A visit to Sam’s Harlem Hideaway…

For months now, I have been talking with Sam about heading up to Harlem, to see the workshop and check out his Honda CB 350 in person.  The weather was perfect for a ride, and despite having to deal with the FDR, the trip was well worth it.  Holy s#*t, this place is incredible!

MotoPreserve has some nice gear.  We are very fortunate to have a Harbor Freight mill and lathe, and large air compressor.  But this Harlem workshop is a palace of equipment, and the work that can be done here is on a different level.  Neat and functional, the basement workshop has everything you need to fab just about any part you’d ever need on a custom motorcycle (except a CNC machine, which apparently is in the dream stages…).

We were impressed with some of the projects that Sam had taken on before, but now look forward to seeing what he comes up with as he gets comfortable with all the new options.  Man,  the possibilities are limitless…
