    Really like the design.
    But make sure someone checks your spelling, grammar, punctuation, etc.

    My 2 cents:

    1. Remove the Home logo icon on your top menu. Make the home link to your site name "chopshop Auto & cycle salvage"

    2. Try to fit everything in 1 page without visitors to scroll down to see the rest of info.

    3. Make the dynamic banner smaller so that it won't distract visitor to view the the rest of the site

    4. Maybe you can make every tab a button ie [To The Chop Shop, Buy Online, Recent Info, To get Here]

    5. Set default view on Google map a big further so that we can see which city without hitting the '-' sign

    6. Make default link to AUTO and CYCLE, because it will not lead me to anywhere if i disable JavaScript ( I will not see the map too).

    Very nice colors and informative.

    When I saw cycle, I thought "Holy Shit, Brad is getting out of motorcycles and is now selling parts for pedal bikes". Why not list it as Motorcycle instead of cycle?

    I'm not talking about the name, I'm talking about the menu item that lists motorcycle parts not "cycle" parts, because cycling and the word cycle is more associated with bicycles instead.

    Should be able to scroll through the pics for the bikes without clicking on each one individually.

    Is this Brad's chopshop?

    I think it's gay because it mentions cars before bikes!!

    none
    all these would be my opinion*

    everything seems a bit big, especially the request form page, way too spaced out
    even on my work monitor i needa scroll. if its scrolling for more info then its alright.

    vehicle for sale page = messy, need a bit of work
    ^^ your probably still working on that tho

    home page need some work. first impression of the shop if checking by internet would be the home page. again.. messy. showing alot of information that can be found in the links given.
    News* is a good idea. but direction can be putted into the Contact page?

    good start but probably need a couple more revision to pass. of course all sites depends on the clients goal and what they are looking for, plus budget.

    hope this helps

    A quick test:

    Thought e-bay store graphic could be a hyperlink.

    Hours of operation is 9am-9pm. One might want to note the days open, a note on holidays optional?

    The word Cycle on top could be bikes?

    Excellent forum listed under "links"

    You have a direct e-mail under contacts. I don't know if that'll turn into a spam magnet or not?

    Very nice and modern.
    Not too many links that someone would get confused, nice color choices.
