BLK BLK New Years.

Drove out to Denver for New Years to hang with my crew BLK BLK. Here is the Shred Shed and some BLKs hanging with the goat we are roasting for New Years. The shop has a private skate park in it shared by 303 boards. So I can skate and work on mopeds all night, winning.  Also camped in western Kansas at he chalk pyramids and included a couple photos.

 It was kind of creepy camping out here alone. Everyone should check this out sometime. It's 25 miles south of I-70 at the Oakley exit in western Kansas. Totally free and open all the time.

I love Kansas.

 This pretty much sums up how I view Mopeds. We have fun and they are confused.
 If i was a girl I would date Josh.
 The only boner killer about this pic is the quality of oil Matt is using!

GY6 Clutch on a Hobbit rear Wheel

So some of you may know this but some Dayang Honda Hobbit clones came with Clutches on the rear wheel transmission.  So I tried fitting the GY6 clutch on the shaft and it's a very close match. Gonna have to source some bearings and do a little shimming but this is what it looks like so far.

Hutchinson Kansas....The Buzzin Bastards.

So for the holidays I headed home to Hutchinson, Kansas. Aka the middle of nowhere, but Im proud to be from the middle of nowhere. My hometown is more or less like a deleted Gummo scene. There is a movie about this town called Mysterious Skin (trailer based on a novel written by Scott Heim. It was directed, edited and adapted by Gregg Araki (directed The Doom Generation, Nowhere, Totally Fucked Up) and stars Joseph Gordon-Levitt, it has become one of my favorite films to date. I'm proud to be from here because a lot of people I know are wasted and the few friends who made it through I seem to value more. You can pick Midwest kids out of a lineup because they know how to entertain themselves and keep busy, I think that is very relevant in mopeds. Also when building mopeds in small towns you get NO support from anyone. Getting called a "fag" daily is the norm for mopedders and mopeds arent established as a "cool" thing. So I feel like you really have to love it to get into it as opposed to living in a huge city with already established gangs and scenes. The idea of being in a Moped Army official group isnt real and is most of the time a joke. Even though most of these kids in scattered towns know more about mopeds then half of MA's members. In this light Midwest mopedders are the most dedicated.

Here are some photos I took of my friends bikes and cats. Adam, Matt, and Josh, AKA The Buzzin Bastards keep it alive!
