Can someone, give me the exact address of Anthony's garage in Santacruz / Juhu Galli. I dont know the place well, so a landmark that Googlemaps can identify will be very helpful

Hi,

Need some help. I am currently on a trip to chitkul and on the way back to Shimla got stranded as the tyre got a cut.

Had to change the tube 3 times yesterday in Rampur and Narkanda. Have put a coating and an oversized tube since 120/80/18 size is not available anywhere in the hills. This is for rear tyre of Classic 500 desert storm.

Any clue for a shop in shimla where I can get the new set?

We are 2 people on one bike and have luggage as well. Had a real rough day yesterday.

Help appreciated!

John's garage is at Mahipalpur. When you are going to Delhi from Gurgoan, once you reach the Mahipalpur fly over, take the left service road. Go under the flyover and take a U turn. On the left side you will pass Radissons hotel. Keep a good watch to your left. The garage is behind a small compound wall and can be easily missed. Pappu's number was 9811375839, not sure if it has changed now.
Hi,

I know its a long shot and this post was written in 2010, but I am curious to know whether this workshop is still running? Need to get my bike serviced over the weekend.

Update on this one:

The garage is very much still there. Got my bike serviced last weekend from there. Must say, when John arrived, there was a swagger around him! His bike is definitely a show-stopper, having done more than 3 lakh Kms.

His shop is currently sealed and he services bike in a make shift arrangement in front of the shop. Don't expect to get a lot of spares there. Also, with only one mechanic at hand, weekends are typically occupied there and you might have to wait for hours before your bike is serviced.

Hello Team,

I am looking for a CDI unit for my Machismo AVL 350. Can anyone provide me online, offline sources (in Kolkata). What is the substitute that may be used in this motorcycle in the event the OEM part is not available in the market?

Thanks & Regards.

A heads-up to people residing in Bombay, especially Andheri area. There's a shady dealer with equally incompetent and cheat so called mechanics. The shop in question is Mahavir Motorcycle House located next to Western Express Highway next to Andheri East flyover.

They are thoroughly dishonest and make a fool out of gullible customers by charging them more and giving substandard worthless products. I had been there to buy a front crash guard for my Thunderbird 500. They sold me a substandard crash guard (some shitty M-SUN brand)with a faulty C clamp. They charge ₹50 for fitting done by the most imbecile and incompetent mechanics I have ever seen or experienced.

The crash guard was having massive play and was loose even after tightening the nut. The C clamp which is connected to the chassis on top with the crash guard was bigger than it was supposed to be which made it behave like that. They tried all the tricks and jugaad to fix it by putting jugaad packing and all sorts of combination of nuts and bolts. At the end of the day after two visits and numerous attempts by those monkeys the crash guard still refused to have a snug fit. The brand in question was M-SUN which is worst of kind of aftermarket part for an RE I have ever seen.

The shop in question also has a no return/no refund policy. Which means once you buy the product from them you are stuck with it, even if the product is substandard and junk piece. It's a sacrilege to do so in today's world of customer friendly business models.

I was poorer by ₹850 today as I refused to buy their jugaad fix and endanger my life with a shitty M-SUN brand crash guard.

Buyer BEWARE!! of this shop MAHAVIR MOTORCYCLE HOUSE and it's mechanics.
