ALL MAKES OF MOTORCYCLES SERVICED FAST FRIENDLY & SUPERB SERVICE
Our aim in setting up this business is to work with clients in the procurement, sale or storage of classic motorcycles. Classic motorcycles are becoming increasingly attractive as investment opportunities and you can invest from around as little as £2000. Why have money in the bank earning practically nothing when you can invest in something which is not only a joy to own, but will potentially offer a very good return on investment. The small selection of motorcycles have been carefully chosen as representing not only good value for money but also will be a pleasure to own and a sound investment in respect of future value. Nothing can be guaranteed of course but the pleasure of owning a classic motorcycle will always eclipse a bank statement.
Our current stock list can be found here together with detailed descriptions of the machines plus high resolution photographs. Upon purchasing any of the motorcycles customers will receive a file containing:
Whilst primarily for investment purposes all of the motorcycles here are or can be made road worthy this is entirely up to the purchaser, however this will be at an additional cost.
These are classic motorcycles that, for anything other than basic maintenance, require specialist attention.
Each motorcycle is different and requires careful consideration before taking on the road. Some of the motorcycles featured are relatively straight forward to ride and can be ridden by people with limited experience. The older motorcycles and more race focussed bikes are suited principally for riders with greater experience. Modern motorcycles, even superbikes are relatively user friendly, with fuel injection, ABS and traction control, older motorcycles have few if any of these rider aids, which make them a lot more challenging to ride and many might argue more enjoyable.
My personal view is that you should look too acquire a classic motorcycle because you want to own and enjoy one, rather than purely as an investment. Whilst classic motorcycle prices have increased well above interest rates over the past few years, there is no guarantee that will continue.
It is very unlikely that you will lose money, providing you choose wisely, but ongoing maintenance and storage costs need to be considered.
There is however the joy of ownership, whether it’s actually riding the bike on a summer day or simply admiring it in your (hopefully climate controlled) garage. This you really cannot put a price on and perhaps rather than the potential financial return should be the main motivation for acquisition.
Motorcycle Investment Services is the brain child of two old farts who really should know better. Bob and Dennis were pals back in school in the 1970’s running around on a Puch Maxi and FS1e respectively. They then went their separate ways, one forging a career in the air force and then the private sector, the other working in the film industry before starting and subsequently selling his own media business. Rather than do the sensible thing and retire gracefully the two have decided to spend their autumn years indulging a mutual passion, the sale and restoration of classic (and some no so classic) motorcycles. With absolutely no debt and very low overheads MIS is able to provide not only great customer service but also pricing which you will find amongst the most competitive in the business. Whilst MIS isn’t designed to lose money it’s not a profit driven business, we are looking at having fun, doing what we enjoy and being part of the classic bike and local community.
