Bike Mechanics In Houston?

Hey guys,

Does anyone know of any bike mechanics in or near Houston that work on old 70's era bikes? Tried calling the guy at Metric-Cycles but he doesn't work on anything that old.

Motorcycles Unlimited sadly does not work on old 70's bikes, Thankfully they were able to point me to a guy out in Webster who works on a lot of old bikes. , As for what needs to be done.

I want to get the engine in general checked out since I just recently bought this bike, I know i need a head gasket, also need to put the correct header on it. The Carbs probably need to re-jetted as well. Just assuming all of this because when I roll off the throttle at high speeds I have some unburnt fuel coming out of the Header.

Stopped by Sealy Motorcycles a few weeks back and they work on older bikes. Saw some of the new Urals as well. Actually it was kind of a neat place, they had a 70's triumph that they had just finished workig on and it looked amazing.

Added bonus is you get to ride on RR if you chose to stay off of i-10
