So I found this sitting by the dumpster one day and thought it was pretty cool - looks like something I rented on Daytona Spring Break in 1984 from the Scoot and Poot. After doing a little research on some site called the Moped Army, I discovered it was built by a guy name Matt "Babbitt" Turner over the course of two years in Atlanta. Apparently it's made of parts from a bunch of different mopeds, motorcycles and scooters or something. I like that the seat fits neatly on my bottom and it doesn't give me back problems or shingles when I blast cars at near 70. Fuck The Swoops and God bless The Swoops. Thanks to Bobby Costello, Fred Braue, Rob Wonder, Mark Tway, Kevin Thompson, Will Daloz, Nick Melton, Brooks Rayman, Jordan Mellville (for the stress testing), Dan Kastner, Adam Perling, Billy Jefferson and anyone else who put up with my OCD...
