Great work , Honest Good People.
South Philly Cycle is an family owned business and they know motorcycles . They dont pretend to know.
I 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 .
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 .
Not so good..
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.
The 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.
Excellent Quality Service, Fair Price.
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.
I 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.
These guys are great! I wish more companies operated like this one. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND THEM!!
good shop. many good experiences.
these guys have done quite a bit of work on my bikes so far.
Replaced 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.
they'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.
My buddy's bike is in their shop every few weeks (daily ridden 1995 kawi) and they always fix whatever problem it's having
Worst place ever to bring your bike!! DO NOT DO IT!!!!!. 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!
