I have been a motorcycle enthusiast since I was 12 years old. I started my working life as a Machinist in the Canadian Air Force and am a veteran. In the late 70’s and early 80’s I raced motorcycles at the amateur level with some success and as a result of contacts in racing world, changed careers and became a Motorcycle Mechanic. I have been a Licensed Motorcycle Mechanic in Ontario for more than 28 years. I have owner a large Suzuki, Yamaha, Ski-Doo dealership and spent 8 years as a Suzuki Factory Service rep.
All this experience makes me an expert in the field and because of my love of Classic Motorcycles it is my mission to help save the classics and enable their owners to ride a Classic Machine that performs and looks like new. As I have said elsewhere on this site “Classic Bikes are great to own when they work right but when they don’t, there is no joy.” As I enter my 5th year specializing in the restoration of Classic Bikes I have seen many wonderful Motorcycles resurrected in my shop that I am extremely proud of having worked on and I look forward to many more in the coming years. Check out my From the Garage Blog for some interesting posts about the work I do.
I am a physically disabled person as a result of being hit head-on by a pickup truck while testing a bike at work several years ago. As a result of that I am generally unable to work on your job on a day to day basis for longer that about 4 hours per work day. This doesn’t mean that I am slow at the work I perform but it does mean that your motorcycle will be in the shop for a longer length of time than you may have become used to at a larger shop. I am a very honest and straight forward person and it is important that you understand this so we can have an enjoyable relationship when I work on your Classic Motorcycle.
