Carb Rebuild Program

I am pleased to sponsor Randakk’s Approved Honda GL1000 / GL1100 / GL1200 / GL1500 / CBX / CX500 / DOHC-4 / FT500 Carb Rebuilder Program.

Due to the growth of my business and the time required to develop unique products for the GL1000, GL1100, GL1200, GL1500, CBX, CX500, DOHC-4, FT500 and other vintage bikes, I no longer rebuild carbs for customers.

If you would prefer to have a “pro” rebuild your carbs, here’s the answer. You can now have a professional rebuild your carbs via a Randakk’s Approved Honda GL1000 / GL1100 / GL1200/ GL1500 / CBX / CX500 / DOHC-4 / FT500 Carb Rebuilder. You can trust your carbs to any of these folks as I have rigorously vetted their capabilities.

Each Approved Carb Rebuilder sources carb rebuild Master Kits and other carb-related parts from Randakk’s Cycle Shakk and uses them exclusively in all their rebuilds .

Randakk’s Approved Honda GL1000 / GL1100 / GL1200 / GL1500 / CBX / CX500 / DOHC-4 / FT500 Carb Rebuilders are:

  • Carefully and personally screened and selected by me.
  • Thoroughly knowledgeable on the intricacies of these vintage Honda carbs and how to rebuild them to exacting standards.
  • Each of these rebuilders is intimately familiar with the information documented in my GL1000 Carb Overhaul Video
  • Aware of the year-to-year model variances.
  • Fully familiar with all the specific carb overhaul recommendations I make on this TECH/BLOG.
  • Not going to make any of the amateur mistakes detailed here
  • Capable of supporting “through-the-mail” or in-shop work depending on your preference.

  1. can any one recommend where I can get the carbs for my Honda GL1500 rebuilt. I have seen a few adds. after loots of searching the web and I say lots of searching. but the connection’s I have found do not even have web sites. or if the do they do not list addresses or phone numbers. I need a Pro rebuild on the carbs for my 1999 Gl1500 Goldwing. please help!

  2. I was fortunate enough to be able to meet Pete and Chris Moody ( Pistol Pete’s Service ) this September . A friend and I were on our annual ” Guys’ Ride ” to the Dragon . We stopped by on the way back to say hi and I wanted to thank them for the GREAT work they had done rebuilding the carbs off my 1977 Goldwing ! It starts faster than my 1800 some days . It runs great . We visited and talked bikes for almost an hour and then to our pleasant surprise he went home to get his “76 . He lead us on a great ride for better part of 50 miles through some awesome scenery and twisty highways . BOY can he ride !! What a wonderful and nice pair of people !

      1. I just contacted Pistol Pete about rebuilding the carbs on my ’75 GL1000. His reply…….Sorry to let you know but we will no longer rebuild carburetors and will soon restructure our website. Who else you got Randak? Thanks for all you do.

  3. I have rebuilt quite a few CBX carbs over the years and I always use your parts. I have a customer that will be ordering parts in the next day or two and I let him know that there is no better place than Randakk’s to get them. Thank you for your dedication to the oldies.

  4. I used Pistol Pete’s Services a few years back and I can not say enough good things about him, my carbs were a mess and he said he needed to put them on and off his test motor 3 different times to get them working as they should. I received the carbs bolted them back on my bike and it was like a new machine!!

    For the money I will always recommend Pistol Pete’s Services!!
