Shop Ranking Question

Does anyone know anything about the following shops?
DGY Motorsports
216 Ogden Avenue
Downers Grove, IL 60515
Phone: 630-971-2602
Fax: 630-971-8991

AND

The Zone
4520 W. 63rd Street Chicago IL 60629
Phone: (773) 767-7280 Fax: (773) 767-7605

A friend of mine (who lives near one of those) needs to fix up his bike and drop it off to an honest mechanic, or better yet: the shop guys need to pick it up from his place as it is sitting dead in his garage.

Thanks for info!

First to POST use the search button as some would say.


Call chicago performance melrose park he picks bikes up and is honest and tiny in case you need to whoop that ass

go time traveler style and go back in time, fuck his grandma, then shoot forward in time and then fuck his mom. Then return back to present state and call him a the product of two incest whores and hes your son and show video of you plowing the both members of his family. .

the BCS had DGY ranked in the top 25 a few times this year, but they've had a pretty weak schedule this season and lost to a couple unranked shops.

its gonna be expensive at either of those 2, i promise, and they are not close to each other(which one is he near?), tell us what kind of bike and what does it need, that would narrow it down a bit, some of us fix bikes but if its a rusty old intruder or savage we probably wouldnt touch it

What kind of work is he getting done? I haven't been to the service dept at either of those shops, but the parts guys at DGY are stupid. I've been given the wrong part more times than the right one. They don't have a problem exchanging it, but it's always a PITA using them.

Never worked with the zone, but i do know the guys at DGY, nice people but i cant speak as to there service as ive never got work done there.


Make life easy, Contact Ken at Chicago Performance. Good guy, Good work, and Local too...............And as C2M said In case he screws up hes tiny so you dont need to worry.


and Ken.....I dont want to hear about you being "tightly Packed" Im going to be having nightmares tonight

Everyone needs a healthy way to relax, mine Church, and two wheels, a stretch of winding road, and a pipe loud enough to give me headaches and make squirrels explode. (Fixed curtousey of PWRMAD)

Nothing is impossible the second we say ill try your already admiting you can be defeated, and the second you say i cant or its to hard youve already failed.

To all: thanks for your responses.
What he's got is a Vulcan 900. Year of production is unknown to me.

The problem that he's trying to fix: bike does not start any more -- and that's all I know, which is nothing.
About a month ago he paid someone to fix the bike. The bike got fixed, well... it seemed like it had been, or there might be multiple issues with it. Bottom line: it does not start and we live just about 1hr+ apart, so I cannot come over to his place and take a look at it any time soon.

Also, if he can get it down to Resurrection, Gus might be able to help as well.

I know the owner and head mechanic at the Zone. Cyril the mechanic is very good and is also a guy who rides on the racetrack. He has been working there for a long ass time.


Also if the guy is anywhere near chicago performance Ken can knock it out with no problem.
