Spring is here.

Having trouble?  Give us a call.


Spring is on its way.

It has been a long and bitter cold winter.   With that said spring is just around the corner and your bike is begging for a tune up.  Make sure to schedule your appointment early and beat the early spring rush.   I took the time to install a furnace in the shop this winter, the only problem is that the ground is still frozen so there will be no gas until late spring.    Repairs are starting to come in and the shop temperature is hanging in the mid teens, one more winter with space heaters.

early repairs make for one cold mechanic.
