Classic Bike Shop

Postby The Doctor » Thu Jul 09, 2009 10:44 pm

I want to set up a classic bike shop (online-only), selling memorobilia, old parts etc but cannot find anyone willing to supply me with an affiliate program or data feed?

Any ideas/contacts?

From my experience in selling old and new classic parts (for Mike), unless you devote 100% of your time to it, you wont make any ££. There are loads of places that deal spares n' stuff, and its very hard getting people to break their loyalty to cirtain suppliers.

Persoanlly, i wound'nt bother with it. :150

you can always send emails to the many companies that making parts and ask if they will supply on wholesale basis.

Andy Molner , and peter Williams may be worth contacting.

the bits i've made for myself and bits i've made to generate a bit of extra cash can be sold through the forum. Some of you will probably remember i'm making the levers for the Triumph 8" TLS brake plate (68 and later) which Foxy kindly lent me the samples for. They're very nearly done now, so when i get them back, i'll stick some pics up.

Can also produce copper rocker box and head gaskets (all Triumph twins and tripple RB's only), brackets, engine plates.. basically anything flat. :153 :220

Andy makes stainless parts for Norton up in the midlands he has some adverts in CB mag,

Peter Williams ex World champ riderdesigned the racing cam for Nortons Norm White sells them, but I think Pete will be happy for others to sell them.
