Those who go and seek out barn finds successfully are awesome. Those who take whatever came their way and make them amazing creatures of mechanical ingenuity that are solid and now home to numerous custom parts. With the parts they do something that other people are interested in having as part of their bike or that's why they're interested in the bike. It's totally reasonable to expect to be compensated for the mods. if they did the work well, and they want to pass it down the line as long as they put in a list of what they put on the bike and the cost of the stuff and be able to tell you
whether it's new stuff that was put on whether it was Worn and picked up on trade or exactly what the story is so that people actually know what's been done and that the value added is clear and you should be able to advertise these bikes on buy and sell and be clear that they don't need to be stricken down as as silly not worth a pittance because in fact then they're asking that the person that built it donate to them. which is not right. Some guy just couldn't get it across his mind that something that I've used briefly( a cheetah Chrome pull start which is not even available at the moment with all the parts to it is not worth what I paid for it . I need to subsidize his build it's my responsibility to provide him with the parts to finish his build at the price that he wants to pay for it well great, it stays on my shelf.
I really would hope that there was some kind of separate section on the buy sell for bikes to be listed by asking price. w
with a place to put every single thing to justify your price multiple pictures and p.m. me if interested and no comments. Unless you leave it open for comments. That probably would do the most for strengthening Moped Army at this point. It's a really bad idea that buy and sell migrates to other forums it weakens the reason to be on Moped Army and it just invites bad behavior. I expect and suspect that people who are creating little versions of Moped Army on Facebook etc are aware that they're trying to grow their audience and shifts people to their narrative that's all that people do anymore they try to figure out how to make a following and after they make a following how to monetize it that's all that people are doing like why don't you just get a job this is a hobby.
