Ok... actually only Dumb is Going to Tulsa, followed by Dumber going to Dallas to meet Dumb for the twofer. Or vice Versa? We are still sorting out who is Dumb and who is Dumber if you will.
Anyway... we are both full up on projects, but we have both made friends with an absolute legend of a human being named Armando. Armando made his way into our intellectually challenged orbit by way of buying one of Mark's flips. A cosmetically ratty but mechanically well sorted P125.
In a few short weeks Armando had paint matched and resurrected the cosmetics of the China Blue P125 to showroom floor newness. No corners cut. Turns out he had shot single stage automotive for VW for like 20 years before opening his own shop. A shop that he recently retired from.
Armando likes to stay busy so much so that he keeps asking me and Mark to sell him one of our project bikes. Mark and I have discussed this and decided the best path forward was not to sell him a bike, but find him a bike.
As Mark and I are both moths to a flame anytime a deal pops, we figured it would just be a matter of time. And so from the mean streets of Tulsa (Cue the Don Williams) we found Armando a scoot that we can just give him.
The deal is a P200 and P125. The 200 will be flipped to make Mark and I whole money wise and the 125 will be given to Armando gratis. Mark and I will do the mechanicals for him and make sure he's sorted there, and Mr. Armando will do his own paint magic.
Fun stuff. Note we will update this with the projects progress. (And maybe even video the surprise when we give him the bike?)
