Complaint Detail(s)

10/24/2015 Problems with Product/Service | Read Complaint Details

Additional Notes

Complaint: I have written a complete accounting of the dealings with this shop, in detail, and would like to send it as an attachment, but, primarily, the problem is that when they first took my motorcycle apart and gave me an estimate that included new seats and windshield, I was given an estimate of 3-4 thousand dollars and every time I have gone back they keep adding more thousands of dollars. Right now, we are up to over 6,ooo dollars and they say, now, that we are far from the end of the costs to me. This has been going on for two years after I delivered the original 4,000 dollars

Desired Settlement: I want them to finish the job and provide repairs and additional accessories I asked for at the price originally promised and other funds returned to me. I have given these people enough money.

Business Response: Mr. ******* ***** Commissioned Me (Cycle Specialties) on 02/01/2013
to as he stated in the complaint (Repair, to showroom condition) his
1998 Honda Valkyrie. I hired a professional motorcycle towing company to
pick up his Motorcycle from his residence. When the tow company got to
the motorcycle they found the bike sitting in his yard sunk into the
lawn, covered with a tarp that had rotted off the bike due to
deterioration. The seats were rotted, the tires were flat and rotted,
and the bike that was a Yellow and Cream two tone paint was green with
moss and algae. All of the chrome pieces were Severely Rusted and Pitted
beyond salvage. Please note this Motorcycle has many chrome and
finished Aluminum pieces.
  I then had a conversation with Mr. *****
about the condition of his motorcycle and gave him an "Estimate" of 3-4
thousand dollars. I also discussed with him the value of the motorcycle
at that time and the fact that restoring it would exceed it's value. He
again stated to me that he wanted the motorcycle to be like the day he
bought it!  On 03/10/2013 (Documented) I received a $2000.00 deposit to
start work on his motorcycle. As we started peeling away the layers the
layers of damage it became very apparent that the damage would cost more
than i estimated.
   I then spent the next year ( 03/20/2013 to
02/20/2014) trying to get contact Mr. *****. During this time period I
had exhausted his $2000.00 in parts alone and needed to discuss with him
everything that yet needed to be purchased.  After getting a hold of
Mr. ***** in 2014 he apologized for not being able to get in touch with
him as he had been in and out of the hospital. We then discussed the
parts that still needed to be purchased (Over $2000.00 worth) he agreed
and came down and gave me another $1000.00 deposit (Documented) on
02/25/2014 with the promise within a week or two of bringing more. I
repeatedly attempted to get a hold of him It wasn't until 07/14/2014
that i received another $800.00. deposit (Documented). I again began
work on his motorcycle until I exhausted the $1800.00 in parts and
   I currently have $4185.00 in parts and $2400.00 in labor
totaling $6585.00 invested in the restoration of this motorcycle. For
the year of 2015 I have received 3 more payments all documented as
follows. 01/15/2015 $400.00, 04/10/2015 $300.00 and 09/12/2015 $1000.00.
This totals $5500.00 leaving $1085.00 owed to Cycle Specialties. There
currently has been no Storage Fee's attached to this job For the Month's
that the motorcycle sat while waiting to contact Mr. *****. At this
point I will not complete any repairs until current bill is paid in full
and sufficient funds are supplied to purchase the remainder of parts
and labor needed to complete repairs.
