How do I commission/order a bike?


Please call directly or email us via the website.

We can either arrange to meet with you in person or discuss and finalise your requirements over the phone or email if you are outside of the UK or unable to travel.

How do I arrive at a final design concept for my bike?
 

We are more than happy to offer as much or as little advice as you wish towards your own specific concept or design.
Alternatively, you can give us a rough brief and we will produce an initial concept for you to review and we can refine the exact details from there.
Either way we guarantee a high quality and totally bespoke design

How long will the build take?
 

A build time line will always depend on the complexity of the build and also the state of our order book.
All of our builds are professionally project managed to guarantee that we meet your exact specification within the time line that we commit to at the outset of the build. We will always advise and stick to an agreed cost and delivery date at point of order. Subject that is to any later build specification changes that you might desire.

What work do you complete on a bike during a build?
 

Aside from the manufacture of bespoke components for your build all donor parts will be fully refurbished. In addition all wear parts will be fully replaced e.g. all bearings, bushes and seals. For example, all engines are totally stripped and rebuilt.
New brake linings, brake hoses, all oils, fluids and tyres will always be fitted.

 

Would I be able to specify the use of which brand components are used in a build?
 

We have been endorsed by the suppliers that you can see at the foot of our homepage and have used their products for many years with excellent results.
However, we are happy to build to your exact requirements in respect of items such as dampers and tyres etc. We are aware that everybody has preferences and after it’s ‘your bike’. 

 

What would be the cost of a commissioned build?
 

The cost of any build will be entirely dependent on the specification of the build. For example, number of cylinders, state of tune required, supply of the donor bike, condition of the donor bike and any number of specific features that you might wish to have incorporated in your bespoke build.
However, please feel free to contact us with your initial requirements and we will be pleased to give you a more specific build cost based on your requirements.


Do you build bikes for export?
 

Yes we do. We are happy to build bikes for export and will export globally.
We can advise of all shipping costs and delivery details before you place an order.
Shipping and insurance can be arranged by you or alternatively we can arrange everything for you. 

 

If I live outside of the EU will I have to pay import duties, custom taxes etc?
 

Yes, you are responsible for payments to your own Customs authorities for any import duties and/or handling charges that they may impose. We are unfortunately unable to assist in any way with these statutory charges within your Country.
We will produce a Customs Declaration when we ship you bike and this will detail the true invoice value for the total price of the bike.

 

Can I supply the donor bike?
 

We are always happy for customers to supply a base donor bike.
However, we would need to see and inspect your bike first prior to giving you a final price for your bespoke build.

 

Are your bikes road legal?
 

Yes. Every bike that we build will comply with current UK legislation and comes with a full MOT or a VOSA vehicle inspection report where required.

 

Are your bikes approved and registered for use in Countries other than the UK?
 

No. If you require any special features built in to your bike to comply with local legislation you should advise us as we finalise your build specification, for e.g. position of licence plate and special lighting requirements. 
Ultimately, when we build for non-UK use it is the responsibility of the buyer to ensure that local legislation is complied with.
 
Can you deliver the bike once it is completed?

 

Yes. We would be very happy to arrange delivery within the UK or shipping abroad, including delivery insurance at any time during the build process. We can add this to the build cost of your bike or alternatively invoice you separately for this service.
 
How do I pay for a commissioned build?

 

We prefer receiving bank transfers for all build payments.
For all bespoke builds (commissions) once we have agreed and finalised your bespoke design we would require a 30% non-refundable deposit at point of order and would not commence work with having received this.
At mid-point of the build we would require a further 40% with the final 30% being paid on final sign off and handover of the bike to you

 

Do you offer any after-sales service?
 

Yes we do. In fact we would always encourage you to stay in touch with us.
We will have built your bike and will know it intimately and will therefore be best placed to service and maintain it for you.

 

How do I obtain spare parts for my bike once purchased?
 

Every bike that we build is issued with its own unique specification and service sheet created specifically for your bike detailing maintenance requirements, settings and adjustments as well as a full technical specification and listing of standard parts and service items
In addition your bike will also be issued with an authenticity certificate and a unique build number.

 

Will my build be a real one off, will it be unique?
 

Yes. We will never build two absolutely identical bikes. 

 

Do you offer any sort of warranty on bespoke builds?
 

Yes. We provide a (TBC) month warranty on all builds, subject to usage and the bike being serviced by us during the warranty period. A terms and conditions of use will be issued to you on handover of the completed build detailing the scope of the warranty.

 

Can I purchase separately, special components used in your builds?
 

Yes you can. Please see our Special Components section for our range of bespoke products.
If what you need is not available please contact us via our Contact page and we will be happy to see if we can help you.

 

Can I purchase EBM merchandise?
 

Yes. Please see our shop section where you will find a full range of merchandise.
