Ask me how I got a Harley for free.

Thanks for asking! Well it started about 2 years ago. One of my customers at my old job gave me an 87 Yamaha Razz 50cc scooter. When I got it, there was no title, it didn't run and it was flat. After some wrenching on it, I got it running. Then I went through the long process of getting it registered. Which meant multiple trips to the DMV and to the CHP just so I could get the scooter inspected. Eventually I got the title and used the scooter to commute to work with.
