Tech Day at my shop?

Just testing the waters here. Got a Tech Day planned for the guys on the ADV board. Anyone here want to stop by and work on their own bike? Got two lifts for picking the big bikes up to working height. Lots of room to work and I have most of the tools you may need.

Please leave them behind when you leave.

I am a sculptor by trade and I work in welded steel. So if you need something welded or want to make something for your bike I have most of the machinery you might need also. If you can bring your own steel great, if you use mine we can talk price on the steel.

My shop is located just north of McDowell on 40th Street.

The date is Jan. 9th from 9:00 am till whenever.

If you are interested I will P.M. you the contact info. and address.

Why am I here and what day is it??

Re: Tech Day at my shop?

Interested, but don't really have much to do on the bike right now, that I feel like doing anyways. May pop in and install the new tip-over bars I just got.

When Kevin says he has a couple of lifts, he's not foolin'. Eat your heart out Handy Lift.

Re: Tech Day at my shop?

Yeah, it's an old garage. The lifts are back in action again. I had to rebuild both of them to stop the leaks and slow creep. The older one outside is from the late 40s or early 50s. The "new" one inside is from 1954. The seals are getting hard to find.

Doesn't matter if you don't want to work on your bike. Just drop on by and see the goings on. With the ADV guys you never know what's going to happen next.

I will PM you the contact and address info.

I'm interested. Not sure if I'll have much to do on my bike, but would like to see what others are doing, share tips, whatever.

Re: Tech Day at my shop?

We'll be out there by the end of the month. Can you put it off that long? I've had to shovel snow three times already in Indiana. Lookin' forward to some Phoenix winter.

Sorry guys I volunteered to be the Motorcycle SAG support for Casa Grande Bicycle ride on that Sunday. I do not have anything to work on my bikes any way nowadays.
