G'Day all,
I'm planning a trip for later this year and are thinking about taking a quad bike with me. I'm hopeing some one local can give me some info on a guy, located in the Penrith NSW area, who sells/sold used quads. I lost his details and all my searches come up blank.
Regards,
Barry.

Hi Capt,

I remember seeing his ads in Trading Post some time back, he was called quad repairer or something if that helps. I think he operated from home, but from memory he was quite expensive. I was looking for 3 quads for shooting and got them privatley way cheaper than he was selling similar bikes for.

Cheers,
Wayne

The guy at Perith that Penrith, Micheal Kelly I use I could not recommend highly enough. He worked on my quad for several hours and only charged me a minimal fee.

The first time he meets you he asks you to bring the quad (obviously) and asks that you leave enough time to go over the quad with him. I have never seen someone more particluar. I dont think he does this to increase his income but to point out what needs to be done as he states wether it is urgent or can wait.

I personally will not allow anyone else to service my quad and have recommended several people know who have come back with the same recommendation.

I was a little hesitant at first going to someone who works from home, but once there I new I was dealing with a professional that GUARENTEES his work.

The only problem I have found with him is that he doesnt work on 4wds lol.....

And thanks to all who replied.

G'day Brad,
Do you know a current number that I can contact him on? His mobile is always "out of range", and his home phone keeps giving a fax tone. Are you also able to confirm that his address is still the same? Any help would be great.

G'Day Brad,
Thanks very much for all your help and your offer to call arround there. I actually live in Camden but I did drive over to the Penrith address last Wednesday, no one was home. You may be right about him being on holidays.
Anyway .... I "bit the bullet" and bought a new one. I've never had much luck with second hand stuff anyway, usually ended up with someone else's problems. I bought a Honda TRX350TE, a very nice unit. I figured that I will be keeping it for quite some time and that I would get enough use out of it on the mates farm as well as a few trips away.
Thanks again,
Regards,
Bazza.
