Heritage Honda revamps cruisers with comprehensive auto services performed by vehicular specialists. Under the oil-coated stethoscopes of Honda-certified technicians, horseless carriages are carefully inspected to make sure fluids are high, parts aren't worn out, and engine cylinders haven’t morphed into cubes. An oil-and-filter change pairs well with a front-end alignment ($100) or a tire rotation and new cabin air filter ($100). Replace batteries ($100) or front brake pads worn down from too many trips around Dead Man’s Curves, the draining men-only fitness club ($100). A convenient online scheduling form affords appointments for speedy express service or more intensive maintenance work.
