+1 to Victors as used in the past, Bike Care are also a good bunch of guys (St. George) and I've used Bristol Bike Doc too (St. Phillips).

Any of you on the south side of Bristol check out Clevedon Motorcycles. Top group of lads who know their stuff and will bend over backwards to help you. Chris the owner is currently doing 1500 worth of repairs on my GSXR and allowing me to pay in 250 monthly instalments whilst getting my bike back as soon as it is fixed.

I thought the damage was only 250 to fix?

I use Dave Carter. He did most of the workshop work at Speedwell Motorcycles in Fishponds before it closed down a couple of years ago. Now running his own workshop and doing really good work at very reasonable rates. He can also collect with van. Good mechanic and a very friendly guy too. Highly recommended.

His workshop is at the top of Kingswood, near the ring road.
