On this website are examples of restorations I have completed since 1990 on BSA, Norton and Triumph vertical twins, a Ducati 900SS, a Ducati 250 Mark 3 Diana Speciale, and an Alfa Romeo Giulietta Spider Veloce. These vehicles have undergone a complete frame off nut and bolt restoration — stripping all components to the bare basics. All frame pieces are powder coated/painted; aluminum components are professionally polished to a chrome-like finish; and fasteners are re-plated in either cadmium, zinc, or show-chrome. Fenders, tanks, and side covers have been professionally painted with quality automotive paints, color-sanded and polished to perfection. Pinstriping or custom lettering/logo work was professionally hand-done by Mitch Kim Pinstriping. Every 'wear' item was replaced to as-new.
Detailed care and craftsmanship have gone into each and every component.
