Is Your Carb Screwed? Let Dave’s Machine Shop Give It What It Needs.

What do ya do with yourself after 30 years in the military? I can think of all kinds of options, one of which would be to spend all day with my feet in the air drinking whiskey and/or chasing women. Or you could decide to do what Dave Young has done. Start a small machine shop turning out all types of one-of-a-kind parts.

Instead of spending nine months a year sailing around the world visiting strange ports and or even stranger back alley bars, Dave is hunched over his lathe, supplying everything from machined stainless steel allen screws for a Keihin carb to brass extended idle screws for the S&S Super E. We had the honor to hold some of his parts and install them on our own 5-Ball Bagger project bike. Personally, I’m glad he decided to stay hunched over his lathe, but I hope he still finds time for a stout bottle of whiskey

Dave, thanks for your service!
