Unfortunately you're right. If a guy were to do a volume it would probably happen eventually.

I do bikes for people, but I pick and choose carefully. Tha last one I did was for another shop owner. The one I'm doing now is for a guy who already has several MB's.

I don't think I would do one if the customer had never ridden anything on 2 wheels and had no mechanical ability.
