Cliche time!! Hello all!

A/S/L? Nah, jk!

Yeah, so I'm Brandon, and I'm an alco...wait...I'm Brandon, and I love two wheels setups! From mopeds to motorcycles to bicycles! Love checking out people's custom made stuff over performance upgrades they've done...huge bonus if you made custom performance parts .

My heart lays mainly with 50cc pedal start mopeds...in other words real mopeds, not scooters, even though I don't have an issue with scooters. I founded Houston's only moped gang a few years agao, check us out some time on facebook www.facebook.com/dirtycoastriders or on our cheesey website http://dirtycoastriders.webs.com

I also have my street bike, my 2005 Suzuki SV650-S. Bought it off of a buddy of mine, and I haven't done anything special to it. I admit I'm not the most savy gear head, but I get what I can done, and if it is something out of my league that I can't figure out, I swallow my pride and take it to the shop.

I know many out there are fond of my passion for mopeds, but hey, I love em and have fun riding them, so yeah.

You done any mods to it? I was riding with the Houston Scooter Battalion a few weeks ago on my Tomos, and saw this Asian Lady riding one. I talked to her, and recognized her from Starbucks on Westheimer.

Welcome.

Do you have a source for older Sachs moped parts, by chance?

Yep! But they don't always have Sachs parts available try www.treatland.tv
or
www.1977mopeds.com

I prefer treats over 77, also there is some guy I was talking to via email near the Heights that said he had some Sach parts. What are you looking for exactly? I can try and help you locate!
