The owner of this company is a rip off , Do not do business with this liar. He will tear your bike apart and sell the parts off of it and then say he will take that money a fix your bike like you want it and actually you will never see it again . My friend bike frame still seating in his shop and its been 8 years .....
A two years ago I took a bike to them. Said off the bat its an electrical problem and I already had the carbs cleaned a year ago. Also need the gas light fixed. What do they do? Charge for a carb clean. Off course when I get the bike back the main fuse keeps popping and I called them. They came and towed the bike free of charge. But then said theyd have to charge me to find out the electrical issue. Work they were already suppose to do. Also didn't fix the gas light smh. Waist of a months time and I took bike to nother shop.
Unfortunately, I was referred to this shop by a friend with a newer bike. It seems they must do great work on easy repairs and tuning up modern fuel injected bikes according to what I've heard and read elsewhere online. Again, unfortunately with my bike, these guys seemed uninterested, sometimes clueless, and didn't show much desire at all to make my bike work for me. I don't fix bikes, and know nothing about them. When I take a bike to a repair shop I expect the people there to be willing and able to fix bikes. Like, can I take this thing out and not get stuck when you're done with it, please? My bike, a 1978 KZ650, it sat in their shop from March 4-July 24. Almost five months!? Their duty was to get it going after it sitting for a couple years in my garage. Some carb cleaning/tuning/jetting, installing a brand new amazing exhaust system, getting my electric starter working, and making the bike start in a reliable manner seemed to be some of the most difficult tasks these guys have ever came across. At one point at around 4 months in I stopped in the shop to see what the hold up was and all the mechanics actually had an awkward powwow right in front of me about what they hadn't been doing to fix my bike. I couldn't believe my eyes listening to them game plan that far into the game. Guess what fellas, the game was already over and at point, and you'd fallen far far behind. And so my wallet. $600 dollars in mostly labor later, I was stuck out at 3a on the first day I picked it up. I have no desire to even waste any more time here ever again. And yet I have to waste more of my time on this review. Sad to say they earned it though. The owner and staff seemed nice and helpful, but how in the world could you, as a business owner, hold someone's bike that long and not make it run for them? That's when reviews like this happen. Such a magical story of fail, isn't it? In closing, I'm not going to diss their game on newer bikes, but if you have an older bike with carbs, stay far away from this place.
