A chef by profession with a motorcycle shop that specializes in Honda restoration as a hobby job (where does he find the time?)

Corey Bourassa brings decaying Japanese machines from the early 1960s to the mid-1970s back to life. The bikes that he gets running and sells aren’t costly – maybe $1,000 to $1,500.

He buys, fixes, sells, and flips bikes. He’s owned his shop just outside Boston for six years and usually acquires 10-15 Hondas each year. “I buy ’em, flip ’em,” he said. “Buy two, sell one. Buy three, sell one. It’s a functional hobby.”

“It’s great for the entry-level collector or the entry-level mechanic,” Bourassa said. “They’re around town bikes. They’re fun. They’re conversation pieces – reasonably reliable.”
