B & N Hotrod is a family run business that began with Bill Lemon (Hotrod Bill) back in May 1999. Bill started by selling retail parts in Port Moody, BC. He carried on the business for seven years on his own, with help from family & friends throughout the years. In October 2006 Neil Lemon (the N in the company) joined on with his father to start the fabrication side of the business. Since then, they have grown into a company that can service all of their clients needs under the same roof.
Bill has owned a few different cars in his younger years.
