Default shop recommendations in Westside Los Angeles

I got hit from behind as I was waiting at a red light two days ago by some woman who was not paying attention. The bike's a mess, but unless the frame is bent, it looks entirely fixable. I am hoping that her insurance will pay to have it fixed rather than totaling it. It's way beyond my capacity to fix and I don't think there's much chance they will pay me enough to get my local dealership to deal with it. Does anyone have any recommendations for a good, trustworthy shop that could fix a 1996 Sportster? I live on the edge of West Los Angeles and Santa Monica but can get it towed to anywhere within reason.

Well that had to suck. I hope you’re ok.

I don’t have suggestion, but will bump it back up.

I only would let one shop work on my bike if I could not do it myself. It’s a long haul for you but Earl Burley at Burley performance in Ridgecrest ca. Is the best sporty wrench I have ever met. He has been in the game a long time. Shop # 760 375 2603.

Any updates? Still looking for a shop. Can't get an insurance payout until a shop has written a damage estimate. Has to be in the west side of Los Angeles
