My son and I started a motorcycle build earlier this year. The donor bike sat for years, and needs a lot of work. Once we got the carbs off, we decided they were bad enough we needed to get someone to clean them professionally. We found a guy in ND that was doing cleaning and rebuilding of these specific style carbs, and his price was good, so we decided to send our carbs off the be cleaned, rebuilt, and painted. That was several months ago. I have been very patient in e-mail corespondance, and have been promised they will be done in a few days with each e-mail. (maybe 4 e-mails over a few months time) The last time I was told the carbs would be done in a few days was 4 weeks ago. I sent an e-mail again this past week, and now I am getting no response. At this point I get the feeling that this guy has no intention of returning my carbs. For all I know, he rebuilt them and sold them.
Is there anyone near Abercrombie ND who would be willing to ride over and try to retrieve my son's carbs for me? I'm not looking for someone to rough the guy up or anything. I just want the carbs back, or a solid confirmation that the guy doesn't have them any longer. We need to move along.
