One of the best V-Twin mechanics and one of the best Big Dog Techs (LEVEL 3) anywhere is Thomas Coleman just north of you in Burlington. Works at Lifestyles and only on Big Dogs and American made V-Twins. Does not work of foreign shit :2thumbs:It is obvious there are no great wrenches on the west coast so I will humbly take the honers for Washington State. (the one on the Pacific Ocean ) not really but I try
Jamie's installed my wire plus, and did my 2500K Service. Kevin (Service Manager) hooked me up. Real nice guy, its great to have them so close by. Up in Greenbay Vandervest was my other option but they stopped working on Big Dogs, recently. My brother in law took his K9 for the wire plus install as well. Great work these guys do. Will bring in my Pit for the 5K service. Not familiar with the mechanics by name. Your down in Chicago, have you tried Hollywood Cycles Brookfield, Il....I hear they work on Big Dogs as well.ro360s -
I bought my K9 from Jamie Strasser in 2009 and had his mechanic Dan Abels work on my bike until last year when I started doing my own basic maintenance.
It'll be due for 10K service next Spring and I'd like to go back to Jamie's except I hear Dan's no longer with them...
Are you familiar with Jamie's mechanics working there now and do you vouch for their knowledge/expertise/care with Big Dogs?
He must be in an on-again status with them... last couple times I was through there, he wasn't working with them anymore. Shame... really would have rather him work on my bike than Brian there.One of the best V-Twin mechanics and one of the best Big Dog Techs anywhere is Thomas Coleman just north of you in Burlington.
