    Hello All, I have recently brought second hand RE Bullet STD 500cc 2002 model.

    Since I am new in Mumbai, have no idea which mechanic is good. Need some serious checks as engine is making rattling sound and is growing everyday.

    Can someone suggest good and reliable mechanic. I live in Andheri W, Mumbai.
    Found few mech in google like PR enterprise but also heard its very expensive.!!

    It would be great if anyone could suggest a good service center for servicing. Thanks in advance.
    Ah this is the beauty of xbhp that it discusses regarding bikes like ct 100 and other smaller bikes. All cannot own big bikes like cbr etc. But all have the right to own a bike and enjoy however small or large it is. This is why I have a strong liking to xbhp. This approach is missing in other forums (won't like to name them)

    Agree with you. Recently I went to a Bajaj ASC for an engine rebuild (rebore) for my discover 100 4g. I knew that all the other parts in the engine were good as I maintain the bike in good shape. The ASC quoted approx 10k for this job with a new bore piston kit and approx 8000 for the rebore with existing bore kit. I thought this was ridiculous and got it done at a FNG for 3k including parts and labor. As expected all the other engine parts as mentioned by the mechanic were in excellent shape and only the bore kit and valves needed to be replaced.
    I would suggest never go to an ASC until you have loads of cash to burn.

    For regular services I do them myself as I have the required tools. Also I own a Bajaj spirit which I bought about two years ago (used) and not even once I have given it to a mechanic including opening of clutch etc.

    Thanks

    Hello there, If you dont mind going a bit far for getting a service. I can suggest one mechanic near to bhandup station bang opposite to RE show room. His name is Paras and is well experienced with Bullet. He doesnt charge too much either. PM me for his number as I cannot share someones private number in open forum for privacy reasons.

    Hello,

    I am in the process of acquiring one 1979 model Honda CD185 twin and would like to know any good mechanics who have restored such a bike in bangalore before.

    Any help with spares will also be appreciated.

    Hi,
    I am looking to restore my grandfathers lambretta. I would be posting pictures of it pretty soon.
    Small update on the current condition
    1. The body is partly rusted
    2. the engine has been kept in an dismantled condition.
    3. Its in Kolkata, so i need a mechanic who could solve the issue there.
    4. Although being in such a state my grandpa loves his scooters( he owns a 94' chetak too) so the mechanic should know have the proper knowledge about the scooter as he might look old(he is 89) but he should be ready to answer a lot of questions.

    Any help would be appreciated
