new to forum

Greetings All

Im looking for information on local groups that meet in the Houston area. I am passionate about all things involving vintage motorcycles, automobiles and aircraft. My current project is the 1976 RD400C. I have a pair of them. If there is anyone in the Houston area that knows of a good shop (preferable inside the 610 loop) that will work bikes of that age, I would greatly appreciate any information.

Thanks

1960 is not to far. Is Motorcycles Unlimited set up for doing modifications? My bikes are stock and i do want to do some changes and upgrades. Here's a little history on the bikes. Im the second owner of both the bikes. A close family friend bought them new in 1976. One for him and one for the wife. Well after 5000 miles that was it, he put them in the corner and put a tarp over them for 30 years. Now its time to bring them back to life. They look like they just rolled out of the dealership, only they dont run!

We can do pretty much anything you need. We've restored everything from old BSA's to RD's, no problem.
I'm on vacation till next week but you can always call the shop and ask for Luke.
