Hello everyone

Great to browse through the forum, looks like a great community. I have an XB12S I bought in 2005 which has been off the road for a few years. All in great nick but needs a service, new fork seals and a few bits as I want to get it back on the road again. Does anyone know a decent mechanic / bike shop who looks after Buell's in London / Surrey? Warr's in the Kings Road a bit pricey! Any recommendations very gratefully received.

All the best

Hi and welcome.
Can recommend Maz, a long way to go but worth it. I understand a visit is an education if you fancy a trip to Manchester. I used a courier to get mine there, this cost is easily clawed back by Maz's low hourly rate (certainly if you were thinking of HD pricing). He's the kind of guy you want to work on your Buell, very knowledgeable and mildly obsessive. Peace of mind is worth the extra effort.

It's probably well worth it if it's black(the fastest) :rotfl:
