Restoration Services

If you have a vintage bike that you want restored or refurbished to as-new specifications, contact me and discuss the project with me.  It is difficult to even estimate the price without pictures and a conversation about how you want the bike done.  There are various ways to complete a project and depending upon your necessity of having NOS parts, will greatly affect the price.

You can click on the pictures on this site and see the type of work that I do.  I am not a warehouse of NOS parts and it costs me a lot to do research and trying to buy things for the bikes, so I prefer if you do that legwork.  Also, I do not have unlimited space, so it is best if you collect parts in advance.  Since I have done several of these bikes, I can complete one in relatively short order.

Here is a sample collection of the bikes that I have personally restored.  Many of the pictures will carry you to further web pages with detailed pictures of the restoration.

Examples of what I do to my own personal bikes.

  • Polished fork tubes, brake backing plates,
  • New spokes and polished rims. 
  • New paint with correct color matching.  
  • I can have any parts re-chromed as an added expense. 
  • I purchase all new nuts/bolts/washers from Honda and keep those in stock so I don’t have to spend labor hours polishing a bunch of old parts. 
  • I have spent quite a bit of time researching paint matching for the frame and engine components. 
  • If you want powder coating on the frame and small parts, I can do that as well, but it adds substantially to the cost and adds up to two weeks on the turnaround time.
  • I send the paint work out and that usually takes a 2-3 week turnaround, and sometimes have a complete body kit in stock for quicker turnaround.
