After paying Sam an additional $140 over the estimate and picking up my engine I noticed the push rod tube upper O rings where not installed properly. When I attempted to get him to look at the motor he became very hostile and belligerent. He positioned himself so as to block me from leaving his shop and got right into my face in a very threatening manner, foaming at the mouth bitching and cussing calling me every name in the book. I believe this man is mentally unstable and should seek professional help before he gets himself into serious trouble. My advice "Stay Away from Sammy" and find an honest mechanic. In my opinion everything he's done to my motor is now suspect and needs a thorough inspection since he can't even get the O rings right. UPDATE: After removing the cylinder heads I discovered the gouge in the front cylinder was still there and all he did was hone the crap out of it and put the standard pistons back in. He had charged me for an oversized Wiseco piston set....
Dont take it their save yourself the time and headaches. I wont have to do much explaining because lucky for me the Owner SAM BAUGES made himself an even bigger fool infront of both me and the police. He had the bike for over THREE months and I gave him plenty of opportunities to keep his end of the bargain which was fixing my bike. He couldnt even do that and eventually he disrespected me and my husband. My bike is in worse condition now then when I took it in. Do you know what three months of waiting got me?? NOTHING my bike is in pieces. Dont waste your time Dawn (the wife) and SAM or just rude people who could careless about their customers. If this is not proof enough of the true person the owner SAM is then I dont know how much more proof you would need. http://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PL617A525F823BE423&feature=plcp
This Sam Bruges is is a lying,unethical,arrogant, unperforming,money stealing,scam scum,that works with likes of the devil.it takes about 2 seconds to figure that out. I ripped off 1600$ ,bike stolen but then found at other shop,a physical assault on me that hurt me so bad to miss 3 days of work court hearings.i only got restitution for assault ,he went to jail. My bike was worse off. See he puts the business license in other sucker friends so he's not lia ble for anything either is the other person who has the license. Yeh that the system that he's figured out. Just keep on ripping you off. With no recallHe laughs at you like your the idiot that prepaid me . What you can't afford parts,what time do you actually work. I can't believe Canfield brakes across the street that's his landlord, still rent to this wanna be reputable bike shop. There are to many shops out there that are honest good and want to perform for your business to even give this guy 1 penny. For years now I've been taking my motor toys to the Bike Doctor in elchon just 1 good honest man who fear forms and likes my business..
Sam Baugues has always been a "Con-Artist" every since he was young. Every since he was a teenager, Sam has been beating people up who disagree with him, he has always stolen and been a thief. Every friend he had he had burned his bridges and people were always afraid of him. Don't trust him
The owner seems to mean well, but definitely has a customer service issue. My bike was in his possession for over 3 weeks with a simple charging issue. I payed full price for my parts maybe even over priced (at least MSRP) 497.00 for stator and Regulator. Which I eventually found for 100.00 less online afterwards. I feel, if i'm paying full price I should have great service. I felt disrespected and disreguarded. I didn't feel welcomed, and didn't feel a sense of earned trust. That's a 650.00 lesson I guess.
