Thanks

Good site. Google search (mine anyway) didn't turn up any posts from that site. Thanks for the links.

I've had 2 wheels fixed by McWheel, one a front SV wheel bent in 4 places and the other a rear SV wheel that had a 6" gash and needed welding

good turn around time and good work

He did my front Strom

It worked out but I had to be very insistent with repeated phone calls and ultimately drove there and got it. It was done but had to be pretty mouthy about it.

When the dust settled he charged more and was within $50 of a used one from Safari Cycle.

It has been fine since though

I just had the front one straightened for the Wee. Installed it yesterday, seems perfect. Cost was $150 which was a bit more than I figured. BUT, the paint job they put on it was first class ( Possibly wasted on the wee but I appreciate good work ). Literally better than new. Maybe that will give owners an idea of cost, at least in the Houston, Tx area.
