CMR, builder of Scorpion
During the 80’s Bernard Sr. concentrated on the wholesale and the mail order side of the business and expanded to a new warehouse
in 1987. CMR continued to grow and sales increased all across Canada. The once famous garage was forgotten.
In the 90’s CMR evolved again with the arrival of the son Bernard Jr. who took an interest in mechanics, customizing and performance
engine work and started his career in Drag racing at 18 years old. He raced every weekend for 4 years, gaining the knowledge
he now applies in his work.
Fifteen later, Bernard Jr. has put the CMR garage back on top with a newly renovated
4000 sq. feet garage, Dyno test facility and modern machine shop, sheet metal and
frame modification area. CMR’s Service Department can handle anything, any job from
tire changes on the new Coats 200ex tire machine to a complete custom made wiring
job. Harleys of any year or model are welcome.
