Ok so you just need to clean things up. I would offer to do it for you but I won't have the tooling to do such tiny valves. Do you know off hand the valve size?

I'm not sure if any of these guys will have the capability to work on small heads but are the best shops in Houston.

LME (Late Model Engines)
Houston Engine and Balance
Scoggins

Upchurch and Cambora (I think) do engine work in the CMRA if you want to go that route with some great folks.

I can also ask some friends of mine that do Harley Heads on the side when their not traveling racing.

29mm exhaust 1.142"
36mm intake 1.417"

yeah pretty much needs to be cleaned up and I know the valve seats need to be cut. Im not even sure if it is salvageable.

I talked to scroggins the other day, and they said they would look at it, but were not sure if they could do it.

That's not that small. Not out of the relm of a regular engine shop pulling it off. They may need to order a cutter if they don't do individual cuts.

Do you think the head is warped or did the piston smack the head or something?

Not sure don't have too much history on the bike. There is no visual damage on the head I can see, but the valves were rusted and one of them was stuck open so im sure there was a lot of moisture in there.

Hopefully you can get away with just lapping the valves and bumping a hone through the guides.

Do not lap titanium valves. They have a nitride coating that you'll cut off exposing the soft base titanium material.

EBR Performance does head work. They are reasonably priced and get the work done fast as long as a racer doesn't need work done fast and jumps in line. They rebuilt the top end on my Husky, inspected and cleaned the head, rebuilt the crank, and replaced all bearings, seals, cam chain, and some other bits for less than $500 for labor. Only took about two weeks. They would have had it done in a few days but ran into a parts availability problem.

EBR or Rage will both do a good job at rebuilding that head for you.
