Don Hutchinson, John Healy, & Leo Goff
Vintage Motorcycling: Discussions on Mechanics, Restoration, Performance, and Folk Lore
With diverse backgrounds and 150+ years of combined experience, Don, John, and Leo will explore the inner workings and restoration of vintage motorcycles. Their areas of expertise center on popular British motorcycle brands and offer applicability to American and Japanese motorcycle brands as well. Their seminars are formatted as open discussions, and they encourage you to ask questions and participate.
Don Hutchinson is a well-known Triumph restoration specialist with a successful restoration and paint supply business. He has painted motorcycles for over 50 years.
John Healy is a former Triumph dealer who publishes Vintage Bike magazine for the Triumph International Owners Club. John is also a distributor of vintage Triumph, BSA, Norton, and Vincent spare parts.
Leo Goff opened his dealership in the late 1960s, focusing on British and European brands, but offering services and modifications to all brands, including American and Japanese. With his extensive experience, his focus is on component rebuilding and restoration preparation, and machining operations. His competition experience is highlighted by campaigning a single-engine Norton dragster to a World Championship in the mid-1980s, in a field dominated by modern Japanese factory-backed bikes.
Kennie Buchanan worked alongside his father, Jim, and his brother, Robert, at Buchanan’s Frame Shop in California, for the majority of his life. In fact, he started off with small, fun tasks in the family’s shop at the age of five and was entrusted with larger jobs as a teen. The family shop, which first opened in 1958, is now known as Buchanan’s Spoke & Rim, Inc., and it’s considered THE best for custom-built wheels, spokes, and rims. Kennie will talk about the artistry of wheels, field questions, and offer you the opportunity to glean from his 50+ years of experience.
