Restorations, Repairs, Servicing and Sales in the North West from Pitstop Motorcycles

Images of Our ShopPitstop Motorcycles first opened in 1989, initially specialising in used bike spares/breaking and repairs. We have made many changes over the years to keep up with the changing needs of our customers including investing in more and better tools, and a bigger workshop/show room.

We are hoping to help more bikers with our facilities and use our experience gained over the last 20 years. We have developed this website to try and keep in touch with our customers motorcycle needs and to help us give the best motorcycle services to all our customers. We also want to help with all aspects of motorcycling for our customers by listening to your suggestions, providing links to useful websites and keeping our prices as competitive as possible whilst not sacrificing care and quality.

We still have a large stock of used motorcycle parts but now offer a wider range of new motorcycle parts/accessories and a more professional motorcycle workshop service. We have a "soft spot" for 1970's and 80's Japanese motorcycles and can help with motorcycle restorations etc. We also make one off parts and build specials on request.

Please have a look at our Motorcycles For Sale page to see current ranges of motorcycle sales, They can be viewed on line or at our showroom. (Virtual showroom coming soon)

For more information about the types of repairs and restorations we do then have a look at our Repairs and Services page, Projects and Restorations page, or call in store and ask our staff.
