Last week I received a call from my buddy Ken at the local Ace Hardware. It seems that a father and son had came in looking for things for a Gadabout they were restoring. Ken told them about me and he wanted to know if it was ok to give them my contact info.
The kid was restoring the bike that was his Grandfather's on his mother's side and needed pedal arms, tires, tubes, the usual. I gave him suggestions on local places for tires and tubes, and although I needed the pedal arms that I had from Treats for one of my bikes, I felt it was more important that he have them now and I could buy more at a later time.
How cool is it to help somebody restore a moped that three generations of the same family, he, his mom, and his grandpa had ridden? He's just 17 and I hope that maybe in 20 years another generation gets to ride the family moped as well.
So I'm wondering if there are any other MA members out there who are riding their parent's or grandparent's bikes?
