Wrenching Weekend Motorcycle Maintenance

A weekend of wrenching for vintage, European & air-cooled motorcycles!

This class will include hands on, demonstration and instruction in the areas of motorcycle maintenance with an emphasis on vintage, European and air-cooled bikes. We will spend the greater part of the next two days deep in wrenching, demos, and great conversation about the nuances of maintaining a vintage motorcycle. You will come away from this weekend of wrenching with the information you need to get started maintaining your own motorcycle, plenty of helpful resources, and with a sense of community in your maintenance endeavors.

I've ridden and maintained my vintage BMW motorcycles for over 20 years and I love sharing my passion for airheads with friends, family and at wrenching days with my local Airheads Club.


I'm an adventurer and explorer, a climber, a lover of food and cooking for friends, a vegetable gardener and an interaction designer at frog!


making is breaking. knowing is doing. you'll never learn if you don't try.


Learning is my hobby.


Think. Make. Share. Rinse. Repeat. I want to affect change locally, and see the world through your lens.


Learning is to life as water is to a tree? Hour School class on profoundness please.

Motorcycle maintainence is definitely a lot more difficult these days. I've seen people who do the best essay writing try and maintain their motorcycle properly, but they are not able to do that. The maintanence requires a lot of work.
