    If there is one I have a few things I would be interested in looking into.

    It might be worth a shot to call the different shops on island as well. I know the last few times I have been to Montgomery they have had a few wrecked bikes out back.

    TLC is a joke. I went to the guy (forget his name, the owner/main guy) back in 2005 or 2006 looking for an alternator for my tank 89 zx-1000r and he wanted more than $300 for one!! I had quotes from motorcycle salvage yards from the mainland for ~$125 shipped, and TLC dropped the price instantly to ~$150 and heckled me for not paying the difference, and wouldn't go any lower to match.

    needless to say, I ordered the alternator from a mainland yard for less and never looked in to TLC again.

    Its good that you shopped around before making a purchase! But, for someone who needs a part right away and can't wait the shipping time, they'd probably pay his asking price. Must be a hard business because for most people, motorcycles are not a necessity so they could afford to wait...

    Everytime I call TLC the dude tells me he'll call me back then calls me n says he don't got it. But at least he calls me back some people wouldn't call, that pisses me off.

    LOL hayn. you and your funny images. Maybe I was bit harsh on him the first time around, you are right, he did drop the price nearly $200, it was frustrating how he would drop so much instantly but not come the extra 20ish to make the deal. and its true, i didnt need the part on the spot so I could afford to wait a few days for the mail.

    if you need a part NOW, then TLC is probably your best (and only besides CL) place to check.

    i like to support the the locals when possible, but robery is robery and sometimes if a a person treats me right he/she will get my bussines even if is a little more, honesty is the name of the game, you shouldn't try to get rich by robbing people when they are down...
