April 6, 2020 – Detroit Moped Works has started a GoFundMe fundraiser to raise money to go directly to our mechanics. You can donate at https://www.gofundme.com/f/a-little-help-for-our-staff.
As a seasonal business, we spend all winter building bikes and living on debt, reliant on a massive March and April to dig us out of debt and propel us into the busy summer season of repairs. With the current pandemic, that will not happen this year.
As a shop, we can begin to liquidate assets; but with no repair work (and the state’s mandatory shut down), our commission based mechanics are without income.
All money donated will go directly to subsidize the living expenses of our mechanics.
As there are a lot of people in need, we have set a modest goal; but we could use a lot more.
Every little bit helps. Thanks a ton and stay safe.
