Cleaner than a new case

All rebuilds are carried out in a dust free enviroment to a very high standard. At this stage the unit is fully assembled to allow the working tolerances to be set up correctly.

1955 Norton Dominator

This 1955 Norton Dominator was rescued from the living room of an old gentleman were it had been completely dismantled and left in a box for 25 years. The Norton is now back on the road where it runs and looks as good as it did when it was a new machine.

1960 Triumph T110

This Triumph 1960 T110 is another machine that had been dismantled and stored for many years. The head and barrels had been removed and the crankshaft and main bearings were covered in rust. The crankshaft was so bad that I had to put it in the gritblaster to remove all the rust from the flywheel. This machine is also back on the road and resembles a new machine.
