I have some bodywork repair and repaint needed for my one-of-a-kind carbon/kevlar custom painted bodywork.

The guy I used in the past retired and went to Wisconsin. My backup retired and moved to the Iron Range. I've stopped at 3 different custom bike shops without luck.

Is there anyone local who you can recommend for this work?

Thanks!

Just some stupidity on my part about 8 years back.
Cold morning, heading to work on my RC51 to give it a season ending warmup and fill-up with non-oxy before parking it for the winter.
Pulled onto the 50mph road a block from home and had the front end loft with a just magnificent 1/4 mile long power wheelie. Light turned red and that hooligan a-hole living in my lizard brain-stem said "Hey, a block long stoppie would look soooo rad (he's from the 80's) after that rocking wheelie!" and my right hand squeezed with that little extra aggression and...

BAM!

I'm sliding down the road next to my bike.

Cold day, cold tires, stupidity at the helm. No warning squirm, just immediately on the ground.

This is my RC51-B bike which was taken apart to have parts to diagnose and get my RC51-A bike running. After a long down time I've decided to get the RC51-B bike fixed up as well.

It was worth asking for the story, hahaha. Sorry that happened, but at least it's entertaining for us today.
