    Hey folks, I run a custom cabinet and general woodworking shop in Olympia WA and I thought I would post to try and scare up some work, the bubble pop heard around the world knocked the wind out of my business and I've been scraping by ever since. I run a "green" business, shop time is $45.00 and hour (compare to $50-$100 for most others) and I put customer satisfaction above every thing else. The link is to my some what outdated portfolio but it gives you a good idea of what I do. Thanks for your time. I also do all phases of remodeling and other general carpentry. Tom. 360-705-8843.

    Can't post this as a response to the thread sadly but here's a place to meet folks who ride dual sports (and sport bikes and touring bikes and scooters and dirt bikes and sidecars and other weird contraptions).

    Just picked up a nice tire machine to swap tires out of my garage.

    Hofmann Monty 1520emx...oh yeah!

    Anything you've got on two wheels this machine can handle and won't damage your wheels. Harley's, Goldwings, BMW's you name it.

    El Swap-O's moto tire biz is ready to put some new shoes on your ride!:clap

    Bring your tires/wheels to me and I will swap them for you at $25 per wheel mount/static balance plus small disposal fee for old tires and you save yourself shop rates to remove/install.

    I live in Mill Creek but we could possibly meet in Seattle for pickup/delivery depending on schedule.

    PM me for any questions or to schedule service!

    Yeah I'm a bit out of your way but I have great hours since I swap tires out of my garage. M-F evenings and anytime on the weekends. I am located in the Mill Creek area.

    $25/wheel off the bike for mount and balance.

    Let me know if I can help! Was just out mtb riding at duthie today too bad I didnt see your post and we could have hooked up...

    Just wanted to drop in a post saying that Faustus changed a set of tires for my and his service and communications were EXCELLENT!

    I highly suggest using his service to change your tires when needed.

    Thanks again Faustus!

    A bump for Faustus (AKA Santiago). He put a new PR4 on my Bandit wheel with some good conversation on the way.

    Nice work, I'll be back.

    Any vendors from Seattle area who buy used bikes?

    The situation is: I'm a guy from Ukraine, right now I'm in Florida, I'm going to buy a bike here and in August ride thought all of the US to Seattle. And there I will need to sell the bike before flying back to Ukraine. Obviously, at reduced market price for quicker sale.

    There is a chance my friend will join me, so it can be two bikes, probably DR650, KLR650 or DL650.

    Talk to Dave:

    That's what Google suggested me first, I have already mailed them using their site, but to no response. :(

    Ride Motorsports in Woodinville always has a large supply of used bikes they might buy .

    This looks promising, thanks!

    I live in Issaquah and need to have a tire mounted on my DR650.

    Looking at Google, I-90 motorsports seems closest.

    Anyone have any recommendations on where to get a tire mounted?


    (I know I need to learn how to do this myself, but now is not the time - I'm in between houses and just want to get the bike on the road.)

    I-90 has rates that are competitive (or cheaper than) with other bike shops; Just take the wheel there to have the new tire mounted.

    No affiliation . . . . . .

    Your welcome.:wink:

    Anyone have a suggestion on where I can get a trailer hitch installed on my RX350? Lexus dealer wants a fortune...

    Edit: Sorry - this is Eastside Seattle area - Bellevue/Issaquah.

    I used these guys for an install of a Curt Hitch on a Toyota Venza. The work was sound, and they stand behind their product. Probably not as slick as the Toyota factory kit, though, which usually installs into the wiring harness very cleanly. the Curt kit is pretty basic and runs direct to the battery.

    No direct experience, but I was impressed with what I saw from these guys at a bike expo a couple of years ago. Worth a call, I'd say.....

    You might check with Uhaul. Some of the bigger shops do trailer hitches.

    Just make sure whoever does it uses a harness that plugs in like the Toyota/Lexus harness. I've seen places use scotch locks and it can screw up your ABS, cruise, and anything else associated with that ECU.
    I worked on a Highlander once that the cruise would accelerate then shut off when the turn signals were turned on. ABS light would come on as well and there would be a code stored. It was because uhaul spliced into the rear harness and it screwed with the ECU.

    Anyone know a good BMW mechanic around the Tri-Cities area of Washington?

    What do you need done? Possibly one of us local BMW guys could help (as long as it's an R bike in my case). Prosser just got a BMW dealer. I have no idea how good they are.

    Probably too far for you but I mount and balance tires here in The Dalles Oregon. I charge $20 per tire (wheele off bike). Only down side is you have to listen to my war stories while I'm working.

    I found an interesting shop in Aberdeen that did the mounts and balances for $25.00 ea.

    I assumed he had a machine, but figured out afterward, he did not. A little of the paint on the wheels flaked off from the levers. Other than that, I think he did a decent job. I didn't know he was going to balance them as well. I put both wheels on my static balancer, and they're spot on.

    I'll recommend him if you just cant get the tire done yourself, but if you're particular about your wheels marring, the next lowest price I found was CycleGear Tacoma at $40.00 per wheel with a 24 hour turn around...

    Hi Inmates,

    I recently opened a suspension services shop here in North Idaho, I am a former suspension tech for Race Tech so I know their product line better then and other shop in the PNW and have brought some new suspension companies into our product line. Regardless if you are a do it yourselfer or someone that just wants it done for them NorWest Suspension can take care of your suspension needs.

    If you know of a bike night that is reasonably local and would like to see a suspension tech at the bike night to perform suspension adjustments then by all means let me know. I have been to the Cycle gear bike night in Spokane and plan on returning later this month.
