any exp. with ride time collision?

I gotta take the bike in to the shop so ima go all the way across houston. I havent had a reply back from em on here but has anyone been there to fix their bike? The reason im goin to them from spring is for one theyre a sponsor on here and two the do work on the frame and my rearset is broke from the frame. Figured thats my best bet if I wana keep the bike I got. Any replies about the shop would be great!

Really? Nothing? Ok well how about a recommended shop around spring or woodlands to fix my bike..specifically where the rearset attaches to the frame? Ill drive where i need to within a 50 mile radius but I also need them to to fix the fairings.

Motorcycles Unlimited on 1960.
PM Patrick on here if you're worried about if they work on frame damage... but they do insurance work.

I've only used them for maintenance stuff (and a bent wheel), but couldn't be happier with the customer service.

Well if its welded to the frame in would be worried About a total loss. Bolted then it depends on the extent if damage to the actual frame. I would definitely go to Motorcycles Unlimited though .

Also find a CWI that can NDT or UT the weld to make sure it is safe.

I know some of the people at RT are good. Buddy was getting his wrecked harley fixed at another shop & they found a bend in the frame after ordering a butload of parts. The Ride time guys handled the frame work & Willow Creek finished the job
( WCC is pretty good if you need Harley work BTW)

The guys at Motorcycles Unlimited are good mechanics but dunno if they can fix or weld a frame. Guess you have to decide what you're looking for. Sounds like you might need both places though.

Chances are Motorcycles Unlimited can get you fixed up without sacrificing safety or reliability. If not, Patrick will likely tell you what your best options are. He carries a wealth of knowledge that comes from years in the industry, I'm sure his info will set you on the right path.
