I read your story. It touched me. Sorry for the hard times, but happy for the good times.
You are right. Mopeds, as we do them here, have no hard rules. It is as much art as it is any form of mechanical tuning or whatever.
There is freedom in that. Freedom that unleashes creativity which produces a unique artform.
I posted earlier that no moped (or possession) holds such value that I couldn’t let it go eventually. I hope your machine keeps a place in your heart and garage and brings good feels for a long time.
