Bike shop in Milan?

Hi Inmates, I'm on a 3 month tour or Europe on a Honda VFR. Being a moron I dropped my bike in Naples and my clutch lever is bent and missing a mirror, which is not so good for riding in italian cities. Could also stand to have an oil change done soon and pretty sure my scottoiler has run dry.

I'm heading to Milan tomorrow and will be there a couple days... I've found shops before but not had any luck in getting what I need, and most don't speak any english. I don't speak any Italian more or less. So, if anyone knows a spot there, or after that I'm heading to south France and then Spain, that you know would help a guy out...

I used a mechanic on viale Corsica. Didn't speak English but we communicated and he seemed very competent. Sorry that I can't remember name but on the south side of the street.

Cool, I saw via Corsica on my way in today, that's pretty close to me I think. Thanks for the suggestion I will check it out!
