There’s nothing like the smile on an owner’s face when he sees his restored motorcycle for the first time. Sonoma Classic Motorbikes prides itself in making sure that each owner is thrilled with the results of our restoration and taken back to a time when it was first on the showroom floor or seen cruising down the street. The beauty of a great restoration is in the detail with each part and pinstripe designed to be as close to the original spec as possible. With your bike in the hands of SCM, you can be sure that every stage of every project is engineered to meet the highest standards of excellence and originality.
SCM’s restorations are much more than a polish and paint job, but a mechanically sound, reliable motorcycle you can enjoy for years to come. Restoration includes not only the parts that can be seen; the frame, trim, chrome, wheels, speedometer and tachometer, but also the engine, brakes, cooling system, electrical wiring, and fluid systems. Our restorations leave no nut or bolt untouched, no painted surface unpolished, no wiring untested, and no part goes without inspection.
