Portland* 1st gen tranny swap help? Free PIZZA, BEER, & .....tobacco?

**********Free pizza, beer, tobacco to all who help for as long as it takes*******

Hey there, my names Colby and I live right outside SW Portland. Recently I have been having a lot of trouble with my 88ex500 transmission popping out of second gear and into neutral. I spoke with FOG and he offered the solution of a completely rebuilt transmission with new and upgraded parts that he was able to ship to me. If there are any mechanically enclined ex500 people here in Portland or surrounding areas that have done this swap or have pulled their engine before, I would love some help to make this possible so i can ride safe and not have to worry about going downhill out of gear. I'd rather learn firsthand and see what's being done then just send it to my dick head mechanic and get charged up the ass for the service, a well as meet some friendly Portlanders with 500s so we could ride together.
Anyone that think they maybe able to help please please email me at [email protected] or send me a PM so we can set up a time and day a few weeks out.

I'm right in the middle of a similar project due to a reluctant 5th gear. I'm on the wrong coast, but if you need pics or get stuck lemme know, I'll help if I can.

Support your local independent bike shop.
