    There are a dozen hardly owners in and around my little town.
    People with old bikes bring them to these guys thinking that they're knowledgeable about bikes but sooner or later the bike ends up in MY yard.
    I get a few jobs that way.

    I've seen that first hand at your shop. I'm thinking you have enough bikes of your own to work on.

    They're probably too busy changing tires for the pink smoke biker gang
