What you see on this site is just some of what I have managed to accumulate over many years. If you need a specific part, or you’re looking for a certain type of project, let me know. If I don’t have it, I may know someone who has.
Please make sure you include a part number. If you don’t know it, email me with a few images. I don’t have encyclopedic knowledge of every bike and part, so if you would like some help, please help me. Thanks
Let me know the following and I will do my best to help. When I go to collect a part for one of my bikes, the conversation invariably turns to their bike collection. In some cases, people ask if I want to buy one of their bikes (or projects). I usually only buy projects that I want to rebuild and keep. However, I make a mental note of what bikes might be available if someone asks for that type.
So, if you’re after a project, or a finished motorcycle, just let me know and I will do my best for you. I just need to know the following.
- Make and model of motorcycle
- Year (or decade).
- Condition you are prepared to consider (Pile of bits with some missing, complete project, oily rag runner, light cosmetic work)
- A budget (“I don’t know” doesn’t really help. Nor does “as cheap as possible”) Please let me know a realistic idea of what you think you are prepared to spend. It doesn’t always follow that you need to spend as much as you state.
Please use the form on this page or email me at “info at thetimingchest.com”. Many thanks. I will get back in touch.
