Restorations

Current and competed motorcycle restorations.

This is a 1942 WLA military bike that we are restoring for a customer.  It is currently in progress.

It’s been a long process but Dennis O’s 1946 Indian Chief restoration was finally completed.  Dennis was thrilled and is happy to have the bike.  He has even already won some awards in some California bike shows.  Check out the older posts for the progression of this project.

 

We are restoring this for Larry.  The motor went through start-up already.  We installed the motor and transmission in the frame and are continuing the restoration process.

We are putting the final touches on Dennis’ 1946 Indian before start-up and test-ride.

This has been an on-going project but we are near the end. The bike was delivered to us in crates that had been sitting for 20 years. It has come a long way.

Here’s another update on Dennis’ 1946 Indian.  It is getting close to being complete.  Dennis should be able to start enjoying his motorcycle soon.  For the complete story of this restoration visit our archived posts.

 

We finished Mike’s 1948 Indian.  It rode like a new one and he was very happy with the job.  We had it delivered to him by Arizona Motorcycle Towing (Michelle, the owner does a great job), and he is now riding and enjoying it.

Mike sent us this brief history of the bike.

This post chronicles the complete restoration of Buddy’s 1914 Excelsior.  We began the project this past October and completed it today (December 20th, 2014).  The frame and sheet metal came to us painted by Mike V in California.  The rest was done here at HWC.
