 About BS Bikes

BS Bikes started life many moons ago in Bobs garage as BS Bike Spares, with Bob doing spares and repairs. 3 years later he bought the current premises, which has been a bike shop since 1974 with franchises from BMW, Honda, Suzuki, Enfield, Puch and even Moto-Roma! It was very run down when it first became BS Bikes and didn't have a franchise, Bob worked on building the business with repairs, MOT's and used bikes until he got the Triumph franchise in 2000. Since then the business has gone from strength to strength and will shorlty be moving into a new, larger premesis to carry on this growth and take us to the next level.

 Bob Sheldon - Proprieter

Bob retired from the coal industry in 1992 due to ill health and started his bike business. He's had bikes since he was 11 and is the current proud owner of several classic bikes - including an SS80 Brough Superior - and several famous bikes - inlcuding a Speed Triple from Mission: Impossible 2 and TT Winner Bruce Ansteys Daytona 600 practice bike. These days he mostly spends his time behind the mountain of paperwork that he calls his desk.

 Sam Harrison - Admin & Clothing

Sam came to us in 2006 to whip us lads into shape and bring some organisation to the chaos - she also makes us lunch on fridays! She is threatening to take her bike test so be careful - although she's never crashed into anything moving.

 Martin "Tiko" Teece - Sales Manager

Tiko is like a stick of rock - cut him in half and you will see 'Triumph' written through him. He's had around 12 Triumphs since he started riding in 1978, and still has the Bonneville that he bought new in '79 (and crashed in '09). He was previously clothing manager in a local bike accessory shop before he left to be a locksmith for 12 months before we rescued him.

 Colin Challinor - Workshop Controller & Parts & I.T. & Marketing & ........

Colin came to us 5 years ago, initially as a parts man but his job description has now grown to include everything except cleaning the toilet! He can usually be found running around with a 'to-do' list longer than his hair - which really is saying something in his case. Now rides a Street Triple R after breaking lots of piggy banks.

 Mark "Bubbs" Rogers - Cheif Technician & MOT Tester

Bubbs has been with Bob since the very beginning, he must be a real glutton for punishment! As you'd expect, he is fully Triumph trained and knows them inside out. He's got 4 bikes, including a TL1000S that owes him way too much to mention even though front tyre's tend to last him a rather long time and a rattly new GSXR1000.

 Andy Shaw - Technician, MOT Tester & Recovery

Andy bought a bike from us a few years ago and liked it so much he came to work for us - one day we might even pay him! He's had bikes since he was 14 and currently owns 2 Triumphs and is a glutton for Harleys, Buells and other weird stuff. He's Triumph trained and also our resident Harley and cruiser specialist.

 Steve Baggaley - Technician & MOT Tester

Steve came to work for us after doing an apprentiship with a Vauxhall dealer, we only found out after he started with us that this didn't get much further than sweeping the floors. Luckily, he is now Triumph & MOT trained and is easily persuaded to dress to impress! He currently rides a Buell XB12S and doesn't like it when we say that it belongs in a field.

 Pete Knipe - Technician & MOT Tester

Another highly trained Triumph technician & MOT tester, Pete rounds out our workshop team. He's also our resident off-roader and always manages to find new and ingenious ways to hurt himself. He doesn't much like it when we point out that he looks like a meercat.
