There's only one guy in town I've found who's even willing to work on RE's.


The two classic Brit shops in my state (that I know of) won't touch my bike. They both refuse to work on them and actually told me to steer clear of the bikes all together when I was shopping around.

And apparently you made the right choice and steered clear of those two dealers!   ;D

Well, they are trustworthy guys and have been in the business for years. One of the shops actually sold my father a triumph in the early 1970s. They were looking out for my best interest I assume, since neither was cramming one of their in stock bikes down my throat. People are entitled to their opinions about these bikes, especially experienced mechanics. The only thing that really matters to me is that I like my bike, and I do.  ;D

Sad news, but the silver lining is that I am 300 miles from a dealer, so, I have done all the repairs and maintenance myself.  In nearly 12000 miles, nothing has stopped me yet.
