Welcome to JV Cycles

Japanese Vintage Motorcycle Restoration Specialists

 


 

JVCycles is a hobby...  Everyone should have a passion, and mine is restoring vintage 70's Japanese motorcycles.  The bikes I rode growing up.  Maybe one day it will be a full time business, but for now it's a spare time hobby.  As time permits, I offers 3 basic restorations, Stage 1, 2 and 3. 

Stage 1 Clean, Shine and Repair.  I will thoroughly clean and polish your motorcycle without removing any of the major components like the engine, tank, exhaust, etc.  Basically, I will detail you vintage cycle and ready it for you to show off.

Stage 2Custom Restoration.  Our most popular restoration.  Cycles of this age can have a lot of corrosion and rust on the chrome and painted parts.  Rather than re-plate (chrome and zinc) these parts or buy them new, some parts might look good re-painted or powder coated.  This restoration won’t win you any Concourse motorcycle shows, but might be just fine for the weekend show and shine event.  A Stage 2 restoration, depending on the choices made, could be considered a “Better than Original” restoration.  The paint will shine more, the chrome will be show chrome, the tires will be the best available, etc…  If you’re not planning to show your restored motorcycle, this is the one for you.  You’ll have the most flexibility to make your own choices.

Stage 3 - Cafe Racer Restoration.  This to is a "custom restoration" but will not retain the original looks of the cycle.  The sky is the limit when determining what modifications to perform.  Inspired by the Ton Up Boys of London in the 60s these predecessors to today's modern sports bikes and streetfighters, the cafe racer is a motorcycling icon.  As you can see in the picture on the left cafe racers are very unique and can be modified to your personality and style yet retain that vintage look.

Stage 4Concourse Restoration.  The goal of this high end restoration is to return your motorcycle to its original condition, not better.  This restoration will yield the most value from your investment.  Be prepared to spend a significant amount of money.  This one is expensive.  As an example, a Stage 3 restoration can be $10,000 - $15,000 for parts and platings alone, not including the original purchase price.  However, the right bike could bring between $15,000 and $25,000 when sold.

As is the case with all of my restorations, I give you the options and you make the decisions.  It’s a very interactive process. 

Please feel free to learn from my projects.  If you would like me to restore your future ride, drop me an email at JVCycles.info@gmail.com with a couple pictures of your pride and joy and I’ll let you know how I can help. 

Thanks for stopping by!
