Brought up from a humble military family with Italian ancestry I became interested in all things motorcycle, automobile & truck during my pre-teen / teenage years. Upon graduation from High School I enlisted in the USCG in 1985 & served a four year enlistment through 1989. In April of 1987 I graduated at the top of my "A" school class and was promoted "MK3", Machinery Technician 3rd class. Upon discharge I received my CDL class "A" drivers license and became a truck driver. For the next 20 years I transported goods around the USA. I made some valuable connections with some great people involved in the antique motorcycle world. All the while investing time into the preservation of collectible classic Harley-DavidsonTM motorcycles, ChevroletTM automobiles, and other various memorabilia related to transportation.
We have dedicated ourselves to the restoration & preservation of the domestic Aermacchi Harley-DavidsonTM line first introduced in 1961, through its takeover by CagivaTM in 1978. Its what we do. We are the only full service shop in the country maintaining these bikes full time. We have done engine rebuilds & full restorations for private collectors, Harley-DavidsonTM dealers & museums.
We travel & attend most AMCA meets East of the Mississippi. We can meet you at the meet, discuss the scope of the work required or requested & transport your bike back to our shop at no extra cost.
We have a low overhead. We have an affordable labor rate. We understand that this is a hobby. We give you the best value on your investment. We treat your bike as if it was our own. We treat you the way we want to be treated.
We have restored family heirlooms, barn finds, original paint bikes, bikes in boxes, & basket cases. We give you our best opinion on which direction to take. Be it strictly a mechanical restoration, a full restoration, or find a better example. Estimates are at no cost, however we need to see what we are working with. Provide us with pictures of the bike sent via E-mail or bring the bike to our shop.
