About Us

1963 Yamaha YDS3 “sandcast”

Vintage motorcycle restoration is a very complex task requiring specific knowledge of each and every part. Often the project arrives in boxes for us to sort out. We began restoring the yds/ym1 series of Yamahas about 20 years ago, and from there expanded into other 60’s era Japanese motorcycles. To date we have done about 200 restorations, many of them award winners. From complete restorations to painting or engine work we are the place to go when others turn you away.

If it’s a complete restoration you want we ask that you supply us the motorcycle you need restored. Or if you wish we can find one for you. We do not maintain a yardful of project bikes nor a showroom of motorcycles to sell. Everything is done to order. A deposit is taken and work commences. A restoration takes about 3 months. No job is really too small or too big.

Browse through the pages of our site and see if there is anything we can help you with to complete your project Yamaha, Suzuki or Kawasaki. Call anytime we are happy to answer any questions you may have. Restoration of Yamaha, Suzuki or Kawasaki is our mainstay.
