Need '89 VN750 Work Done (Georgia)

I'm in the Marietta, Georgia (near Atlanta) area.

I have an '89 VN750 that needs some work done. Tuneups, spline greasing, gas gauge float replaced, and front brake handle adjusted.

Anyone in this area a bike mechanic and willing to do the work? I am *not* a mechanic, and have zero desire to do the work myself.

Anyone?

I understand your not being a mechanic, but "zero desire to do the work myself" puzzles me. To most people, at least motorcycle enthusiasts, working on their bikes is almost as enjoyable as riding them. Oh well, to each their own, as they say. Jerry.

I am a motorcyclist, NOT a biker.

Nah, I'm one of the minority. I absolutely detest working on cars / bikes.

Love riding a bike though. Just no desire to work on 'em. I'd much rather pay someone who enjoys it.

LOL. Why do I think that getting Lance to grease splines is like hiring a brain surgeon to deal with an ingrown toenail?

Reminds me of Jeremy Clarkson from Top Gear in the UK - a 'avid car enthusiast' is an understatement.

I recall an episode where he was driving some model of super-duper Ferrari (is there any other kind?) and made a rhetorical question/statement to the audience: 'I suppose you want to see the engine...'. He fumbled around, trying to determine if the engine was in the front or the back, opened the hood and stated 'yup, it's got an engine'. The then proceeded to get back in and drive the thing...

Well, I hope to have him do more than just grease the splines...

Needs to have all the stuff suggested in the Vulcan Verses done to it as well... *grin*
