alright the condensed version: i was thinking of doing a grand opening special tune up/dial in for like $10. most shops get $15-30. in reality a tune up/dial takes like half an hour or so and the only cost involved to the shop is a little oil for lubing shit up. maybe even expand and do a clean/tune for like $20 which i think most other shops charge $40-50 for. my thought was maybe do a dual deal where i could get a few in and you come in do the work and like a buck or two per goes to the shop and the rest goes to the shop to cover expenses and supplies and the rest goes in you pocket cash money. if we could get a few bikes in a day you could cut about what you'd make at a shitty part time job that wouldn't be nearly as fun. maybe even make it at fri/sat special so it mostly gets packed in those two days either way if we did a $8/$2 split and you did 3 a day that like $25 cash in your pocket for a coupla hours work.
90s rangers were decent trucks. a master shouldn't be much at all for that truck. if that is indeed all it needs. insurance and registration will hit you harder than anything.
whatta you think about the idea?

i might have a little plan to help you make some cash in association with opening the shop. it's an idea i've been tossing around. in all honesty think about it and you ain't gonna get enough outta selling your bike to make much of a difference but not having a bike will make a difference in your life. i'll be broke as fuck and not able to pay anybody to work the shop but the idea i have is shop related. that probably makes no sense but you'll completely understand when i run it by you. I'm STILL waiting on the realestate guy to get back with me on how long it'll take to get the spot ready. i sold my 60 ford truck and my canoe i never use this week. took a loss on the truck but i'm still about a grand up from where i was last week...ken....

other than i wouldn't mind picking up a small one at some point i'm pretty good on cases. those two i picked up in charlotte are pretty big. i'll grab a cheap 3 or 4 footer at some point if one comes along. i only paid $60 each for the two i got which is rediculous. i stopped by the store fixture supply place after i bought themt o get so peg hooks and shit and they offered me double what i paid. the exact one there was $375 each haha. the owners are supposed to be getting back with me with when they can have the spot in hickory ready. i got a possible offer to throw your way maybe. biggest catch is you gotta get you a damned phone but we could probably work something. i'll run it past you soon....ken....

anyhow $3500 a month for rent is crazy overhead. by the time you add in electric, insurance, upkeep, etc you gotta pull a coupla hundred bucks cash a day no questions and then somebody has to get paid to run the joint. i heaqrd rumor of this and the BP shop is supposedly changing it's name to....ken....

that sucks about your mom. ride that shit til it breaks or you can get a ride over to get it swapped. hell throw somebody $5 for gas and get them to run you over there. i'd do it but my car is being a bitch right now.
theres a ritzy day spa next to the shop spot so nothing could sit out in the parking lot. thats the biggest downside of that spot.
if i could ever get this one lady to call me back on some financial shit the shop would be locked confirmed. i don't know why she's being a pain in the ass. super cool to deal with in person but was supposed to call me back with some info 10 days ago. basiclly it determines whether i have to have a side job to pay home bills or not while getting the shop up.
always good to hear about other people stoked on the shop theory....ken....

i'll have to ride back up there tomorrow. i saw Dragon's Den. since i have about 50% body coverage(hence the Sideshow in the shop name) i always "notice" tattoo shops above most other places haha. there's also a spot for rent in the building beside day3 where curves is and a small place on the other side of the seafood joint. don't know if either of those would be an option. i wasn't to up on it being that far from my house but really it's only 10 miles or so. do you know the day3 people? i thought about contacting them to see if they had a connect for a rental up there.oh and i created a facebook page for the shop today so it'd be easy for the bike/skate people to keep up with just search out Sideshow bike shop and it should pop up...ken....

rode up 321 looking for places. i guess i didn't see the joint your talking about or it was one of the ones i couldn't stop at how far is it from Day3 ? was gonna call you and when i pulled my phone out it was dead haha. called about the place by the paintball store down from d3 and it's $1200mo. the jumps lookedto be in rough shape so they've got a long days work to get them straight in a day.
