Bike work

#1 Post by megawatt » Tue Aug 02, 2016 9:10 pm

As I travel north from Derbyshire to Scotland and back south again on the west side of the country, I'm hoping to pick up some paid work. Ideally doing services, maintenance, modifications on motorbikes. I have most tools and if I need anything I'll buy it. I'm cheaper than anybody else and I will teach you to do your own maintenance as I work. Pm me for my mobile number and we'll chat about it?

Ooo yeah I would use you to teach me how to do some bits on the bike. Wrong timing though, nothing needs doing yet (fingers crossed haha)

How about doing a bit of basic service tuition? Oil change, chain adjustment, brake fluid and such.

I will if enough interest. I did so in an earlier post, but most responders didn't take it seriously.

Stick an advert on a Chinese Bike forum, you'll be rich (or in prison) before you know it :mrgreen:

If you come back over this way at any point in your travels, give me a shout - Crystal has a rather unhappy old GS500 on the driveway and it either needs more love than I can give it or a second opinion to tell her to scrap the darn thing already :lol:

Don't bother with the "adverts" on Youtube...you will earn nothing.
Why don't you put out your qualifications/apprentice time served details etc
Im in York and have 2 bikes that need repair...I have all the tools you need/heated garage (yes!!)...and can help you with youtube/websites etc...and I pay
Im time poor and cash poorer..but can afford to pay you if you let me know your hourly rate
