other repair and parts options in Santa Cruz, Bolivia
I had the 50.000 km service on my BMW 1200 GSA done at
Juan Carlos Cespedes
Av. Banzer 656
A few caveats:
1. Although the service was performed well enough as I can say now 7000km later, I definitely felt overcharged.
2. A friend needed to have his Wilbers rear shock fixed (didn't hold gas). The "specialist" mechanic said "no problem, I've done this many times". Result: He lost a piece while dissembling it, the shock held neither gas nor oil afterwards and my friend bounced on the spring alone all the way to Asuncion, PY, where he got a new rear shock.
3. Not sure about the street address, could be Juan Carlos' private address. Best call and ask. Or contact Andar Motors S.R.L. - BMW Bolivia
the local BMW car dealer. They do sell a few bikes, but Juan Carlos' shop does all the technical stuff for them. You could ask for Nicolas Demmer, phone 3-3353160 who also speaks German.
Also: Juan Carlos' brother Pablo Cespedes runs
Av. Christo Rendedor (ex Banzer) No. 950
Pablo also sells clothing, tools, etc., I even found a tubeless repair kit at his shop.
