Need some advice

I am in the process of fixing up an old Honda CT-90 trail bike. I am going to need to get the cylinder re-bored. Anyone have personal experience with a machine shop that did a decent job on their re-bore as to feel comfortable making a recommendation. Thanks, Gerry

Bike shop

For all you Chico riders that need a bike shop.
I don't really know the name, but if you like an old time shop here is a good one.
It is two old motorcycle guys that have a shop out by the airport. One guy is named Craig Hanson 342-8049. Can't remember the other guys name. Anyway these guys are a "Must know about". Their place is just a hole in the wall in the industrial area of the airport. they along with there prices are out of the seventy's. If you need more info getting in touch with them let me know. they can be a valuable source especially with the older stuff.
If and when you go into their shop trust me to know your bike wont get lost, they have a ton of bikes in there, but you will get your stuff done and they know what they are doing. they have been at it longer than you have been alive. Good guys, Craig always comes out and helps me with my Trials event out by Black Butte in April.

Just dropped the bike off to get the "new to me" rear rack "fitted" at the welders, otherwise I'd be in. Looks like the weather is going to be very nice!

I rode up to the snow in cohasset yesterday then dropped into the canyon at the cohasset/ponderosa junctions and rode above forest ranch. Then went down Crown point road to Doe mill then Powelton to Lovelock. The snow got real thick on Powelton above lovelock but the junction of both roads was next to none. Muddy none the less. Here's a link to the photos from yesterdays ride http://s1240.beta.photobucket.com/us...0to%20Lovelock

Excellant photoshoot.

Another option to ride is maybe start at center gap and see what happens from there. Maybe meet in the raley's parking lot at mitre dame and skyway.

Well I just got my 525 back together after it's most recent rebuild still working on some electrical issues and trying to figure out what gearing to run. I'd like to tag along if the ride develops for Sunday.
