i am a mechanically challanged person, but i bought my first bike with a bad trans, (had a parts motor) a few years ago for christmas, took it off the truck and rode it down the street. put it in the garage and tore it down. split the cases and swapped out the trans and forks.
so if i can do it a retarded monkey hopped up boogar suger could do it.

but what problem are you having with it?

vintage cycle is the place to go. He knows his stuff and if he can't help he will know who can.

Not sure what help you are looking for with the trans but I am in Des Moines and have a spare engine. Top end is frozen but you can have it if it will help you out.
