weeeeeeeee!

01Mar11

The winter months make it easy to forget how much fun you have with moped friends. This weekend I went down to Goshen Indiana for a welcome home party for Mr. Responsible Jon, hosted by Devin at the MLM shop. It was a collection of amazing midwestern friends. Bandits, TBS, Guns, MF, Motion Left and […]

derbi progress

yesterday i finally got the dremel collets i needed to hook up my dremel flex shaft. i was holding off porting my polini exhaust until then so i could get all the angles i wanted inside the exhaust port, making it a lot easier. a pros only porting tip i picked up from peter is […]


is the formula for progress on the derbi monster, and lots was made tonight.
