Works Engineering

Gearhead Eric Green has the best of bikes and beers with Works Engineering, his very own vintage motorcycle repair shop connected to Bar Matchless. The shop is the product of a long-standing love and borderline obsession with vintage bikes, and specializes in European models. Green began his career with Team Obsolete, racing, wrecking, and rebuilding retro bikes. DUMBO housed his first repair shop before he moved to his present location almost 3 years ago. Green still races and rides bikes, though he is usually riding his wife’s bikes. “I’m a mechanic so none of my bikes ever work,” Green explains. When Green’s not fixing bikes he can usually be found fixing pints behind the bar.
