Would anyone here know where a Concentric carb can be re-sleeved? I am in Southern California.

Thank you in advance

Here's one option. Quick question, how bad is your carb(s)? Reason I ask is, I've been contemplating getting both on my 70 A65L resleeved but every time I run into problems I disassemble, deburr the slides/bodies, reassemble, reset idle mixture and all seems well for a few thousand more miles. At what point do most people resleeve/replace their concentrics?

That place is great for resleeve. I've had 4 sets done with great results.

Yes, he does good work, did four carbs for me. But now I buy new AMAL Premier Concentrics. By the time I replace all the internals on the old carb and send it out for bore&sleeve, the price is pretty close. Also, once the body is bored and the slide is sleeved, that's that, you can't pop in another slide of a different cutaway. 2c

New carbs are indeed the answer....IF you don't care about originality in judging.

For those of us who seek authenticity in restorations, the original carbs - with the factory stamps on the carb bodies - are the ones we want on those bikes.
That's why we ask eBay sellers "What are the numbers stamped into the mounting flange?"
Those numbers will tell us what make, year and model of bike the carb was originally on.

In the case of concentrics, those numbers are the tiny ones stamped into that lozenge-shaped raised area on the side of the carb body.

This is why we are willing to spend what it costs to re-sleeve the old carbs.

For "show AND GO," but the "go' is for pleasure riding.

The days of our old British bikes being world-beaters on the streets is pretty much past.
My bikes are OLD, and SO AM I.

as a side note to re-sleeving I sure would like to find out how to check the float level

I've had two sets done at Lund. They both turned out great. Needed originality so didn't want new carbs. Since the work was done years ago, I've not had to touch them. They perform great.
