After hearing today’s COVID-19 update we at G6 are trying our best to comply with both state and federal guidelines for operating our business. While we will remain open we will be limiting our contact with the public. There will be ABSOLUTELY no drop offs without an appointment. Again, ABSOLUTELY no drop offs without an appointment. If you choose to leave a bike outside after hours it will be towed away and impounded at your expense.
Please call for an appointment and we will be more than happy to schedule your bike for it’s service or repair needs.
Thank you to all our customers for their continued patronage and for all the referrals!
We added a tachometer to this splendid Thunderbolt. Found a rebuilt Smith’s tach on Ebay that someone had ordered for a Triumph only to find it would not fit. After installation, the tach locked up and twisted off the drive mechanism and tore the new cable on the test ride, in less than four miles!! Turns out that when the tach was rebuilt some eighteen years ago, they neglected to grease the new parts, or the old parts…. I suppose you win some and lose some. After finally getting everything operating correctly and mounted, I rode the bike some 35 miles to deliver it to my friend/customer. It performed flawlessly and was such a beautiful day to be out on Virginia’s byways!!
Getting close to completion, this all original Honda CB500 is putting up quite the struggle to remain in a stagnant state. Tires, brakes, exhaust, electronic ignition, valve service, carbs cleaned and fuel tank sealed has made it run beautifully, sometimes. Number four carb has too much damage to repair and a replacement is on the way…
