JD Jugs is the remanufacturer of J/JD/JDH model Cylinders.
JD Jugs is a Melbourne based venture, using quality materials and traditional techniques to re-manufacture J, JD and JDH model cylinders.
The group of dedicated men behind JD Jugs began this adventure after many frustrating years spent unsuccessfully trying to repair damaged cylinders.
The team has spent years researching and trialing casting methods and metallurgy to reach the point the company is at today – road testing cylinders!
Beckwith involvement in the castings began at the begining of the project and we continue to produce castings for a very happy customer. A great story behind the development can be fully appreciated by visiting their website http://www.jdjugs.com/ website and following them on facebook. JD Jugs took a product which became scarce to find, repair or fix and reproduced a final product worthy of being displayed at the Harley Davidson Museum in Milwaukee.
Testimonial from J D Jugs – Stuart Richie (Director)
Replicating motorcycle parts from 100 years ago when cheap labour was abundant and a 50-60% failure rate was acceptable has been an amazing journey.
Sourcing skilled artisans for this task was immensely difficult. While we found it necessary to use numerous Pattern Makers and Machinists there has been one constant; Beckwith Iron and Steel.
With Beckwith no job is too big or too small, and experience has shown they happily rise to every challenge. They have the skill, expertise and patience to handle the most intricate and complicated jobs and clients (me).
I cannot recommend them highly enough. Check out their work at JD Jugs
