Seeking welding guru in Oakland or bay area???

Hi
So in June a need to do some work on my DRZ400 before going on a longer trip again.

And there two things where I am going to need help from someone who can weld.. AND have acces to the right equipment.

1: My Happy Trails pannier bracket need to be fixed. I have had it welded before in a few places so would like to reinforce it a little, so it wont fall apart again.


2: I have a larger Gas tank on the bike. and I would very much like to have a bracket made that can stabilise that gas tank.
Something like what this guy have done on his XR650R.



So if you can help please contact me via mail/PM

Dennis Echeverri at Norman Racing Group in Berkeley is the probably the BEST in the Bay Area. He's easy to find, right off of Gilman St. by Berkeley Yamaha/Honda. Call first.

Usually some eye candy in the shop too.



PM sent (soon)

Late to the party, but Dennis is a super nice guy, humble and always gets your stuff right.
Been to him several times for small jobs, and he almost always does them on the spot.
I like to bring cash, which seems like less of a hassle for everyone, right?
