Description

A weekend of wrenching for vintage, European & air-cooled motorcycles!

This class will include hands on, demonstration and instruction in the areas of motorcycle maintenance with an emphasis on vintage, European and air-cooled bikes. We will spend the greater part of the next two days deep in wrenching, demos, and great conversation about the nuances of maintaining a vintage motorcycle.
