WE STARTED BACK IN 2005
Motorbike bits is a small business run by myself (Brendan) with help and support from friends and family. I spent 18 years working in industry as an Engineer and achieved a degree in business studies along the way.
From a child I have always been interested in anything involving engines, wheels and speed. So when the opportunity to move into the bike industry and become my own boss presented itself, it seemed like the right thing to do.
My first event was Newark Auto Jumble, selling a few items from a small stand. At this time I never imagined that I would find myself selling a huge range of products and exhibiting at major events throughout the country, as well as some events in Europe. I still enjoy the smaller events and seeing the faces that have become familiar as customers return to my stand year on year. I think consistently attending these shows is important as it gives my customers confidence in my business and reliability.
Combining bikes with my sense of adventure and love of travel has taken me to some amazing places. Off road across Kenya was a highlight and I’m hoping Vietnam might be next.
