Hi I am Marc, Owner of Earl Classics
After a 30 year plus successful career in business, i have set Earlclassics up as a family business to allow me to follow my passion for classic japanese motorbikes of the 1970's amd 80's.
The aim of this business is to preserve these wonderful machines for the pleasures of the coming generations. We believe the bikes are for enjoying and riding not just showing and polishing, so aim to return them to as standard as economically possible, and to get them looking 1-2 years old, rather than so perfect that they are too good to ride ! We will usually have 25-30 or so bikes in stock at any one time.
My passion for bikes started when I got my first moped at 18, since then I became an RAC Instructor, toured down to the south of spain and had many bikes over the years nearly all of which i loved.
Bikes I have owned in order.
Puch Grand Prix - The First one
Honda CB100N - The dull one
Honda CB250RS - The one i fell off
Yamaha XJ550 - The one i toured on
Kawasaki GPz750R - Cheap 900R
Suzuki GSX1100F - The ugliest one
Honda Fireblade - The first race rep
Yamaha YZF750R - The stolen one
Honda Blackbird - The fastest one
Ducati Monster 600
Ducati Monster S4R - The best sounding
Suzuki Bandit 1100
Yamaha 1000 Fazer - Too plastic
Then after a 3 year break i bought my first classic a GT750B shown on the Home page, and my love for classics started there !
