Dave Van Meter on the 1979 YZ

Van Meter Engineering provides the service of designing and manufacturing parts which may be difficult to obtain for rare or vintage machines.

Our Engineer can discuss your idea, sketch, drawing or schematic and create it in a Computer Aided Design (CAD) environment. This allows the item to be manufactured precisely by allowing each step of the processes to utilize the same electronic drawings and specifications.

We also offer the added benefit of providing metalworking services you would normally expect from a Machine or Welding shop. The pairing of both the design and manufacture of your product gives us the unique ability to make sure your product meets your specific needs.
