    Local engine builders

    Anyone is or know of local engine builders? Its for my TLR, so should cost half as much right? Its only two cylinders!

    I haven't touched the bike in a bit, and I know when I parked it I had a water leak. Based on the work thats needed, time and that I have never done an engine before, I am considering options to get back on 2 wheels. Love the bike so its worth the money, I don't see selling it so thinking I might give the old girl a full on rebuild. Also considering options on putting a couple extra ponies into it, but all that would be price based.

    Do we have any local motor gurus or engine shops? COS / Denver / area?

    They work with a lot of 2 cylinders and have a machine shop in house. They build a lot of the racer's engines here in Colorado too.

    Not gonna lie, had no idea we had so many who build in the area. SHouldn't be surprised, but.... Coming from FL, they have bike shops like Baptist churches, one on every other corner.

    I will start looking at the options above. Thanks y'all, any other recommendations / options are appreciated.
