After bouncing from “builder” to “builder”, Chester bumped into me through a random Kijiji ad where I was selling some old Honda parts. He told me his bike was sitting for a long time, and now it wont even start. He was luckily not too far from me, so I grabbed my tools, hopped in the car and went straight to his place. After messing around with the bike a bit I managed to get it running, but it still needed a lot of work. Chester was committed to getting his motorcycle back on the road, and eventually fully restoring the motorcycle, so he hired me to give his engine some much needed love.
The engine had to be fully built from the ground up, with new bearings, gaskets, oil seals, piston rings, honed cylinders, resurfacing, etc, etc, etc! To top it off, his engine cases we’re repainted and covers polished to make it really pop. I was extremely glad to see his reaction once he had his motorcycle back and was able to ride it around again, and we have plenty more planned to continue his restoration project
