How many hours would dealer charge?

I recently helped out a good friend and brand new Goldwing owner by cleaning and assembling his carbs, installing them, and then of course synching. I also installed new strut seals etc. which were leaking.

He bought the bike for a song, it's an '84 Aspencade. When we went and picked it up the bike wouldn't run. Owner said it hadn't been able to run for 4 years. We brought it to my house and I found all 4 carb slides were stuck in place. And I do mean immobile. I removed the carbs, disassembled and cleaned, and then reinstalled. The Aspy runs like a dream now. I wrote about this on the forum a few months ago.

Last night we were having a beer or two over here and he wanted to know how much a Honda dealer would have charged for the work we (I) did. I told him I have no idea as I've never dealt with a dealer before. What's a rough estimate from you guys about how many hours they would charge and approximate cost to accomplish what we did?

Thanks in advance,
DC

DC: Shop time in South Dakota is running $80.00 USD per hour. They start the time when the first nut is turned. The "Book" gives them an amount of time the work should take and that is usually their minimum...plus parts. How long did it take you?
