Sydney, Australia - motorbike repair shop
A good friend of mine, Tex, runs a car and bike repair shop 35 minutes west of the centre of Sydney in Minchinbury.
He is a seasoned bike traveller himself, holding the "around Australia on a bike record" which he completed in 1978 in a time of 8 days, 23 hours and 57 minutes. His current claim to fame is touring with his Blue Heeler x Dingo named Cash. Cash sits on the tank of Tex's RSVR Factory and gets extremely cranky if he's left at home.
His workshop is open from early in the morning to late at night (7am to 7pm or later) - at least 6 days a week. He works on all types of bikes and has a lot of contacts in the bike industry so seems to be able to lay his hands on anything at short notice.
I can guarantee that Tex will go out of his way to help you if needed. You can contact the workshop on 02.9675.5888. Tell him Sharon sent you...
