My first 20 years in the trade were spent running Terry Hobbs British Motorcycle Shop in Plymouth,the last 15 building my own. Our ebay shop sells good quality spares and tools for British four strokes. The items we sell on ebay are only a fraction of what we hold in stock, so please contact us if you are looking for more. My workshop is located in Devon: 8 Mill Hill Cottages, Mill hill, Tavistock Devon PL19 8NW: visitors are welcome but please ring prior to visit. Normal hours of business are 9am - 10pm Monday and Tuesday, 9am - 6pm wednesday to Friday and 10am - 1pm on Saturday.
We don't only supply spares. A fully equiped workshop is always busy with repairs, servicing, restoration, engine and gearbox overhauls, wheel building, bead blasting and polishing and more. Please feel free to phone us if you would like to know more about any of the services offered or if you need advice on which specific spares you need for your marque and year of bike - I am always happy to be of assistance.
As a rule we try and source our spares from British manufacturers if at all possible and aim to provide a choice between genuine parts and good quality pattern parts. I am not in the game of breaking bikes purely to sell their parts as I believe in the preservation of our classic motorcycles, not the destruction of them. As there is an abundance of second hand parts and more new good quality spares than ever, why destroy a perfectly good machine? We ride our classics regularly (my regular hack is my 1939 Triumph 100 and my wife Ann rides a 1966 Tiger 100SS) and we enjoy taking an active part in the classic scene. My passion for motorcycles is not confined to the machines of past years - I ride the new Triumph Explorer and I take a keen interest in what the British Motorcyle Industry is generating.
