Yup, flying. Winging their way by plane to Buenos Aires, Argentina. Another GL1000 set went to Bogota, Columbia a few weeks ago. :)

Hey Mike, took a look at your page. http://www.goldwingcarbs.com/details.html Very nice. Didn't see a turn around time. If you could, what would be a ballpark time frame from when you get a set in to when you send them back? Thanks

Hi, TNTbefree! Right now the season is slowed a little, so two weeks at most if nothing out of the ordinary pops up. Thanks for asking! And thanks for looking at the site!

Looks great Mike, and welcome back!

You wouldn't happen to sell the petcock o-rings would you? I looked on your (excellent) site but didn't see them.

Thanks,

Brendan, as a matter of fact I do. I'll mail the two o-rings to you no charge 1st Class, or PayPal me $7 for Priority cost. Part still free. Thanks for reaching out!
