    just sussing out what a good motor bike mechanic earns inn Europe

    No mods i am not advertising for a mechanic just want to get an idea of the going rate for a GOOD mechanic. say some one with BMW and KTM knowledge with honda throwen in. and maybe Harley D.

    Reason....
    Thinking of doing something this way where customer service and good old fashion, reliable servicing does not exist.

    thanks

    If you pay that per week I might concider some re-education :D

    He means per month, netto. I Belgium that would mean it would cost the employer almost double with taxes and social security and all.

    Like I said on tips and working on the side, I have to pay around &#8364; 80-120 per work unit Ca 45 min, when I put my bike in to get it repaired / serviced,now if the mechanic got that thay would be happy:clap:rofl
    but that's life.

    If you would like to know what I get for my &#8364;'s read this

    Well, Europe is a continent, not a country, and there will be a big difference between for instance Norway and Romania.
    I don't know any amounts, but I think it's safe to assume that working as a motorbike mechanic will not make you rich anywhere in Europe, (at least not in relation to the cost of living in the particular country).

    If you are a good mechanic, you'll be able to earn a decent amount of money. You'll never be rich, but at least you'll have fun during work.
    This goes for Holland, Belgium and Germany.

    Here on the West Coast of Canada a good experienced (10+ yrs) wrench will make $25-$30 hr (CDN$) tops. Not a lot of money considering how much it cost to live here compared to other regions of the country. :1drink
