Welcome to Limey Bikes. Vintage Japanese motorcycles
Specializing in ONLY pre 1980 (with exceptions) Japanese vintage motorcycles. That’s all we do as we believe that shops should stick to what they are good at and not try to do everything just to make a buck.
However, if your engine was designed in the 60′s or 70′s but manufactured in the 80′s… we will also be able to help.
We offer full restorations, engine building, electrical, carburetor rebuilds, chassis upgrades, cafe racers, bobbers, street trackers or just maintenance to help keep these old machines on the road. We DO NOT sell motorcycles, but we do have donors with titles and we will always be happy to build one up from scratch for you.
The Limey does have a huge thing for the Yamaha XS650 and the 500 singles, so you could say it’s a specialty.
If you simply want advice on buying a classic, he can help. He offers honest advice and doesn’t even mind if you’d like to watch and learn a few tips on keeping your bike in tip-top shape… as long as you are accompanied with a bacon cheeseburger or two.
