Sorry for posting in Moto, but I know you gurus don't go to the Mechanical forum as much as here.

The shop I got my discounts at went out of biz after 30+ years in Costa Mesa, CA. I can't remember the last time I had to pay retail for anything, I'm bummed.

I need some advice as to where I can drop off my head to have my seats re-cut, without having to pay too much. Would Q&E be an option? are they still in biz? Really, I'm looking for the master that used to pick my head up from my local shop and bring it back the next day all bitchen.

Also any line on OEM parts? I'm just looking for a mid-level deal; I'm responsible for 3-4 race bikes and spend thousands annually.

I just dropped my head off at Gustin. Thanks for the info Lou, I wonder how long it would've taken me to find them on my own. Told Eric you sent me. Lou and Vital come through.

Probably see ya at speedway.
