Question Looking for bike mechanic

To All,

I used to do all my own repairs but because of life and space I haven't been able to for the last 18 months. I am looking for a reliable mechanic who is familiar with out bikes (I have a 1980 XS Eleven Special) and live close to San Marcos, Texas (between Austin and San Antonio on IH35) I have all the parts needed to fix my ride I just need someone who has a covered space and the skills to make the needed repairs. You can contact me at kryton3298@hotmail.com if you know someone or you yourself fit the bill. I miss riding my bike and I want to get back to it. Your help with this matter is appreciated.

Thanks for the reply, I appreciate the response. I'm trying to find out how this would work. I assume I would need to transport my bike and the parts to you. My cage at present is a sub-compact and can't tow anything. I appreciate the offer but I was hoping for someone closer. If I don't get any other responses I will definitely take you up on your offer.

Thanks,
