moped shop in town. I'd love to pay a little bit to borrow the special tool I needed, do my repair, and be on the road.
That's how it used to be with Vornkamp bike here in Kalamazoo. He was awesome about letting us use his tools and learning how to do it ourselves, rather than just paying him to do it.
Of course that mentality might of been some of the downfall of the business, but it sure puts Homer (the owner) in a high place in my mind.
