George E Kraus Vintage Norton & Triumph Motorcycle Restorations, Portland, Oregon
Welcome to my web site

These pages represents some of the restorations I have completed on Norton and Triumph vertical twins. My process involves a complete frame-off nut and bolt restoration — stripping all components to the bare
basics. All black frame pieces are powder-coated, all aluminum components are professionally
polished to a chrome like finish, & all fasteners are re-plated in either cadmium, zinc,
or show chrome. All fenders, tanks, & side covers are professionally painted with
quality automotive paints & color sanded & polished to perfection.
All pinstriping or custom lettering/logo work is professionally
hand-done by fellow artist Mitch Kim Pinstriping.
Every wear item has been 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.
