"She is the "Femme Fatale" of the cafe racer"!  Joe is the only person I would ever have touch my motorcycle, he is an absolute artisan.

"Joe Bruton transcends the label, "mechanic", and the only close term I can apply to his talent is"craftsman".  Joe is thorough, meticulous, and brings a passion and love of motorcycles to all of his projects. If you are looking for cut rate work, go somewhere else.  You will NOT be sorry you chose him."

-Greg Calhoun

Thank you Joe for restoring my 1969 Honda Z50 to brand new condition.  I was truely amazed at the detail work you put into my bike.  I remember what this bike looked like new on the showroom floor and the polishing that you did on my handle bars and brake drums makes this bike look better than it did when it was brand new.  Mexican Yellow was always my favorite color and it was so rare that I never believed I would actually own one.

Joe Bruton has worked on my motorcycles for a decade and I have been
proud to call him “friend” for longer than that. I own several
bikes ('85 Yamaha VMax, '96 Ducati Monster and '02 KTM 400 EXC) and I
would not have purchased any of them if Joe was not available to work on
them from time to time. I won’t belabor the point about the scarcity
of talented people with integrity who work on motorcycles. If you are
reading this, you know what I mean. Joe is a rare find for several
reasons- he has a passion for excellence in whatever he does, but has a
particular zeal for motorcycles (they are in his DNA). He is a skilled
craftsman who researches the archives for information not readily
available and knows how to fabricate rare or unavailable parts. His work
ethic, background and experience result in finished products with his
unique signature on them: works of art worthy of any museum, safe and
fun to ride and often better than the day they left the factory. From
vintage restorations to go-fast machines, if you are looking for
commitment to excellence, attention to detail and unique solutions, you
may stop looking: your search is over.

Michael Eanes 1971 YAMAHA AT-1 belong to his dad who bought it new in 1971. Michael rescued this bike from being sold and held onto the bike for years.  In a huge stroke of luck Michael found a complete set of correct color tank, fenders and headlight parts already painted and ready to bolt on. Joe had this bike running in hours even though it was in storage for 15 years. Watch for the finished photos soon.
