looking for a good mechanic

Post by sclafani »

I'm pressed for space in my garage. My bike is totally stripped down. The top end is off the motor. I do not have the tools nor the knowledge for the needed Slinger service or the tools for disassembly of the transmission.
I live in southeast Florida. Does anyone have any suggestions or know of anyone within the state or near by states?

The IBMWR website has a list of independent mechanics. It should provide a starting point. Another similar list:

Kurt in S.A.
'78 R100/7 '69 R69S '52 R25/2
Fast. Neat. Average. Friendly. Good. Good.

That is some list. I think that is about one dealer for every pre 1970 BMW in Australia.

You guys have so many great options.

I would contact Hex Moto in Boynton Beach, FL. Excellent mechanic who can do slinger work. I would recommend him. I'm not techy enough to paste his website but Google Hexmoto and you will find his site.

How can you find a mechanic at this forum because mechanics don't use forums to chat with bike owners?
