Things at the lounge are going smoothly. We have a new product line coming in soon. I am excited about it, but I'll keep it close to the vest for the moment. Let me say this: 200cc, liquid cooled, four-valve, ceramic coated cylinder. It's going to be good!

What else is happening? We are extremely busy with repairs still. We have a 1959 Lambretta TV175 that is coming out of the paint booth in a day or so and reassembly will begin soon. This project is particularly exciting because we are doing the restoration for the original owner. He has a long history with this scooter including that he rode it on his first date with his wife. It is going to be really fun to present it to him in restored condition-- just like when he opened first opened the crate at the age of 14.

Funny stories? Lemme think a minute.

Nope. . . nothing.

I have a question actually. Do you find that your shop is seasonal? I would assume that you are far busier in the spring and summer, but are people bringing in their scooters in the winter for repairs, or restoration like this guy?

Things are pretty seasonal. Unfortunately, service and sales slow down and pick up at about the same time, so Winter can be pretty tough. I have tried to come up with ways to keep it going though. One possibility is ATV and Go-Kart sales. We could also have a Winter discount on labor. I am open to suggestions of course.

Have you thought of working on snow machines?

Also I heard a guy came in a while back looking for a "lounge". You could make some bucks that way!
