Question Looking for a good motorcycle mechanic in the Philadelphia, PA area

Hey,
I'm looking for a good motorcycle mechanic that's in my area (Philadelphia, PA). I have a 1990 600R Ninja. Its missing a seat (either my aunt threw it away or someone stole it, either way I don't have a seat.) When I bought the bike it was running. I'd like to make it a project bike but I'm having trouble tracking down some parts. Also, did I mention I'm in college??? So finding a good yet reasonable mechcanic with ok prices is great. Thanks for the help!
Rudy

sportbikes.net has a forum called philly riders, you might get more local action on that,

try local classifieds for the seat you might find someone who will work on your bike, they might not have the part you need, but if it isn't a fence for a chop shop it could be a packrat type that likes to work on kawasakis for fun, just make sure they aren't all talk and make sure they have some references, you might even be able to find an employee of a local dealership that does work on the side, just make sure the work is up to standard,

good luck,

if you don't mind throwing it in a pickup and going up to the top of the northeast extension, murray's kawasaki has a ton of old kawi stuff.

try The Bike Works in Roslyn. My buddy and his dad run it. Its probably about 2-3 miles north of what was known as Bever College, (I cant think its new name). Its just before a bridge on the right hand side
