I restored my first Harley Davidson lightweight almost 20 years ago. A 1948 125 that I took to a local show and won "best of show". That was the beginning of my now full time job of building and restoring these wonderful bikes.
Theres something about taking a pile of what looks like junk to some folks and turning it into a thing of beauty.
In the last ten years (full time) that I have been restoring parts and bikes I have worked with the greatest people that share the same Passion for these bikes.
