Well I just picked up a couple of boxes of parts of what used to by my SV from what used to be 4&6.  Does anyone have any suggestions for someone in the Chicago/SE WI area that would be good to finish the build?  Would I be better off just selling the parts and starting over?  Or should I just go back to playing golf?  Its getting really difficult to trust people these days.

Thanks for the kind words guys. Klebs, Id love to talk with you sometime. SV's are my specialty and I have been lucky enough to put together some of the faster bikes in the MW, or so I have heard from an occasional competitor. I can provide references, as well as results from past races. Give me a call sometime if you have any questions or just want to shoot the scat. My number is 314 574 1498 or 314 541 3435. Thanks man and hope to talk to you soon.

Did I miss a notice regarding 4&6 going out of business? Or is this another satisfied customer?

I got a call today saying Jim went AWAL and that they needed to be out of there spot.  Ed said that I needed to come pick up my bike (really just a bunch of parts at this point) so it didn't get thrown out on the street. 

To be honest, some of my experiences with the whole motorcycle industry have been pretty off putting.  Not sure if its bad luck or bad choices, but it seems like the industry could use a few more honest people.

This time, I would like to find someone that will finish the job.  I'll make some calls soon to those suggested.  Thanks for the help.

Ben has built/rebuilt/worked on my buddy Hernan's SVs, and those bikes are fast, and given their  high level of tune, very reliable. I think you did some LW races last year; if so, you'll recall #619, either the blue or green bike. Moreover, Ben was able to pinpoint a problem in one of the bikes which several other builders missed. If I were an SV guy, I'd definitely be taking my bikes to Ben. (Unfortunately, I'm not, and I don't think his bikes will beat my Ducs this year - sorry, Ben. Nate, maybe you should sell your SV and start over with a nice 2 valve desmo...)
