Oh, let me tell you, this guy is one unbelievable hack. Not only will he not fix what he says he will fix, he won't even replace the parts in which you pay for. Total scammer. BEWARE, BEWARE, BEWARE. I brough a recently purchased 1970's Honda CB450 to John for carb cleaning and tune up. He picked up the bike from my Chicago condo in a beat up pick-up truck ($75) and told me he would have it running like new. He brings it back three days later and it won't start, after several times and much throttling he gets it to start, even rides it through the alley a couple times for good measure. Turns it off and it won't start again. He tells me "oh it may be out of gas." Now at this point I'm trusting his word as a mechanic (big mistake) anyway, he leaves the bike there, later I buy some gas for and check the tank and it's full of gas. I try and start it and it won't start, I call him immediately to fix it, again. That was three weeks ago. He says that he's coming back to fix it and never comes, total liar. Blames it on me, the customer, this guy is a complete and utter hack. I had take my bike to a legitimate mechanic and who told me that my carbs haven't been cleaned and my plugs are fouled and haven't been changed in months if not a year. This guy is a horrible mechanic, total scammer. And all for what, a few bucks. I only wanted my bike fixed I didn't care about the money, but this guy John only scammed me out of a few hundred dollars. In the end I have to pay a REAL motorcycle mechanic to fix a minor issues that he couldn't or wouldn't. Don't believe a word he says, read these posts. I wish I had read a previous poster before hiring him. John lies and makes every excuse under the sun. No body cares about your problems John, just fix the bike. Anyway,
John will not fix your motorcycle problems, he'll make them worse. And
he'll tell you it's probably something you did. This guy is horrible.
That's JOHN BREWER
