Metric Motorcycles in the Heights FTW!

If you're on the North side, hit up Motorcycles Unlimited too!

Either place can get you hooked up.

If you want some bad-to-the-bone bodywork for that bike, I think I can find a guy....

Nah man, Tony's paint jobs are the sickness... I'd hit him up fo sho, especially being a site sponsor and all.

I can do it, he is a cut above! I appreciate the props, but there is a lot to be said for someone who does it every day.

Among a few other shops, I think you'll find a lot of people recommending Motorcycle's Unlimited. There is a reason for it. They always provide friendly service. Quality work. Quick turn-around times. Good suspension setups. Fair prices (sometimes as low as I can find online). And if you need them at the races, they're always there too. It takes me about an hour to drive up there to them, but I make the drive when I need something because they are just that good and friendly. You won't be disappointed. I don't spend my money anywhere else in town.

If you need paint, I HIGHLY recommend Tony (Houseofpain on this board) at Tom's Auto Body. Quality work, fair prices, great guy. You should have seen how he made my crappy track bodywork shine!!!

Motorcycles Unlimited does everything for all my racebikes. from suspension work to motorwork....and even basic maintenance when i get too lazy to do it myself. top notch service from knowledgeable people, and at a great price. you won't be disappointed, unless you don't like to save money...go to any dealership in town for a good lube job with your rape service. i'm kidding dealership boys/girls.


as for paint and bodywork.... maybe i can be of service.
