N. GA airhead mechanic?

I'm looking for recommendations for a reliable airhead mech. in the north Georgia area (I'm in Blue Ridge). It's just a busted shifter spring on my R100GS, but will require going into the gear box to get to it. Anyway, does anyone have any first hand experience with pros in the area?

Thanks!
Bill

If I had an airhead I would go see the guys at MotoCompound over in Rossville. The info is in my signature. Tell them Dirty sent you.

Also, heard very good things about Wes at Apex. Blain.hale had him do a bunch of work to his 74 R90.
