We have been getting more people coming in and asking about what we can do for them with regards to their bike build. Recently though I've had a few people say to me that the last place they went to said I have to do it their way!

Now I might be wrong but I think that the way we do it is a better way. We work with you to build the bike you want the way you wanted it to be. I always say to customers that it's your money and your bike, you tell us what you want.

So - we here in our shop and have been so for a few months now. Still working some signage and fit out, but all good things come to those who wait. 

Workshop wise we have a Virago 535 here that were finishing off as a bobber. Been a slow task as I've had to work out chopped and melted wiring, butchered frame work and some dodgy mechanical work. Should be a good ol' thing when it's done.

On a different note we are now a Skyteam Motorcycles dealer. For those of you who don't know Skyteam make various small capacity bikes including the ACE which is a re-boot of the old Honda Dream racer from the late 50's / 60's. They have been pretty popular, but have been...
