I sent two master cylinders, two wheel cylinders and a proportion valve to Karp's back in November and they're still not done so they must be really busy.

Just got my M/C back from Mike Gibbons brake restoration. The lid was done very well but have not yet put the brakes back into service.

I did not realize Mike was doing masters (til now). I was really happy with the service I received on my booster. This site proves it's worth again!

Mike Gibbons does excellent work, and a sponsor on the site. He has expanded what Steve Gregori was offering. Quick turn around and excellent quality and detail!

I think he sends the masters and proportioning valves out. He said I’m at the mercy of the rebuilder with time

I had Brake & Equipment Warehouse here in Minneapolis, MN do mine last summer and they turned it around in a few days, but they might be a little longer on waiting time now. It can hurt to check with them. They did great work. You can reach them at 612-378-3134. When you call you will need to ask for the guys in the shop. I hope this helps you out.

Lonestar Caliper did a phenomenal job on one for me. (I'm going to have another post on how the booster turned out from Mike at Brakeboosters)
