Chopper mechanic?

Seems like this mysterious character that was in threads years ago and only positive things. Is he still doing any bike work and if so, could I get the number? I try to do most of the work myself but sometimes I need some extra help and I was absolutely ripped off by a few others or had bad experiences (massive bill, axle on the wrong side after changing the tyres...) seems like this chopper guy has a very good reputation. If he doesn't do any work anymore, is there anyone else reasonable? Tried NDM and wouldn't answer my phone or respond to emails or text messages (that was 3 months ago and not a holiday period). Do I really need to beg someone to give them my money? I don't understand people that have a business but are not interested in even answering the phone or responding at all.

You've obviously never needed a plumber in a hurry either.
Google "Poleon Motorcycles" and follow any links that lead to a business based just outside of Trim.
I'd throw up more details but I'm busy getting the brussel sprouts ready.

Not in a hurry, it says permanently closed? I assume he doesn't work anymore.

Re: Chopper mechanic?

Why don't you cut out all the speculation and just PM Chopper directly on here. If you don't get an answer then you know the score. For info, chopper no longer works out of Trim, the workshop is a little further south these days, not far from Dunshaughlin, and yep, the service is excellent.

Edit: you may need to get your post count up a bit first - so have a look for the Boobies thread and go for your life.

Been in NDM getting work done. He was working on his own. The phone never stopped, if he answered it every time it rang he'd get nothing done. I'd put up with unanswered calls and mails to get good quality honest work done.
Also had work done by chopper. Top class work and price by both.

You'd put up with someone not answering the phone and not replying to your texts or emails?

Not ideal, but my experience of the shops with the sales/parts/servicing departments who'll surely answer your calls has been dissapointing and pricey. Personally I'd keep trying the person I'd trust with the bike.

Re: Chopper mechanic?

you'll rarely get steve in NDM unless you drive up there, as it gets closer to race season you'll be climbing over racebikes to get to the counter. My guess is he wouldn't be the man for chopper work, I don't know that he does much machining.. Maybe if you posted the jobs you need done someone might be able to point you in the right direction

I used to think tranny was a gearbox, and gender fluid was the sticky stuff that wimens sometimes get in their eyes when you pull out too soon during fellatio

The truth is stranger than fiction,. somebody once told me they spotted NDM Kev running into the national leprechaun museum wearing a wonderwoman costume while being followed by a hape of fuckers shouting and roarin' down middle abbey street.

I just thought -cmon now ted - but you can't rule anything out these days, I'd say he'd look well in a pair of hotpants.
