Get LT Restorations

From the purchase of my first bike in 1975 to the acquisition of the Beamish Owners Club in 2022 my love of bikes has grown over the years.


My Story

I purchased my first bike (Gilera 50 Trials) in my early teens and I've had one or two since then!!! From Trials bikes to Motocross to Enduro and then onto the road. I even dabbled into racing both on the track and road. Full time employment for nearly 40 years gave me little time to pursue my hobby but I never lost my love of all thing bikes including visiting tracks across Europe to watch Moto GP.  

Restorations & Re-Commissioning

Get LT Restorations

About 5 years ago I took early retirement and had more time to spend in my shed. Looking for a bike, I came across one I owned in the 1990's, Suzuki RGV (Picture below), with very few changes. It turned out that it had been stored for many years with minimal additional mileage so I bought it back!!  So restorations became a hobby which led to me starting a business. I now specialise in Suzuki Exacta/Beamish/RL250 and Puch Magnums and have roped in my wife, Sue, to help.
