Looking for a rebuilder

#1

Post by Ripley/Fla » Sun Dec 30, 2007 4:13 am

I am currently disassembling my 56 Pan. The local Harley dealer does not even have a machine shop! What a joke. I have been clued in to Head Hog for cylinder head work. Does anyone know a competent rebuilder. I live down by the Everglades so the Southeast is preferred, but I will send it anywhere in the USA. Thanks for your input.

Keith Smith the owner of Madison Motorcycle in central Virginia is very honest, has a good deal of experience, and won't rip you off. http://madcycle.biz/

Fixman, I caught Keith at his shop today and he is going to E-mail info. He says you have a nice bike! Thanks!

He better say it is nice because if it isn't it is his fault. :P I have watched Keith work for the last few years, and he always does the very best that he can. He is a gifted engine man with years of hands on experience, and all the significant certificates from the H-D schools. He loves the old bikes and tolerates the new stuff. I think you will be happy with his work.
