The deal was $50 labor and he supplied everything. I still spent 1/2 my labor money to use the right parts. Now he has the first bike I built him. He got mad and came over and took all his ****ty parts and tells me he is building them himself. Says he has 3 already sold. Blablabla... Problem is hes a picker/hoarder and I can only imagine the crap he is building.
I told him build away and that friction drive isn't my idea. Asked him if he had internet and he said he has someone who "goes online for him" LOL. Good luck buddy.
Oh yea I met him the same way. He stopped me and wanted to buy my bike. I told him no. He asked if I could build him one. Live & Learn.............
I've been in the service business for almost 30 years, and I learned a thing or two.

1. If you charge cheap prices, you attract cheap people as customers.
2. Cheap people make crappy customers lol.
