I can only dream of a supplemental retirement income like that! Riding and making money! Whooooppeeeeee!!! don-ohio (:^)
So does this guy live in C-bus? Have you met this guy or something? Ha the long arm of Disney has blocked viewing the video. Oh, and I would be down for selling ice cream too @Don Ohio, its a great Idea! (edited)
It wasmt really unique, it was a moped produced by pryer industries, it SHOULD NOT COST $7000 PER BIKE.
The Shark's were right.
Walt from the grave ftw
idk him I just watched the episode and got a kick out of the guys relentlessness as a mopedder
'I need the money so I can make more mopeds'
'How is this not unique?'
I would think this could be done way cheaper than 7k, and wouldn't really need pryer setup. Fab up some insulated saddle bags, and little dry ice. Run out of product run to Krogers buy some more. Gotcha @ringadingding. (edited)
Specialty vending products tend to be expensive. The two wheeled push carts are nearly two grand.
^ true, and if you need a permit to vend your equipment needs to meet certain standards "NSF" I think it is, and they will inspect you. More to it than it looks. (edited)
I hope you guys can see the whole video of it, daily motion has it but it plays the wrong episode /:
I'd upload it elsewhere but it's large file and I don't want Disney after me
Use Hola! https://hola.org/
VPN to the USA and watch that shit
The hook here is the moped with ice-cream, and the dude/dudette selling it. The box that ice-cream is carried in is the main source for expenses. Get rid of it. I use insulated bags to transport cold/frozen items every week at the grocery store. You get pizzas delivered to you in disgustingly dirty insulated bags. Your not cooking, hence the permit/inspection nightmare. The ice cream is pre packaged, using insulated bags, inspection would be nothing. Buy a permit to street vend and have at it. Guys do it with water, and a cooler, and a vending permit/or not, and seem to do very well. I know I buy water from them all the time. (edited)
Can you imagine that thing with a kit and pipe and rollin at 50?
Use a second tomos engine to power the a/c compressor. Who needs dry ice?
I met this dude years ago at a street fair... he mentioned he was looking for partners + royalties gave me a $10k quote @_@ No Thanks!
$3k commission aint bad tho right
You can run a freezer with a deep cycle battery and an ac inverter for 4 to 6 hours depending on the size. I speak from expirience with both moped ice cream vending as well as using a VW Vanagon. Dry ice is lightest simplest option.
^Pics of Vanagon? Along with mopeds another fave of mine.....
Man I have some buried somewhere. My first post on MA was with my Ice Cream QT50 Deathwish ped.
Cool, if you have some would love to see, I used to own a few, 3 Baywindows two, I miss them, but they are too expensive to keep going for only a summer vehicle. :( i would love one with the 2.0 injected INLINE engine swap, but Big $$, and most around here are rustbuckets anymore.
