About LR Fix offers guidance to help diagnose, upgrade, service and/or restore older machines. Goal: Keeping older vehicles, dirt bikes, ATVs, mowers, blowers and small engines functional beyond their natural end of life cycles.

All models eventually go out of production and when they do parts and knowledge can become scarce. When that happens owners are left to their own ingenuity to get a little more life from their older machines. LR Fix is here to help solve everyday challenges on older equipment and machinery, one challenge at a time.

LR Fix is an extension of Leon's interests.

About Leon - Founder

Leon has an electronics engineering degree and has completed additional courses on a wide range of related subjects from welding to electrical construction. Leon also has a lifelong passion for all things with a motor, large and small, gas and electric powered. The older the better!

When Leon isn't in his barn tinkering with his collection of 1898-1920 hit-miss engines, or his extensive collection of older outdoor power equipment, or helping neighbors with theirs, he enjoys sharing his knowledge online.
