Well guys the time has come to take a step away from working privately out of my own shop into the world of "real" business. Ive got a great oppurtunity to buy a tuning\custom shop that I have frequented over the past few years in my neck of the woods....wish me luck!!

BTW...if I do get it....you know we will be doing meets there!!!

[thumbsup] congrats Rob on a great move [clap]

it takes guts and determination(especially at the beginning), but if it works out is well worth it, say good bye to THE BOSS! - unless you did

a long time ago [cheeky]


THE BEST OF LUCK !

Thanks guys! It's nothing huge but it'll be mine and I can finally do what I want. I'm envisioning a very deversified line-up of work on top of the already established clientel. Here's a link to the current shop, the name is going to change....http://www.xoticmotorsports.com/services.php
I'm thinking "Busted Knuckle Customs" or something along those lines....

Yeah, I want to lower it a bit and maybe slap on an exhaust. The exhaust I can do myself, but I don't have tools for doing suspension.

Ohh yeah, we will work on everything. Just give me an idea of what you will be looking for and I can start sourcing some of it.

Actually Travis....no, we're going to expand the horizons alittle. I plan on doing some cutom bike stuff along with sourcing a bike dyno (unless I can have one of the current 2 modded to run bikes).

a) bite me ken. i finally got it figured out, and it gave me a much greater knowledge of the bike. also more confidence to try other things.

b) TDC is a mechanical term. it appeals to me because it references something specific.


wasn't TDC the name of a bike show on TNT before it became spike?
