Murph's

I am in "need" of some farkles for my Wee - crash bars, skidplate, kb brace, fender extender - and I have been trying to reach someone at Murphs's for the last week - via email and phone message, with no response. I do not have an account with them yet, and I would like to speak with someone there before I order ( I have twice been the victim of online credit car theft.) Has anyone been in touch with Murph in the last week or so? ( from 06/03/2010.)

Thanks for your help...

I know he has had the "answering machine from hell" issues for about a week or so now, but apparently now has that taken care of. I've talked to him this week, know he's busy though.

Great fork brace and mirror extenders.I never talked to the guy. Just sent "Paypal" one day and a little while later....bingo.
Sometimes small biz owners have to take time away. You will get your stuff and it will be worth the wait. If you got the brace,undo the pinch bolts and be patient. Small tap here and there with a rubber mallet and your rollin'.

I have traded email with Muph's with regards to parts availability and fit, they have always replied within a couple of days. Order thru paypal with them and parts arrived in another couple of days. The whole process took about a week on both purchases .... One in January the other in April this year.

Murphs

Just talked with Murph yesterday....stuff is on it's way via FedEx.... any feedback on the KB fork brace for riding in the wind? ( I just realized why they built the wind turbines on Goldendale ridge in WA.

Feel safe with Murph, he's been a Cogger for over a decade and has sold thousands of items over the years with no complaint. His wife Patty was helping him at one time, Murph used to work days in a papermill and sell motorbike stuff at night and on the weekends. His hope has always been to quit the mill and open a storefront. I assure you his intentions are honorable, just keep calling and you'll get someone.
