We can get most old carbs to work and look like new with our Ultrasound cleaning system. It really is the best way to clean carbs and the results are amazing!
There are many ways to get a bike to be quicker, and often the ones people choose are the wrong ones. We offer advice on the best bang for your buck, as well as things like gas flowing, ignitions, carbs and weight loss.
The Limey has completed several full restorations of vintage Japanese bikes and will happily take on full ‘back to factory’ restorations to make your 40 year old bike look and perform like it was when it was new.
