When Kristen Stewart walked into my workshop last month
she was dressed from head to toe in leather. I held my breath
as she stood there, scanning the room and all the bikes.
Naturally I figured she’d stumbled into the wrong place.
I get about 3 visitors a year and none of them ever looked this
good in leather. Still, I thought I’d play it casual and pretend
I had no idea who she was.
“Hey! Aren’t you Kristen Stewart?” Damn. That came out by
accident and to cap it off, my voice broke mid sentence
like I was 14 again.
My charm was obviously quite overwhelming as she ignored
me and wandered over to my bright orange Egli Vincent.
She climbed into the seat, flicked open the fuel tap and
kicked it into life first kick. I couldn’t believe what I was seeing.
It usually takes me at least 3 or 4 kicks.
My brain was trying to get me to ask her what the hell
she was doing but I found myself just standing there
watching her ride right out the door.
As I listened to the beautiful sound of that engine
crackling its way down the service alley, out onto the
main road and off into the unknown, I wondered if
she was going to come back with my precious Vincent.
I also wondered what she saw in that pale, lifeless Robert fellow.
This is, of course, a complete fabrication. I don’t have a workshop or a Vincent.
However, it is fairly typical of the thought, effort and detail that goes into making
something out of nothing here at ModSquad. And let’s be honest, it beats
opening our relationship with a picture of me sitting at my desk.
If you have even a spark of an idea that requires an imaginative approach and some
creative crafting, I can help you make something that we can both be proud of.
And if we can get Kristen involved, all the better.
