Motor and Trans Rebuild

#1

Post by Rider65 » Sun Nov 02, 2008 2:29 pm

I have a 65 that I put together in 1973. I'm looking for someplace near norhtern New Jersey that can do a complete rebuild. Thanks for any help.

Rosa's Cycle Shop in Huntington NY has always had a good rep. I have a 69 Shovel that they did the top end on and would consider the workmanship top notch, but that was quite a few years ago, so do some current research.

Dave, Thanks for the lead. I checked out there web site and will consider them. I have to go out there and pick brains and make eye contact. The selection process is important to me. My old Pan has been with me longer then my last two wives. I wish I had the time space and knowledge to do this myself.
Thanks again.

They (Rosas's) were into drag racing Shovels big time for quite awhile, maybe still do. So their street engines should hold together well. You are doing the right thing by checking it out personally. It would be hard to take that leap of faith, that's why I do my own rebuilds now.
