I dont know one way or the other, but what doesnt make sense is why were you offering/doing a complete paint job for free on a crappy bike that you have worked on before so it was no surprise its condition. I know free stuff doesnt keep the doors open.

you keep on going on and on about this "free paint job" but in reality you charge $600. you exchanged your $600 service in exchange for not having to buy me a new $1000 gas tank. get it? and the funny thing is you admit giving it an incomplete paint job, hmm that sounds like someone purposely trying to damage someones property doesn't it? i believe its called depreciation?

I offered that before he went and crashed it. I still went ahead and agreed to do it even after he brought me a bunch of broken stuff.

Free stuff doesnt keep doors open, you're right. But returning customers and happy customers do. All I tried to accomplish was retain a customer and keep him happy. Their continued patronage would've paid for the materials spent in no time.

if thats what you base respect on then that shows a lot about your character. its funny he took pictures of the broken tabs on the wrecked fairing when i brought him a replacement to use. any of you that are hard on your bikes know that zipties and epoxy will eventually come into play, but like i said hes avoiding the issue. LEAKY GAS TANK, LEAKY VALVE COVER, BAD PAINT JOB. what does any of that have to do with broken tabs on my wrecked fairing and repaired headlight?

It was already welded up and reprinted before I got a chance to take a picture of it.

Wow! This is why I gladly pay professionals to work on my bikes. if I manage to something up it's on me! No way to prove a shop is at fault if everything on my bikes are jimmy rigged! Hope you guys work this out.

I actually have a lot of respect on people at the track with really up bikes.. And even the ones with nice paint jobs have my respect because of WHO they are.. The people who ride them! I really dont care how your bike looks but it does show how much you care for it.. Its sad.

Your credibility. Thats what everything i posted has to do with it. You brought me and expected me to turn it into gold. I don't work miracles. Especially when I'm not paid to do it.

Leaky gas tank, bad paint job... Pay me and I will gladly take care of you.... Wait I don't want your business. That's why I don't wanna fix either issue that I attempted to help you with.

Leaky valve cover... Funny how that was never brought up til now... Also funny how that is the ONLY thing you paid me to do and now you say it's messed up again.

Like I said. Put your grown up pants on. Talk to me in person or take me to court. Continue to bash my business and I will gladly take you to court for defamation of my name.

LAST POST. I'm out.

my credibility is quite intact, what exactly have i lied about? what do broken tabs have to do with you piercing my tank? funny how my valve cover didnt start leaking until after you got angry with me... you pierced my tank, you messed up my paint, for those things im suing for compensation. try not to sick your friends on me after this thread

You guys got to speak your peace, but it sounds like it's gonna take more than a thread on MH for you guys to come to some sort of agreement.

Hope you can handle the situation further the way it all started: face to face.
Good luck.
