    Default Outstanding service, Boutique de la 404

    Time to give credit where credit is due.

    I want to tell you about the outstanding service I have received from Gilles, at Boutique de la 404 , France. They offer a range of genuine NOS stock plus after market bits and pieces for 404, 504 and I think 505's.

    Website address is, boutique-de-la-404.com
    It has an English translation section which helps.

    I've never had problem with the non-genuine items from them.

    Over the last couple of years, I have bought a number of parts from him for the restoration of my 404. But the the service I received last Friday was amazing.

    I was looking for .3 oversize bearings (Big end and Mains), Crank thrust washers, Plugs for the crank and Two new rocker shafts, plus... I needed these bits urgently, as my machinist/engineer goes on holidays next week.

    Like most people, I left ordering bits to the last minute,poor planning on my behalf.

    Anyhow, during the course of many emails, I asked Gilles if he spoke English and could I ring him. He doesn't speak English, but he arranged for me to ring at certain time and he had one of his employees who speaks English to help me with my queries.

    This is the clanger, I ordered the parts at 8:30PM last Friday (I did pay for a priority service, 66 Euro's/$100 AUD), they arrived at my door at 12:30 today.

    Sorry for be being a bit long winded, but I was just so impressed.
