    Can't say enough good stuff about Dave Katz and the crew at CBE. He did a miraculous job of tearing down and rebuilding this beast into what it is today. I highly recommend Dave if you need any sort of vintage euro bike work done.

    I've got a couple. The RD400 race bike was a complete nut and bolt restoration. I mean every single part on the bike. The Ducati was more of a switch this for that. But all done by yours truly.

    Some neat stuff you guys. I am working on a reconstruction myself, but it's still in the "during" stage...

    It's actually back on it's tires as of today, but not yet done.
