Prepping a fuel tank for paint

We’ve been doing this for a very long time, which means we’ve learned from our mistakes over the years. As we value our customers’ safety, we can’t stress this point enough… DO NOT TRY THIS YOURSELF. EVER. We don’t use tank sealer on our tanks. It’s only a temporary solution, as it fails, cracks, and […]

’68 Triumph TR6R – Part IV

Our 1968 Triumph TR6R project is moving along nicely. As you can see in the photos below, our black parts, including the frame itself, have returned from powder coating, and they look fantastic.  There’s nothing quite like seeing these parts born again in deep glossy black with not one scratch or greasy mark anywhere.  Our […]

But we do have a real mean looking tarantula in the shop if you’re into that […]

Girls like British bikes, too!

Marissa brought her 1967 BSA Starfire B25 to Don Hutchinson Cycle so the team could bring the bike back to life. As she tells the story… “The bike was found abandoned and tied to a tree in an apartment complex some 25 years ago. The owner of the complex was going to trash the bike just […]
