tomboy_a_bit – Francis Barnett Feature – January 2021

Back in 2019, we shot with Deimante aka @tomboy_a_bit at Bentwaters. Deimante is a die-hard motorbike fanatic and we couldn’t think of anyone more experienced than her to test out our beloved trial bike.

Deimante produced this video seen below where she talks about the interesting history of the bike and the quirks of riding it. From that day, we gathered plenty of photos and videos, some of which you’ll see on our website and other bits you can find on Deimante’s social media, so keep an eye out!

This charming bike is up for sale with us and you can check it out here.

tomboy_a_bit – October 2020

Ahead of the Live Draw tonight, our biker buddy tomboy_a_bit shared this cool picture of herself on our 1963 BSA Trials Bike.

There’s now only a couple of hours to go before we finally find out who the lucky winner is. This bike is great fun, easy to ride and a firm biker classic.

Even though tomboy_a_bit is new to the world of classic motorbikes, she too couldn’t help fall in love with them; “It’s got so much character!” She said about our BSA, “I can’t wait to ride another classic bike soon.”

Make sure you tune in to watch the Live Draw tonight at 7pm over on our Facebook page.

If you want to be involved in the action, check out our current competition line up to see what other cars and bikes we have up for grabs.

“Brand New In Box” Motorbike

It’s not often we see the term ‘brand new, still in box’ when it comes to classic motorcycles. But unbelievably, this 1977 British-built motorbike is still in it’s original shipping crate some 43 years later.

The Norton Commando was shipped to a customer in Belgium who kept it in it’s original box until the time they decided to part with it. It’s since been put up for auction and is estimated to bring in approximately £20,000-£30,000.

Although we don’t know the reasons why the owner decided never to unbox this beauty, we see it time and time again where cars and bikes that are shipped overseas don’t end up getting claimed. Usually because of import taxes and other fees, it’s an expensive game!

We love classic bikes here at Bridge, so much so we’re currently running a competition for one incredibly lucky winner to become the new owner of our fantastic 1963 BSA Trials bike. Head to the Bridge Classic Cars Competitions website to enter.

On your bike!

Project Cafe Racer

The exciting Suzuki GSX 400T Cafe Racer project continues! We’ve stripped down the bike and are assessing which parts will be modified, which parts will be replaced and which parts will be surplus to requirements. We’ve had the engine running again and it looks to be in fairly good condition. Most of the work required on the bike will be cosmetic to fit it’s new, tougher Cafe Racer look. The next steps will see Paul, our motorcycle expert at Bridge Classic Cars Refurbishing parts that will be re-installed onto the motorcycle.
