Uh...I'm no gold standard Graham. Maybe by some moped standards cause I take showers, replace every part I think sucks and make things I want to ride and deem safe haha.
And correct, we aren't even close to the same league. YOU are way higher. You're the one who's been making heads and stuff for the community for years. I left for like 7 years and came back to MA and you're still kicking. But you and me are starting to get old. We've been doing bike things for a long time.
I completely forgot to reach out to you last time I came to Milwaukee for the Mama Tried show. That was one sketchy drive out last time me and Keino did it. I'm not sure if I'm going again this year, but we should link up soon. I got some fun ideas we should bounce back and forth...I want to elevate the moped game to the same level of the motorcycles I take to Handbuilt show in Austin and The Brooklyn Invitational. Partially because I'm getting a little tired of how serious the motorcycle game is, especially when it comes to the high dollar race bikes (new and old). But that doesn't mean I'm going to roll around on a rusty bike with original tires...you know me better than that.
I only had a few minutes at the shop tonight after work then had to run home to start dinner. So I couldn't take any good pics of the custom frame bikes. But you can peak in a pic in the background the Seeley inspired Honda frame in the background. I only had a chance to snap a pic of my Derbi frame I did and the hoarding of Revolution motors I've been doing, but you can see the difference between Vapor Blasting vs Steel Wool vs Dirt & Mud. Maybe I'll start a build thread on here of it. Who knows...I don't even think people really care.
