We are an independent bike shop based in Metheringham just outside Lincoln but our customers come from all over the country. If you need something doing, give us a call and we'll try and help. Whether it's OE repairs, motor work or something custom. We even sell complete bikes.

We are everyday regular riders. Our own bikes range from the 'teens' to the 2000's but most of our miles are done on knuckles and pans. Experience includes 10+ years working for the 'motor co' as well as time spent in major US custom shops and all our work is guaranteed.

Cylinder head parts breakdown (rear)

These motors may be old but they weren't just thrown together. A lot of thought went into this design. Remember, although this isn't a first year knuckle, these were the first overhead valve motors that the company produced (I know, I know, but they were the first for mass consumption).

The only major change when the panhead arrived in 48 was the method they used to stop the oil leakage around the valves and springs. The pan covers may be more effective but those knuckles sure are pretty.
