Gettin our damaged 87 Suzuki Savage back from the service center down past haymarket. The shop in Manassas doesn't want to work on it till winter cause they won't make any money, so I'm tryin' to find out some reccomendations on a shop for parts and repairs on an older bike.

Thanks!

I know everyone's experience will differ however, I had a bad experience with this shop and would never take my bike back there. I am waiting on a response from them before I flame away in short they stripped by drain plug and as of now still don't wanna correct it...

So explain to me why the dealer doesn't want to work on it again.... I understand shops not wanting to work on old stuff as it's old tech and folks don't know how to work on things like old sohc bikes - etc... However, if you park your 87 next to a 96 or a 05 - It's the same bike - and the parts should bolt on... so dealers shouldn't have a prob... 2ndly ... It's a air cooled 650 Single that's been around for a looooooong time - with not much updates and it's still in use today with the current model and it's bulletproof. If memory servers, the only difference is the name - boulevard in 05 - and when Suzuki brought it back in the 90's it's got a 5 speed instead of the 4 speed you have - but less you have tranny issues - and if memory servers it's an a easy swap.... So what's the prob again???

Bent front rim, and I want a shop that's willing to look it over with some expertise. The shop in Manassas has two locations, a suzuki and a harley location. Somehow, the suzuki dealership now has no mechanic and the HD shop won't work on it. We bought this bike used and it's been great for a year, but I don't know who the original dealer was. A few others in our area have also said they won't work on a bike that old.
