    boston area machinist

    Hey All,
    I am looking for someone who can bore/fit some new pistons in a honda 160 sloper. Does anyone know, or is anyone out there, someone who has time to do it. I have the pistons already.

    Thanks,
    Dan

    I am actually slow... who are you refering to? Frank C.? Spider? Buxton?

    Sorry to seem dense, but I have no clue what/who you are talking about.

    I've always had really good luck with Import Machine in Framingham. Dana does great work.

    Hey Dan,
    How is the Honda coming along??? You can take the set to any large boston parts store that has a machine shop and give them the specs and you should have no problem. I have used Sanel Auto parts machine shop for years and have always done a good job. $25.00 per bore is what I have been paying.

    Thanks for the input. I'm not sure exactly what I'm doing with these hondas. I am considering (if anyone was interestd) in selling or trading the superhawk. I also want to make the CB160 a reliable ride. The engine is in need of some tlc. I think I also have to check out the charging circuit etc.

    Right now I am thinking about how and where to do the work. I don't have an adequte garage space. I guess it's back to the basement for me.

    I think Hutch is probably going to disown me after tomorrow I'm stopping by in the afternoon with my buddy who's restoring his triumph...

    I sold my Bonneville! (EEK!)

    Wow... that's fucked up. You spent so much time on it. Are you having a baby or buying a home? What's the deal?
