Flitwick Motorcycles Bedfordshire UK Triumph and Yamaha dealers
 

Meet the Team

When Steve and Carole Linsdell opened the doors of Flitwick Motorcycles in 1984, they had one aim- to build a Friendly approachable Motorcycle retail outlet, concentrating on old fashioned Customer care.

The company was started at the start of a recession period, and staffing consisted of just Steve, Carole and one part time mechanic.

Originally selling lawnmowers alongside Yamaha, MZ and simson Motorcycles, after two years the mowers were put out to grass, and the business evolved into what you see today.

Five of the team you see below have been with us since year four, and all of us truly understand what it takes to give a service that stands out from the crowd.

We are rated in the top 10% of motorcycle Yamaha dealers- as scored by you our customers, and in 2010 were proud to hold the Yamaha UK master of customer care- your satisfaction is our remit.

Steve Linsdell, co- owner.

Specialising in all things workshop. Steve is well renowned in the Motorcycle industry for his Engineering and tuning skills. He has built and prepared many race machines of note over the years, including the Locktite Yamahas of the 90's and his own GTS racer- famously used on the challenging Isle of Man TT circuit. Most famous for his exploits on Enfields, he turned the brand into one to be reckoned with- currently running the fastest racing enfield ever on the TT circuit, and the fastest british push rod single on the challenging Manx course His love of building unusual race machines and attention to detail is second to none- you can be sure that if theres an engine problem to be solved, he's your Man.

 

Carole Linsdell, co- owner.

Carole keeps the office running efficiently, with the help of Pam and Barbara. She can also often be seen on the shop floor assisting in the Bike sales, parts and clothing department, releasing bikes to their new owners, arranging finance, and even on the Service reception, and will always make you a cuppa....
