Best bike shop in town... well outta town

Cycle Icons, a cool little bike shop in Jersey. Run by a great guy named Leon, who I first visited in the spring or '09. I was looking for a Enfeild Bullet and found this great little shop that was an antique store as well. On my first visit it was a quiet Saturday, I had rented a Zip Car and traveled down to see Leon and see his fine inventory of RE bikes. I ended up receiving great insight and honest anti sales pitch that basically made me want to put a deposit on the bike then and there. I had a blast after Leon delivered it and promptly put on 1K on the speedo over the sumer shooting up the Saw Mill and exploring the upper Hudson. This fall I was riding up Central Park west on what was going to be a nice little short ride and lost my clutch. Turned out to be a little clutch linkage that sheared off, but left me stuck none the less. I called Leon, explained what happened and we arranged to have him pick up the bike. So now the bike is going to the shop... hmm what else can we do? Re-jet for velocity stack, new bars, bullet traficators, beehive taillight, remove the PAV and plug it, full maintenance, bar end mirrors, replace kick start clutch prowl, relocate battery and go gel cell, and now the day he is about to deliver it I want new bars, so he says he is going to order two, just so I can take my pick. This service does not exist any more. "Purveyors of Fine Vintage Motorcycles" indeed.
