Located in Central New Jersey, BridgeBurner is an alternative to high volume Brooklyn shops for conscientious repair and restoration of classic bikes.


Owned and operated by John Waverka, BridgeBurner is a continuation of a passion for machines in which form follows function, and function is almost always designed to be fast, fun and efficient.

John is a product of a few intense decades of experience making vintage machines do what they were built to do right.

After years in foreign car repair shops, he served his eight years as service manager at NYC's Cooper Classic Cars, developing skills as a Rolls Royce coach master and making rote the practice of holding a Jaguar XK120's pistons in your hands one day to hunkering down and trying to take it to the ton on the west side highway the next. This experience with function, fit and finish coincided with the space and room to develop his real love for machines that roll on two wheels.  Finding a place to develop his own projects in his small New Jersey shop, he has built a reputation of doing right for his friends, partners and customers. The right advice, the right process, the best performance.
