I waited 'bout 6-7 wks for my parts. I e-mailed him a few times 1st, than forgot 'bout it & they showed up & fit great. I even changed my mind from flat black to gloss black a few days later. I just ordered TCE's bbk for the rear & asked if he has the bracket's, hat's & a set of drilled rotors. Just ask= 1 in stock 2 how long to get w/ in from what to what dates. & I ask what he's working on too.

Now what most people dont realize is that I outsource all my products for powdercoat. I have a local shop that does very nice work. The turnaround time varies depending on how busy they are, and/or what colors they are doing. It is not an easy task to change the color in the powdercoat gun for 1 or 2 parts and then change it again to another color. It would not be very efficient or profitable either. You also cannot cure multiple colors in the oven at the same time, or else you risk contamination in the powdercoat

With that said, depending on what is getting coated at the time, and what color you decide, it can be finished in 1 or 2 days or sometimes almost two weeks or more if the shop is busy. All of my parts are custom, made to order, and that takes time. I like to offer that option, because most people want something different, and not the same as everyone else.

I am also overwhelmed with orders and have been operating with a 2-3 week waiting list. That means, depending on your order, it may take 2-3 weeks before your parts will be fabricated and sent out to powdercoat. I am a one-man operation and I handle every step of the process myself. From ordering the raw materials, to cutting, machining, cleaning, welding and checking every item before it gets powdercoated. Then the items get assembled, cleaned, packed and shipped to you. I prefer to handle every step to assure every item is 100% before it leaves my hands. When you receive your order, I hope you enjoy everything as much as I do during the fabrication process.

-Dominic Biro
I think there is a wealth of good advice and information here.

People buy his parts b/c of the specialized fitment and quality. If you want parts from him, you have to wait. It is what it is.

I have ordered quite a few things from him and have never had any problems.

Whenever I email him, it never takes more than a day to get a response.

With that said, I emailed him this Monday and have yet to hear from him.

I understand he is extremely busy with Fab Work/Riding so I really don't take it to heart if I don't hear from him for a couple of days. The work he does is one of a kind and well worth every penny.

It sounds like he needs to start hiring some help if he wants to stay in the Fabrication Business. He can do all the fab work but needs people to do some Public Relations and take care of his customers.

Because he has nothing to do except sit and wait for your emails. I have his number and sometimes it tales a few days for him to get back to me. Difference is I know what he has going on you don't. But I've also tried to go semi-pro in sports and understand how much commitment it takes to do it. Personally I wish he would quit fabrication and focus on his riding. If all he does is sit around and wait for emails then he shoud have about 12 from me alone with no answer from anyone of them in over two mounth. Plus he said that it would be mailed out that week two months ago so what does that tell U!!!

Hope your 12 emails are not like that.

FIXED!

Just when I thought a double post was bad... a Triple Post shows up.

03cdsilversvtf, I believe jinstall was being sarcastic about Dom sitting around and waiting for emails.

Dom is super busy, but I completely agree he needs to make an attempt to maintain contact with his customers, especially ones who have paid money and still don't have their stuff.

I've done all I'm going to do. He does not pay me to run his business and no one had paid me to work for their interests.
