Who here hasn't seen a single mom on a limited budget driving an old car, always breaking down. She don't know anything about auto repair and can do nothing. At the mercy of a mechanic. He's the cheapest mechanic in town because he's all she can afford and that itself could exacerbate the problem. Somebody buys an old bike. May be the best bike he can afford. Needs a lot of work but he's just never been a wrench and just can't keep it running. I'd love to help both but I've only got so much time and resources, and I've got my own stuff too. My stepson begs me to sell him my old BSA. He knows NOTHING about British motorcycles and they need a fair amount of work. Even a perfect one needs to be tended on a regular basis. Nothing like a modern Japanese bike. I've seen the first two examples over and over and over.
