    Only because most people's Rolleiflexes have more issues. He'll do just the CLA if that's all you want. Personally for me I took him up on all issues he found on one of mine, including a rusty film feeler, cracked strap holder and bent foot that another Rolleiflex tech missed a couple years back.

    Brian, here's two repair estimates I got from Harry last March for my 2.8E and 3.5E Planars. I had him complete both and they are a dream to use now. The 2.8E was a real beater I bought from a small shop in a Beijing alley and it was a real mess and as can be seen needed a lot of work (I got it real cheap!). I had another person do a simple and "reasonably priced" CLA on it a few years back. It helped but later the hood fell apart and more issues arose as can be seen there was way more issues. The 3.5E was in good shape. I bought it from Randy of Holgamods a few years ago. The pin of the film advance crank fell out and got lost. And as can be seen I had Harry install a new Maxwell screen so that added $199 to that estimate:

    Received: Rolleiflex 2.8E w/case.

    Defects on receipt: hood parts loose, focus knob & front panel & lens mount have paint damage, scratches front & rear surfaces taking lens, film feeler roller rusted, release lock & sync lock levers are missing, front tilted & out of alignment, back bent.

    Service required: repair hood $49.00, shutter overhaul $134.00, transport overhaul (stiff) $134.00, straighten back $24.00, replace release lock & sync lock levers $39.00, replace back lock pin $22.00, replace rusted film feeler roller $29.00, repair focusing, re-align, collimate & adjust focus $110.00, repair depth of field scale (sluggish) $49.00, replace missing & damaged leather $29.00, CA tax on parts $8.63, UPS shipping $27.00, total is $654.63 invoice #20106.


    Received: Rolleiflex 3.5E with no accessories.

    Defects on receipt: front foot bent, dent on top of hood strapholder- back latch damaged.

    Service required: straighten bent foot $16.00, shutter overhaul $134.00, transport overhaul $134.00, secure tripod mount plate $16.00, install Maxwell #1 screen $199.00 + $10.00 labor, replace strapholder $39.00, CA tax on parts $17.26, UPS shipping $27.00, total is $592.26 invoice #20107.

    My father was never rich enough to buy a Rolleiflex back in the 1950's but he did spring for a Rolleicord. I had Harry bring that back to life after it sat idle in the house in Florida for about 35 years without a single roll in it. Harry did a great job. Long time to wait but this camera from my father works really well now.

    The last time I had my Rollei overhauled (someone else, not Fleenor) I was quoted the lens CLA and abody CLA/minor repairs seprately. Once I needed both done; a decade later I needed just lens CLA. I seem to recall (and this was a couple of decades ago) the price being about $125 each. The person I went to didn't add on cost for minor repairs like tightening tripod mount, whcih was about the only body repair I ever needed.

    Others I've sent my Rolleiflexes to in the past never found (even looked?) for such things.

    Yes.. Obviously the price is based on the severity of repair work. The camera I have was in very good condition cosmedically. I got lucky. I expressed to him to to give a once over and to go ahead and do whats needed to get back to factory specs as much as possible.
