 Hello!  Sorry the website has not been updated recently, we have been really busy, and have not had chance to get many bikes ready for sale. Have a look at our bikes for sale page, where you will find details of some of the bikes we have on offer, and if you see anything of interest, give us a call. Missing pictures will be added as soon as possible.


We have now got in stock brand new original 70's trail pattern tyres, in sizes 3.50 X 18 and 2.75 X 21, perfect for DT175's, and other similar bikes. Very hard to find in these sizes, sold in pairs at £110 + £12 next day delivery! Call for details!


It is once again approaching the Stafford show and we are already planning ahead. We will  have parts and bikes for sale, on our stand in the Main Hall, so drop by for a look and a chat! 

We will be happy to discuss any work you would like done, or help you find a bike you are looking for!
