Wheelers Performence

Just wanted to pimp this fine establishment.

Wheelers Performence.

it's between the GAP and the Skyway.... and is about one of the best shops I've seen in a while.

The guy works first come first serve. He has a GREAT supply of parts. Mostly stuff that breaks when people go down. You know the stuff you need to ride, shift levers, clutch levers, side cases, new tires, ect...

He even has repaired parts of all the same. He does tig welding for alum.

Has a free bike wash and a great assortment of cleaners...all there to use free. Just a great find down there in hills.

WOS purchased a few things from him and Pete (a rider with WOS) had his fork seals replaced for like $30 a side or something stupid cheap.



Workin on PeteDawg's RC51 at Wheelers. The guy let us use his stands and leave the bike in his parking lot all torn down for like 2 hours. I mean how nice is that... he made less money allowing us to do it but still let us do it!!




Do you guys have any good stories about this great shop?

Nuttin... but when I and/or WOS comes upon such a great shop...you just have to spread the word!

I mean, he could over charge for his stuff and his services due to his location and many would pay about anything to get back on the road but HE DOESN'T!

AND THAT'S THE POINT!!

Wheelers is such an awesome place. When I had my slip up a few weeks ago and bent my handle bars he hooked me right up. All his prices are very competitive with internet priceing, so your not getting ripped when you are in need of a part, he mainly just stocks the stuff people tend to break and need to keep riding. Even tho he is in the middle of no where he does accept debit and credit. Also he fixes damaged parts and sells them cheap. Also he does dyno custom maps for the power commanders, he doesn't do all levels of cells, but if your map is screwed or the bike isn't running right for being up in that elevation he can get ya fixed up. Thats my awesome story about wheelers.
