Good deed for the day
So today while I was out and about I saw what looked like a moto that went over a hill by my local home depot. So I pull over and investigate to see what was going on. I realize quickly that it was a you kid 15-16ish that was having mechanical troubles with a pocket bike he was riding on a bike trail down there.
So I venture over and ask whats goin on and if he needed some help and tools. He did so I grab my bag o' tools out of the saddle bag and head over to see whats up. Apparently he lost a motor mount bolt and popped the chain. So we got the chain back on and I explained to him how to adjust it properly when he gets home and then went about fixing the bolt. He had no idea where It went so we figured out the approximate size, 5/16 x 5" and off to home depot we went. I spent a whole dollar on the parts for him and another 10 minutes putting the bolt in.
Talked with him for a bit, seemed like a good kid with a good head on his shoulders, he was already working, was interested in becoming a chef, loved cars, and bikes, He reminded me of myself at his age. I certainly am glad to have given up 30 minutes and a dollar to help the guy out. I certainly had fun working on the bike in front of home depot too.
