Mechanics for older Boxers

Hello Everyone -

Do any of you know of mechanics able (or willing) to work on a Boxer from 1986 - an R80. It's not a basket case by any means but does need someone who knows their stuff and knows these MCs.

I am in Liverpool but willing to get the Boxer to a mechanic in other places on this island.

with thanks, Stenton

There is a BMW workshop on the Wirral called MotoRevive.

Run by a guy called Ted.

That's me by the way. But I'm not taking on anymore work until Jan 2024.

If you can't wait, you could try Roy in Preston. (RGM)

Membership - help keep us going!

Horizons Unlimited is not a big multi-national company, just two people who love motorcycle travel and have grown what started as a hobby in 1997 into a full time job (usually 8-10 hours per day and 7 days a week) and a labour of love. To keep it going and a roof over our heads, we run events all over the world with the help of volunteers; we sell inspirational and informative DVDs; we have a few selected advertisers; and we make a small amount from memberships.

You don't have to be a Member to come to an HU meeting, access the website, or ask questions on the HUBB. What you get for your membership contribution is our sincere gratitude, good karma and knowing that you're helping to keep the motorcycle travel dream alive. Contributing Members and Gold Members do get additional features on the HUBB. Here's a list of all the Member benefits on the HUBB.
