At The Pit Stop I am trusted with some very special bikes, some very new and very fast, some a little older and pehaps a little slower (or not as the case may be !), but classic bikes that are just as much the owners pride and joy as the modern superbike, cruiser or custom bike. As an "Old School"  time served motor engineer and self confessed petrol head, I take great pleasure in working on these bikes. Here I have the necessary equipment and knowledge needed to carry out a professional job to the standard you all expect.  Pictured below are just a few examples of bikes and wheelsI have had the pleasure of working on, and hope that this demonstrates you can trust me with your own machine or wheels.
Please note, for classic and vintage bikes, this is not a "KwikFit" Service !   It takes as long as it takes to do an "old school "proper job ! These are often best left and I will ring when ready.
Be it a loved classic, vintage or modern super bike, I take care of it as if it was my own. What ever the machine, It will be treated with respect.
Classic bike tyres
The Dunlop classic tube type tyres are available in several sizes, and as a tube type tyre must have an inner tube fitted. I always fit a new tube as this is a safety related concern. They are made as K70 rears, K81 (TT100) universal & K82 universal.
 Also available an many classic sizes are the AVON Roadrider and Bridgestone BT45 ranges, very popular for many classic Japanese bikes as well as British machines
 Prices for tyres fitted to a loose wheel inc VAT, but maybe subject to new inner tube (approx £12<£15) and rim tape (£1.20) on "tube type" rims . Great care is taken with all wheels, but as I am sure you will appreciate, fitting tyres to classic and vintage wire spoked wheels are much more time consuming. I prefer to have wheels left with me and I will call you when it is ready to be collected. The oldest one I have done so far, a 1920 Phelon &Moore (Pre Panther), others, many Panthers, BSA, Triumph, Sunbeam, Velocete etc(Not had a Vincent yet, but, I am available)  
 Supply only prices are available for those of you who wish to fit your own tyres !
Please ring me (Andy) for a price on the tyres / tubes & rim tapes that you may need.
