The owner of E-Bike, which is located at 41-27 Queens Blvd, appears to have turned his store into a full-service repair shop.
The owner was welding together bike parts on the side walk Friday in front of his store. While he was working away, several pedestrians gingerly walked by – including mothers with strollers and senior citizens—perplexed by the situation.
The owner/operator had no goggles or safety equipment while performing the work; furthermore, he displayed little concern for pedestrians.
The store has been subject to criticism from public officials before for leaving scooters out front and doing some engine work on the sidewalk. However, welding is something new.
