Engine Re-Building

We offer a rebuild service for both two & four stroke engines, ranging from single cylinder mopeds to multi cylinder superbikes. We can also offer fourstroke Moto X engine rebuilds for Moto X & Enduro competitors as well as building engines for circuit racing. Please feel free to view our engine building page for some examples of our work.

Front Fork Rebuilds

We can rebuild & reseal your leaking front forks using new seals, bushes & oiI. We can service & rebuild conventional units through to fully adjustable Upside Down units. We can also arrange for rusty & pitted fork stanchions to be rechromed.

Electrical Services

If you are considering building a special, be it a street fighter, street scrambler or bobber & find the prospect of the wiring daunting, we can help by modify your existing wiring harness or produce a custom made harness from scratch to suit your requirements. We can also carry out electrical repairs, fault finding & ignition upgrades. We have also developed a kit to upgrade AC lighting systems on classic 80's trials & enduro machines that do not run a battery to prevent overcharging & blown bulbs.

Cylinder Head Work

We offer a four stroke cylinder head overhaul service for single or multicylinder engines including valve decarbonisation, valve seat refacing/recutting & a valve clearance reshimming service. This is especially important for engines being used for racing & competition use. Low compression caused by valve problems can effect starting & cause a severe lack of performance.

We are also equipped to carry out small engineering jobs as well as thread repairs & Helicoil service.

To remain competitive, we try to keep our prices at a reasonable level & can tailor work to suit any budget & all of our work is guaranteed. Depending on the type of work required & parts availability, we try to keep lead & turnaround times to a minimum.
