We do lots of custom work here at Rick’s Motorsport Electrics. We love keeping those vintage machines on the road and sometimes the only way to replace the part is to rebuild it! Other times, we’re trying to improve the design or enhance the performance of the part. When the original manufacturer decides to stop production of electrical parts, it takes that machine off the road or trail. With a custom rebuild, there are no minimum production runs so we can make a one off part. We also have an opportunity to possibly upgrade a part. By examining the original piece & running it through numerous tests, we can determine if we’re able to give it an extra boost.
There is a lot of time and research that goes into a custom rebuild, so you want to make sure you seek out an experienced technician. Whether it’s gathering specs or reverse engineering the part, you need to be certain the tech knows what they’re doing. Rick started rebuilding old Honda rotors back in the early 1980s so we have LOTS of knowledge & experience! We have 2 full time technicians on staff to do all of our custom rebuilding work. Here are some of our latest custom builds:

Here’s a sneak peak into the custom rebuilding process here at Rick’s Motorsport Electrics:
Oftentimes, we have customers that turn to us as their last resort to get their machine back on the road. By offering this service we get to see a lot of unique pieces and be a part of some pretty cool projects! So, if you’re looking for a part that you don’t see in our online catalog, then shoot us an email or give us a call! It’s always best to snap a couple photos of your part and email them to make sure we can help before you pay to ship it to us. Most custom work takes about 7-10 business days to build but some advanced pieces can take longer so keep that in mind if you’re doing a project build. We will also need specs from your service manual, so gather that info before you send your part to us.
