I thought it might be of interest and of some help to display some of the work of a close friend and restorer who, does have time to take on new projects. Noble Butler has been restoring bikes for over twenty years. It started out as a hobby but has grown into a sideline business. Noble has a broad pool of resources for plating, polishing, painting and machine work on motors. He does most of the basic engine work himself. Turn around time on a basic restoration is
around 2-3 months depending on part availability and extent of the restoration (concours quality or race ready). I can tell you that his prices are hard to beat and the quality of his work speaks for itself.
Noble is located in Southern California and can be reached on his cell phone at (760)234-7946 or by email at: firstname.lastname@example.org
