Bike Mechanic Natividad Zirate Details Tools Needed
A little over a week has elapsed since Parks Department workers seized and destroyed Natividad Zirate’s lifeblood. His peddler cart of tools and other sundries. Hence the newish DIY sign begging for any and all tool donations. Despite this significant setback, though, the beloved homeless bike mechanic refuses to budge from his high-profile sidewalk workshop at the base of Second Avenue.

Inspired by this unfortunate turn of events, one enterprising Boogie reader was determined to help the cause. Our tipster spoke with Zirate and recorded a proper wishlist of tools necessary to survive the summer:
- Cable cutter
- Cone wrenches
- Headset wrenches
- Hozan spoke threader
- Adjusting wrench
- Truing stand
Anyone out there know someone looking to ditch any of the above? Please let us know. In the meantime, Zirate is contemplating whether to seek legal counsel for protection. We are told that some have also suggested approaching the grassroots environmental group Time’s Up.
