Since the early 1990's Malcolm here at Classic British Spares has been providing customers motorcycles with tune-ups, rebuilds and restorations on a multitude of vintage British motorcycles 

Including makes from Triumph, BSA, Norton, Sunbeam, Matchless and Ariel 

It was this time where Classic British Spares was making a positive name and mark within the vintage British motorcycle community as the "go to" to service and parts

Over the years we have worked on, repaired and helped many motorcycles in deep despair looking for a new life back on the road

I wanted to share with you some of our previous work and our personal bikes currently in our stable

Enjoy..

 

Triumph T90 (350) "Road Racer"

 Triumph T90 350 Road Racer

The Triumph T90 road racer was built by Kyle here at Classic British Spares

There was quite of bit of R&D that has gone into this machine to make this little 350 "go"

Every bit of detail including the special cylinder head built by "Lief Lewis" at Lief Racing Engines, Mega Cycle cams, Tri-Cor oil tank, and a lot more goodies inside..

1965 BSA B40 "Enduro Star"

1965 BSA B40 Enduro Star

This B40 Enduro Star was a long time shop bike that was literally missing everything..

Hollow cases, no tank, no seat, no head, no barrel... just a rolling chassis

Kyle revamped this machine down to the bare frame and currently has over 200 miles on the new build 

Notice that the paint scheme is from a "Victor" however, this machine is an "Enduro Star" 350 - only a trained eye can spot the difference

Frame - 1965 C15C
Brakes - Stock
Exhaust - Stock high-pipe
