About us

Located in a mews very near Alexandra Palace in North London, Dave and his team create their magic for members of the UK scooter community.

 

Dave has over 22 years scooter sales and repair experience and 25 years experience as a rider.

 

His career in scooter repairs started out with a 12 year stint at a London Piaggio main dealer.  After learning how to repair and respray scooters, he setup his own business and, for the past 10 years has achieved what most people dream of, turning his passion into his work.

 

As a result of this skill, attention to detail and passion, he has built up a very loyal following of customers and an envoius collection of bikes too.  The current collection includes four Lambrettas (Li Special, 1967 race tuned 190), a 1965 Vespa GT, a Gillera Runner, three Vepsa PX200's, a couple of Vespa ET2's and a few others too.

 

Dave is also a member of The New Originals Scooter Club who are based in North London and he can often be found on their ride-outs or reparing/restoring bikes for them.

 

Working with Dave as his right hand man is Don who has been fixing bodywork on cars and bikes for many years.  Together, they ensure that every bike leaves the spraybooth in perfect condition.

 

For many scooter owners, their bike is not just a mode of transport, but it can also be a "way of life".  As a result of Dave's reputation, many scooterists travel great distances to have him work on their bikes.  To see examples of the work he and Don do, just take a look at the Gallery pages of the website.  You will spot a few smiling faces too!
