BlueCat mechanic Jeff Chaffin’s custom rebuilt Yamaha took second place in a local motorcycle show. This bike has been rebuilt from the bottom up to include all the style of an old 50′s cafe racer. It’s bare recognizable as a yamaha now – but it runs like a brand new bike.
We’re getting ready for the mad dash of spring tune ups here at the shop. We’ve been working like crazy over the winter to expand our services a bit. We added 2 new stalls in our service area, and found some great new mechanics to fill them.
Bring in your bike for a quick tune up, and get the winter creaks worked out.
We believe there's nothing sweeter than an old machine running as good as, if not better, than when it rolled off the factory line. A close second is when that machine looks as good as it runs. That's why we offer comprehensive vintage motorcycle restoration services. Whether it's a concourse bike, a resto-mod custom, or even your own take on the perennial Cafe Racer, give us a call at (651) 645-1172 and we'll get the wheels rolling.
