We are an independent bike shop based in Metheringham just outside Lincoln but our customers come from all over the country. If you need something doing, give us a call and we'll try and help. Whether it's OE repairs, motor work or something custom. We even sell complete bikes.

We are everyday regular riders. Our own bikes range from the 'teens' to the 2000's but most of our miles are done on knuckles and pans. Experience includes 10+ years working for the 'motor co' as well as time spent in major US custom shops and all our work is guaranteed.

Auto jumble delights

Went down see Darren and co at Farm Fresh last week and picked up these parts for the '13 9B.

Nice pair of original lights, Prestolite gas canister and a rack for a 1915.  They never made racks or carriers for Harleys until 14 onward so this one will need some work like the Corbin speedo did.

The 1915 season was the real step forward for Harley, mainly due to the three speed trans and that's the year the accessory side really took off as well. Loads of stuff is available for 15 and later and much of it can be retro-fitted with a little work.

Work starts

We're going through this one head to toe. It will be a strong rider but look real beat up.

Front and rear hubs have been checked and adjusted as needed, new rear brake shoes, all the lower fork bushes, top inner springs, fork bearings.  New seat post bush, handlebars straightened, toolbox strap removed, repaired and replaced. Brake pedal bush remade, clutch rocker repaired and it still looks like nothing has been done. But that's the idea.

They're all 47s

They all seem to be 47s these days.

Bullneck frame, offset forks and unusual (for 47) 18" wheels.
