Harold and Trux are right.
Something I love to say out loud, but probably doesn't translate well here is "hey, that's mopeds." Things suck all the time. We're trying to keep a dead technology going.
It's apt that we all post on the Moped Army, because we are, essentially, scrounging for parts to make our shit run. This shit happens in the real Army (military) all the time. The reality is that we're trying to make a generation old, forgotten, technology work for us. I think that's part of the beauty of it. I love riding, I also love that it takes work to ride.
Your problem with Benji sucks. I try to stick with Warbux, 1977, and even Quarterkick because I love my gang, and then, the Moped Army. But when I need something I can't get through them, Benji has always been amazing, and quick. Never happened to me, but I've heard numerous times, about how he'll throw extra schwag in an order and make someone's day, gaskets or some-such, and that's awesome. He's done a lot of good work getting a lot of things for us that we couldn't get anywhere else. He's our Radar O'Reilly.
I guess I'm trying to say give him a break. Get a little perspective. We're a community, and he's been good to our community. It's not too much money, and he'll probably make it right, at least the next time you buy. He ain't T-Mobile, and these aren't cell phones. We aren't the huge market that we like to think we are. We should be thankful that we get the things in the US that we do. I wasn't around for it, but I've heard that there was a point when a kit was unheard of. Not 'not available'. but no one knew they existed. It's because of the shops that we have these things now.
