Do you know someone who can work on my bike?

We get this question asked a lot at our Cyclebitz apparel, parts & accessories shop. Most established motorcycle dealers will not work on older bikes. This leaves a lot of non-technical riders, folks who do not have the abiity, whether it is lack of required technical skills or simply not having the space & tools, scrambling to find someone to perform maintenance or repairs.

If you are local to WNC, more specifically around the greater Asheville & Hendersonville NC area, below is a list of fellow riders, some may have a professional shop and some are "on the side" mechanics, who can or are willing to take on certain work.

Cyclebitz is in no way associated or connected with any individual or shop listed below.
This is one of our ways to support the sport and help connecting people.

Do you have some skills & tools and/or want to help fellow riders or make some extra $?
Email us your details to be on this local resources page.
