What do you charge for centerstand repairs & etc.?

For Renner free. That's because you've helped me out a lot. But for anyone else not much. $20 or so depending on how much work is needed. But if the stand turns into a parallelogram then it's toast.

This center stand was cracked all the way down on both sides where the stand met the pavement and missing the foot arm. The cracks were easy to fix and I'm going to leave off the foot thing.

It's off to powder coating tomorrow Should get it back in a week.

Toaster side pannels are a little beat up. I'm just going to clean them up a little more and leave them as is. It will give the bike some character




Slowly starting the engine work. Only 58,000 miles sounds like it's just broken in

You're project is giving me hope. I bought a R75/5"project" bike that's in about the same shape as yours. It was headed to the parts bin but now I'm having second thoughts...

Agreed, but it was missing the foot thingie and I didn't feel like fabing up a new one, and if I did it would have looked crappy. Also, I don't like center stands, unless working in a shop, I cant trust them over side stands in public. Also, I'm going to go with a aftermarket side stand, stock one is toast.

I am amazed that the engine turns over-- I'd have expected it to be locked up solid.

Nice patina on the crankcase-- you gonna leave it?

you're too generous.
I think to date I've only "helped" by talking at you in a vague and rambling sort of way while under the influence of botique beer.
So for that you'll work for free, everybody else gets 50% off the good-guy discount. Is this a business model?
You need to be paid for your time & skill beyond the materials expense.
$40 or I'll take my business elsewhere.

Really... at the rate you advertise I think you'll soon corner the market on centerstand repair.
It won't hurt to earn a little toward funding the phoenix.
