Italy Mestre mechanic ?

Hi folks,

I have a Suzuki VS1400 in Mestre in need of new clutch plates. I have all the spare parts but require a mechanic to do the work. I am currently in Australia but returning soon. Can anyone recommend a mechanic.

Regards,
Mark.

There are certainly plenty of bikes down here, and no shortage of bike mechanics. You'll find some repair shops right by the main train station in mestre. If I remember correctly there are 2 of them about 100 metres away, if you leave by the main entrance and walk towards the right, just past the bus station.

If that didn't help, here are the results from the yellow pages:

Officina Moto Mestre | PagineGialle.it

And if none of that helps at all, then please PM me and we can probably work something out, I'm 120 kms away and I'll be glad to make some phone calls.

Ciao!

No problem, I'd be happy to call up and arrange a time when you could take your bike. I forgot to mention that there is even an official suzuki dealer, in Marghera (just next to Mestre): Motospazio

I'm sorry that I have absolutely no experience with any of these places, it might be a good idea to ask also on Forum Moto e... (one of the biggest local forums), I'm sure someone from around Mestre will be able to answer, in english.
