Welcome to my website.
These pages represent some of the restorations I have completed on Norton and Triumph vertical twins, a Ducati 900SS & an Alfa Romeo Giulietta Spider Veloce. My process involves a complete frame-off nut and bolt restoration — stripping all components to the bare basics. All frame pieces are powder-coated; aluminum components are professionally
polished to a chrome-like finish; & fasteners are re-plated in either cadmium, zinc, or show chrome.
Fenders, tanks, & side covers are professionally painted with quality automotive paints, color-
sanded & polished to perfection. Pinstriping or custom lettering/logo work is professionally
hand-done by Mitch Kim Pinstriping. Every wear item is replaced as new. Detailed
care& craftsmanship have gone into each & every component.
PLEASE NOTE: I am not a walk-in business.
I do not have a store front and I do not sell parts or do repairs.
Please don't use these images on web sites, blogs, or other media without my explicit permission.
