Classic Bike Stables

CLASSIC JAPANESE MOTORCYCLE RESTORATION, REPAIR & SERVICE GARAGE.​

Old School Ways

My Name is Tony McGuire, I am sole owner of Classic Bike Stables in Bridlington, although only established in 2013 i have approximately 45 years experience of owning, riding and working withmotorcycles.


Early Years

I learnt at a very early age the basic skills needed to maintain a motorcycle having a father and 2 older brothers to show me the way, i went through school daydreaming about motorcycles, in my pre teenage and early teenage years whilst most lads my age were out playing football i was riding around the local field on an assortment of field bikes, fast forward to 1977 when I left school at the age of 16 and hit the road with my Texaco Heron styled suzuki AP50 !  and was lucky enough to get a job at the local Honda, Garelli, Malaguti, Puch & Suzuki dealer, at 17 I was building brand new motorcycles from the crate and also learnt all aspects of the motorcycle trade. Ever since then i have always owned and repaired motorcycles, never once having a break from them, I couldnt, they were in my blood....forever.

A Life Long Process

 

Since those early days i have fully restored countless motorcycles and built many specials which have won show trophys throughout the years. 

my main passion and expertise is 60's, 70's and 80's japanese bikes, especially 2 strokes, altho im not adverse to working on some other motorcycles regardless of age, make or model..including servicing some of the more modern bikes ,  in the past i have personally owned and worked on a variety of Japanese motorcycles.

So in april 2013 I decide to give up my secure full time job and follow my heart and start up my own business Classic Bike Stables.
