The Orphanage, the city’s first repair-and-sales outfit exclusively for mopeds, was opened by Ryan Due, a member of the Greenpoint moped “gang” the Orphans (so named because they began as “a bunch of disheveled, poor kids living together”). Due and crew have already fixed up customers’ bikes, and they’re now selling good-as-new salvage jobs.
