Gearheads...Who works on their own shait?

For any reason....
If your frugal, a hobbist, ya want it done right, a racer, track guy, tuner geek, boost freak, Nos lunatic, Dirt rider, sledder, Off road enthusiast, classic car lover....whatever..

Who wrenches?

Tune your bike's suspension, naws your neon, twin turbo your big block, index your spark plugs, degree your cams, Lincoln lock your axle, swap injectors while drinking beer and making a dummy talk, or just diagnose and replace most parts on your daily driver....


POST UP,....BIATCHES
Lets hear it.
So far, I know Speedy, Lonnie, Webb, James, Nick, and Judge do...
Who else?

I do everything myself...
last year it was tear down, and stretch, polish the frame/swingarm... paint the bike blue...

this year it's a whole new transmission, turbo setup, and paint again...

I love getting lost in the whole thing, and trying to find my way back out...

thats half the fun, theres no way I'm letting some one touch it unless, they have a very good reputation and it's simply somelthing I can't solve myself. Think about it, your going to do 150 on bike that some one else could have messed up a part on, yikes! I trust myself, and no one else. You never know what the hell some idiot guy at the shop might have done for forgot to do.
