    Independents

    Anyone know of any independent mechanics who could swap out barrels, pistons and cylinder heads on an 07 883 in or around Middlesbrough/Guisborough without ripping my eyes out? I have all of the relevant gaskets and parts but have been quoted £800 from one bloke. Seems a bit steep.
    TIA

    I need to move north then - I charge 6 hours / £270 labour for that. Have you thought about doing it yourself? It's only nuts & bolts ...

    Unfortunately I don't have the time, tools or expertise. Much as I'd love to give it a go I'd only bugger it up. Don't fancy a run to Guisborough to pick it up do you?

    Will bear that in mind Alex. You'll have to let me know when you're quieter so I can get the money sorted. Thanks.

    As the old saying goes, "quality isnt expensive, its priceless".
    There is only one thing I enjoy more than going to Birmingham, and that is coming back from Birmingham.

    Russ look no further than Twin City at South Shields, The owner Steve lives and breathes Harleys in the Frozen North I wouldn't ask anyone bar Steve to work on a Harley they do every job from servicing to full builds
