Can anyone here give a reccommendation for a shop to do a motor rebuild for me? Not exactly a cafe racer, but a 50cc pushrod Honda motor from the mid 60's. It is pretty noisy, with a knocky sound. Runs ok but smokes. I had a local shop take a look, but they didn't want to get into the rebuild.

Sort of true, except maybe simpler. The problem is finding the right parts. If you can do that, the motor is pretty easy, you'll just need a socket for the oil filter nut.
Wait, pushrod? I don't know about that engine.
Disregard this post...

Rosko,

I would like to buy a complete good running engine, but I think you have a c110 with the regular clutc. Mine is the 3 speed auto clutch. If yours is the auto, I would be interested in anything you may have.

In my collection are 4 motors, but all have the kickstarter shaft broken off.

I would like to have one bike ready as a spare for the giro, in one the electrics are good but engine knocks, other runs great but there is a short somewhere that blows fuses--probably just a matter of tracking down a bear wire. Maybe I will make one out of two for the event.

jack, this is pete. remember, the guy in the motorcycle shop down the road from you? these engines are so easy to rebuild that it is like a lawnmower. have some confidence in yourself, man!
the only problem is that parts are going to be a bitch.
