Well it looks like the shop will open in December after all !
No ‘Black Friday’, but you are most welcome to come and negociate a deal on any bike,or to chat about a custom build. Lead times at this time of year shrink from 1-3 months, to 1-3 weeks.
The ‘showroom is viewable tho not finished..
The same goes for restoration, repainting and re-chroming etc..
Its also a good time to get things looked at/serviced before the winter finds out your bikes weaknesses. Surely not the time of year to breakdown.
Here is a photo of Raybel this time last year in dry dock at ‘Maylandsea’ essex.
And the ‘showroom’;
See you soon!
In order to maintain my sanity over the coming months, I am afraid I will have to close the shop until the new year.
‘Raybel ‘has spoken and in order to continue her preservation and restoration I must act.
Keeping the shop open would mean I would have to work seven day weeks, and although I have become accustomed to six and a half day weeks, I found I do look forward to the occasional half day off.
I believe it is all for the greater good, we have come a long way this year, and we are hoping next year to see a ‘sea change’ in Raybel’s fortunes.
I shall continue work ‘behind the scenes’ finishing the showroom downstairs and gathering more exotic stock.
I do apologise for the inconvenience this may cause.
Rob and Raybel.
Shop hours ARE CHANGING .
I will try to maintain Saturday opening 10 – 6 pm, and of course by appointment. Please email or call to make sure I am here. I will infact mostly be here Tues to Sat , so do call for sales and servicing.
