    Hi Guys, I am spending a year or so in Canberra and was wondering if there was anyone independant in Canberra that have a good reputation of engine re builds, upgrades and a Dyno. I have a Lowrider S, 117 and a seat of heads from RAMS that need whacking on. Independant brand cams installed, crank, the whole box and dice. Getting it done in Sydney would be a pain in the arse. Cheers.

    There used to be three options but now only two. One is the dealer and the only dyno operator for Harleys in town. The other is an Indy I use. Bestway choppers and customs in conder. He's online and on Facebook I think. Runs out of a workshop at his house. Name is Jason (Bear). I dunno if either of the two options will do any crank work. I think they'd send it off somewhere else. 
    Good luck I think you've got the heads I wanted to buy haha

    Moto Garage in Mitchel does do dyno tuning as well. They've posted a few results of Harley's on the Facebook page. I'm still deciding which one I'll get to do my tune after I fit my new exhaust.

     Yeh I was just gonna whack a 3 piece S&S crank which hopefully they can handle. I will check them out. Thanks mate. Once it’s done you can test those heads you wanted :)

    Haha I might take you up on that one day. 
    Jason's very meticulous and I'm sure you'd be happy if you used him. He's also an s&s dealer re the crank. I think you're doing the right thing getting the upgraded crank after getting those heads onto the 117 which is probably pushing the limits of the oem bottom end. I wouldnt be surprised if the dealer tried to talk you out of it or didn't want the job.

    Better elaborate on that.
    Harley shop can build you a reliable engine, but not really open to anything but SE gear and will hit you hard. They also put a tune in to get you running but if you are fussy and want a good custom dynotune you will have to branch out of Canberra.

     BestWay at Conder? Any experience down there Chriso? Who does your work if you have gone away from standard HD kit?
