Seasonal Maintenance 

Get your bike ready for summer riding or winter storage. Fresh fluids will keep cases clean and healthy.  We only use the highest quality lubricants. 

Carb adjustment, points and timing and some new spark plugs will make your bike easy to start and give it a smooth idle. If your carbs leak after you shut the bike down, maybe it's time for new floats and needle valves?  Is your bike hard to start warm?  Maybe your coil is heading south?  Does your bike have the shakes/wobble?  We'll find the fault and restore your steady steed to 100%.  Do you live in a part of the country where you store your bike in winter?  If so, consider sending or shipping your bike to us for major maintenance, such as slinger cleaning. Fly in to San Jose SJC, San Francisco SFO, or Oakland or Sacramento and ride the world famous local roads up to Alice's Restaurant, the Sierras or just hang out at the Workshop at our Air BnB cottage or camp on our lawns! 

Service recommendations

Not sure what your bike needs?  We'll examine it and document our recommendations in priority/safety order.  That way you can take get an idea of what is needed so you can handle the important stuff and maybe save the rest for a rainy day.

Buying a bike?  We provide comprehensive pre-purchase inspections anywhere in the Bay Area.

Full or partial restorations

Whether we're doing a small job or a big one on your bike, we will strive for perfection.  We will discuss the scope of your project and get a clear vision of what you want.  Some owners like to do it all at once. Some like to break up the work into phases.  Have it your way. 

We also offer cosmetic restorations featuring frame and body work painting and pinstriping, sealing and blasting aluminum cases and new OEM hardware (where available) or stainless hardware upgrades. More info on restoration services.
