Washington Quality engine / machine shop near Seattle area?

Recommended Posts

I'm working on my wife's CRF230 and looking for a quality shop that can bore the cylinder and port the head. I also need some welding done on a 450X swingarm.

I'm in Renton, are there any quality machine shops around?

Thanks!

Mike

if your boring the cylinder, I'd stay with a MC shop..I believe The WheelMaster can do this, if not Mory knows who to call!

UM>>>welding a swingarm?? is that even a good BAD IDEA?:lol:

Allied Technical services in georgetown might be worth calling about the swingarm. They are used to working on critical stuff & do tig aircraft welding. Nice guys, too.

Thanks for the replies! I'll give them both a call - the WheelMaster site also lists swingarm welding as one of their services.

My swingarm isn't broken, I'm working on a project bike - I'm starting with a CRF230 with a big bore and putting 250X wheels, brakes, and suspension on it. I already have a 450X but I also want a simple air-cooled, low-maintenance bike with good suspension. For the swingarm I'm trying to decide if I want to modify the 230 swingarm to accept the rear disk hanger, or modify a 250/450X swingarm to fit the 230 frame.

This project probably doesn't make sense to most people, but it's something fun to work on.

Sounds cool :lol: Before I was into riding I was into jeeps and rock crawlers. Most of the rigs you see out there are hand built and modified by their owners, don't see that much in the bike world.
