Hello, I am Jeff Taylor,
I have worked non-stop in the motorcycle trade for 35yrs as a motorcycle mechanic. Honda trained at one of the first Honda authorised dealers in the South West of England and from then on remained working for dealership companies till the late 90's, during this period I also worked with Honda and KTM Enduro bikes, as well as the full range of road motorcycles.
Since the late 90's, with having a great passion for large engine motorcycles. I have worked for various establishments who specialised in the Secondhand large motorcycles, this includes not just Japanese, but Harley Davidson, Triumph, Aprilia, Victory and many more.
This work involved refurbishment and repairs covering a vast range of makes and models for re-sale, as well as servicing and carrying out MOT's on customers motorcycles. By working in the secondhand motorcycle trade, working with older motorcycles, which usually suffer from far more in depth problems than your average day to day servicing. Over the years I have gained a wealth of knowledge to diagnose and solving problems in less time.
Out of the 35yrs years spent as a qualified motorcycle mechanic, I have been an motorcycle MOT tester for 30yrs and I am aware of what standards are required to help get your motorcycle through MOT.
For me Motorcycles are not just a job, it's a hobby, a way of life. Over the years I have taken on many varied projects, Custom Chops, British Caferacer's, Streetfights, UXB (survivalist)and even cutting down and tuning a scooter capable of clocking 100mph.. just for fun!!
Over the years I have met and been influenced by many keen motorcyclist. One such person was my father-in-law 'Ray Smeaton'.
Ray was a very keen motorcyclist from an early age, from hanging out in the pits at Exeter Speedway, scrambling and the original hill climbing with grappling hooks. Joined the RAF became a aircraft mechanic, fabricator and crash investigator. Where ever he was billeted Ray would make sure he had a set of two wheels, so he would build a bike out of what he could find. So we had much in common and could talk bikes for hours on end, solving head scratching problems. Ray always embraced the future and would read about all the new Japanese and Italian motorcycle coming on the scene, sometimes I think it was a master mind contest to out wit me! I have found over the years many old and new techniques work well together, solving problems on classic and modern day motorbikes alike.
If you a motorcycle that you no longer want and wish to sell, I may be interested. If you have a non runner, MOT failure and have decided to sell.
