DALLAS, Texas – Auto restoration shop Linear Automotive has opened a new motorcycle division to restore vintage motorcycles.

“With all the talent in our shop it was only a matter of time before we expanded to form the motorcycle division,” said owner Joel Ozbun. “Having gifted staff members with bikes featured in contests, shows, and being featured on popular magazine covers, it made sense to share that expertise with other motorcycle enthusiasts.”

The shop specializes in total restoration service, which includes a vehicle inspection, complete repainting, polishing, upgrading, and repairing or replacing all necessary parts and components so the bike runs, sounds, and rides like new again, according to a press release.

The inspection process begins, the company said, by stripping the bike down to a bare frame so every piece can be carefully examined. The frame's structural integrity is tested and any abnormalities are addressed. The electrical system is studied to ensure every wire conducts and carries current according to specs. Anything below the standard is repaired or replaced, depending on what the situation calls for. The shop repairs or replaces vintage engines and transmissions as well as components and details.

The motorcycle division said it will follow strict safety standards to ensure the best services and operation of every vintage motorcycle restoration project.
