Hi all, My name is chuck and I am new to all this p/c stuff.Don't like change I guess.Butttt I own a 52S hummer and need help in some restoration work. Yesterday I found this web site and found a couple of names but was hoping I might find someone closer to where I live,which happens to be Moab,Utah. If anyone has any info please send it my way.The bike isn't in real bad shape,but it doesn't look like it rolled off the show room floor either.Thanks for your time.There are some really great looking lightweights on this web site.Hope I can add another one soon. Chuck

Chuck,
If you're planning on doing the work yourself there are several things you need to get first. Buy a Parts Catalog and a Service Manual for your bike first. Familiarize yourself with the contents then make a list of all the parts and services you need to accomplish. Also by surfing the net through the Hummer Club website you can get a good idea of who supplies what and what services are available. This site is your most valuable resource. All the major parts and service suppliers are on the "Hummer Exchange" regularly with lots of good advice (use the search feature). Once you familiarize yourself with the above books and suppliers you'll be able to ask more pointed questions that will produce better answers. These are very simple machines but you have to have a certain level of mechanical aptitude to work on them. If you're reasonably mechanically inclined you should be able to handle a hummer restoration with ease using the help available here.
