Since I cam across this blog I've read all kinds of references to "Hard Mods", "Soft Mods", "Soul Mods" etc. etc.,
many of htem, I think spurious or purely notional. I hesitate to add yet another sub-category, but I wonder how many mods are out there who, like me, fell chronologically between the cracks of the original mods (by whom I was mentored) and the Revivalist Mods (whom I viewed with interest but little first hand involvement).......perhaps we should call ourselves the "Missing Link Mods"!!!
