Mark's Place

At 70+ years old, my mentor Mark Spitler is still re-building and selling airheads. Over the years as I progressed into other areas on the airhead, Mark now brings me all his gearboxes for me to go through. Its great practice and fun to see the MacGyver-ish things previous owners have done to their gearboxes.

Mark's "Mule", he calls it his work bike. You'll often see him cruising the 405 freeway with tires, gearboxes or any other airhead parts loaded on the back of this R80. I'm rebuilding the gearbox off this bike for him.

A R90S he's currently building for a customer out in the East. The gearbox was rebuilt by yours truly.

Mark's first airhead under the cover, he calls it "Joe Black". It started as a R90S, but its been converted too many times with hot parts. Another one of his personal favorites is his 1976 R75/6.
