This husband and wife team together couldn't fix a PB&J if you gave them the bread, jelly and peanut butter. No joke! I brought my bike to them for a clutch replacement and not only did they lie to me about a "high performance" clutch that didn't exist, they also lost my bike's registration, left my garage kept bike out in the rain and I had to call the cops on them to get them to pay for my registration replacement. They also kept telling me they'd have it done by a certain time and never got it done after having it for over a month. This place should be closed down. Probably the stupidest people I have ever met!!

Brought my bike in with a no start, no spark condition.

They replaced an inexpensive ignition pickup coil and charged me over dealer list price (>$400) for a used igniter unit ("black box") that was not defective. I know because I popped it off and had a dealer test it with their Digital Ignition Checker prior to taking my bike into their shop. They either damaged the igniter unit in the shop or never actually replaced it.

The work they did do was careless,: they failed to reinstall the breather tube on the air filter housing and lost one of the original bolts that secure the fuel tank. Worst of all, they fried my new battery, a high quality sealed unit from Yuasa, by cranking the starter incessantly, which, in turn, fried my voltage regulator, and left me stranded.

Never Again! I'll find the time to do my own work.

Took my scooter in today to get the new tires that I purchased elsewhere mounted. It took about 3 hours but they seemed to do a good job. They quoted a price over the phone and that's what I paid even though I had them install a new set of

South Philly Cycle is an family owned business and they know motorcycles . They dont pretend to know. \n\nI have been to many mechanics that just want to BS you . Arnie (the mechanic and owner), and his family are probably honest to a fault . If you need something fixed and it takes time he will tell you .\n\n This is the best place to have a motorcycle fixed Hands Down! Especially if you are trusting your life or a loved ones to it . \n\n

Well, the issue here, other than being an unproffesional, unappealing business, is that they are have a problem with telling the truth. I made an appointment for some work on a Saturday and when I got there, I was told that I made a mistake because I was supposed to call the day before and reconfirm (which wasn't true). I asked them to order a battery, which they were certain it would be in by no later than 2-3 days. On the fourth day I asked where the battery was. I had the impression that they didn't order the battery. Rather than tell me that they forgot to place the order (forgiveable offence), they told me it would take another 2-3 days. When I asked how much the battery was that they ordered, they starting digging through order books to try to find a price.\r\n\r\nThe bottom line is that if I can't trust what they are telling me or doing, then why would I give them my bike with a key. Very unproffesional, no parts stock, no confidence in their ability. I suggest try somewhere else.

I will continue to use South Philly Cycles for as long as I own a motorcycle. I brought them a 1972 Honda CB 350 that had been sitting for over 30 years and they were able to get the bike back up and running! They were very professional, friendly, and performed quality work at very fair price.\r\n\r\nI was in need of a replacement gas tank and they managed to find a replacement and match the color so that I didnt have to repaint the bike! They added a bunch of extra parts, explained in detail what they had done and didnt charge me a penny more than what they explained to me. \r\n\r\nThese guys are great! I wish more companies operated like this one. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND THEM!!

these guys have done quite a bit of work on my bikes so far. \r\nReplaced an engine on my suzuki gs500. (i blew it up and came to them looking for an alternative to the dealer) got a very good deal on the job. \r\nthey've also replaced many of my tires, done many oil changes (i've got nowhere to do it myself) and lots of other routine maintenance.\r\n \r\nMy buddy's bike is in their shop every few weeks (daily ridden 1995 kawi) and they always fix whatever problem it's having\r\n\r\n

Pros: friendly service, knowledgeable

Cons: always busy so plan to leave the bike or call ahead

This place is the most unprofessional repair shop EVER!!! I've said it in other reviews to ensure these people get NO business and I'll say it again. This husband and wife team couldn't fix a PB&J if you gave them the bread, jelly and peanut butter. No joke!!! Not only did they never fix my bike after having it for over a month they also lost my registration and left my garage kept bike out in the rain. They also lied to me saying they were ordering me a ""high performance"" clutch that doesn't exist and I had to threaten them by calling the cops in order to have them pay for my lost registration. Stupid, stupid, stupid!!!!! I wouldn't bring a pedal bike to these two morons!

With years of experience on most makes and models of both carburated and fuel injected motorcycles, we can hunt down the cause of many common (and not-so-common) problems with your motorcycle.
Maintenance
