GS1100E Help

long story short, a friend has a 1982 GS1100E that's been sitting at a shop for a freaking YEAR! they've been dragging their feet and claim they can't do or find anybody to work on the heads of this bike. no need to point out lousy they've treated my buddy, i already know.

can anybody recommend a decent shop that has experience with this bike?

Experience with that bike .

Man I'm getting old .

Do any of you guys know the KREED the GS1100E has in drag racing ?

It may still have the most wins (VANCE & HINES) ring a bell

These shops now days have to move forward so fast the OLD help are the real hero's.

Ya know they wont even work on those old bikes. It brakes my heart.

Save an old bike.

Any body can sign on the dotted line.
