    Exclamation Looking for a mechanic in Oakland county

    Hey I'm a newbie, just got a 1986 Honda Shadow VT 500 3 weeks ago. I was doing great, riding well, went out to go to work one morning and when I turned the gas on it started leaking. I am looking for someone who could come look at it/repair it as the shops ive contacted tell me its too old for them to work on.

    Thanks in advance!

    I know that Junkyard Jon usually works on bikes, but I think he's middle of a move.

    It could be as simple as a dry rotted fuel line if the bike sat for any period of time
