A Sunday only mechanic?

I'm in dire need to have work done on the bike, and Sunday is my only day off - making it hard to do just about anything, esp finding a mechanic. Does anyone know of a (trustworthy!) place open on Sunday, OR someplace where I can drop it off *securely* - or maybe a mobile mechanic? Or someone who works out of their garage? Something?

FWIW, what I need done:

CLUTCH - has slack about 60% of the way through the lever; already tightened it at the bars - need to have the cable tightened by the tranny

BRAKES - getting soft on front lever, probably just needs a little break fluid. Minor sqeals, esp rear, might need new pads but probably just de-glazing.

TIRES - worn out, scalloped in front. My 2 tire gauges show different amounts, both high when I know the tires are actually low... anyway where does one buy tires, NOT at a stealership (incl mounting & balance)?

MISC - also want to check air filter & sparkplugs. Need to look into restoring power, may need to have carbs cleaned.

*****

Anyway thx in advance y'all.

PM Civicious on here for your bike mech. needs....he's mobile (or he was).

i'd check into South Central for some tires....free mount and balance if you bring him the wheels off the bike.
