Classic British Spares has always been known as a "parts supplier", however many folks don't know that we actually do machine work and production work in house for classic British motorcycles 

Now granted our main focus is parts sales, however, we will start offering some small jobs that revolve around common issues that our customers face during a rebuild or restoration  

In this section you will find all of our services that we are currently offering. Please feel free to browse through the info below..

 The cost is $300 each hole - you will get the following service performed on your cylinder head
