I have been repairing classic cars and motorcycles for the best part of 25 years. I absolutely love working on older cars and motorcycles, a perfect combination!
I am Bob, a 49 year old recently returned the UK after many years in the Netherlands. I am now based out of Burton Latimer, Northamptonhire. I work as a skilled classic car & motorcycle mobile mechanic and restoration guy. I specialise in working on old European cars, especially those from the 1960s and 1970s. However I have worked on vehicles from the 1930s through to 1999 including American monsters.
I am UK City & Guilds educated in mechanical engineering. Not only do I fix cars, I generally tend to make the exotic and hard to find components using my engineering skills. I can repair and service all makes and models of car (upto 1999), from minor brake and clutch repairs to complete engine overhauls and vehicle restorations.
I also offer pre-purchase inspections. There is nothing worse than buying a classic vehicle and then the apprehension sets in as we all know the costs involved! I offer you a consultation and inspection service of any classic you are considering buying.
My passion does not stop at classic cars, I am also a huge motorcycle enthusiast. I repair all kinds of motorcycles, from an oil change through to an engine replacement. I also love custom work. I have done projects in the past ranging from Bobber conversions to Harley Davidson custom work.
If you have an old timer that is in need of some attention, drop me a line. I am happy to discuss pricing for all projects whether a basic service to more extensive work. I cover all of Northamptonshire, I am also willing to discuss projects further afield. I am extremely competitively priced for this field of work.
How It Works
You Make Contact
You make contact me with me by phone or email giving as much detail about the issues with you vehicle as possible.
I discuss with you whether it can be repaired by me along with a time to come view the vehicle
We Make A Plan
I arrive at your location to come and view the vehicle. We will discuss the problems and I will check over the vehicle, offer up a diagnosis and whether parts will be required.
We can then discuss a suitable time to carry out the repairs and the all important costs involved.
For full restorations, this is time consuming so we will draw up a plan together over a cup of tea!
Vehicle Repairs Carried Out
This is the time when car or motorcycle repairs are carried out. This of course is weather permitting unless you have a garage or the vehicle is sheltered from the elements.
Once the repairs are completed, the vehicle is taken for test drive if needed. Once satisfied, the invoice is paid and the keys are returned to you.
