Motorcycles have always been our passion. Starting with stripped down old mopeds we scrambled around local fields until we fell off, ran out of petrol or the police turned up! We had great fun out-running a local mad dog turned crazy by buzzing 2-strokes, it growled and snap, it got close but never caught us. As a result of our adventures we honed our riding skills, we became expert at mad dog evasion, clattering over pot holes, avoiding trees (not always) and making the police laugh rather than shout at us. Happy days!
In those early years we learned a lot, how to ride and stay upright, how to keep our bikes going. We built a reputation for quick bikes, for tearing around the streets (we were teenagers!) at which time the bobbies stopped laughing and started chasing. Our escapades did earn us the odd fine but also many friends and their bikes to work on; some for road and some for track use.
So 30 years later (many of those years chasing careers and building bikes in our spare time) we've changed focus and established JAL (Motorcycle) Restorations Ltd. We offer motorcycle restoration and repair service to like minded motorcyclist, specializing in road and competition motorcycles built before 1989 BC (before computers) or occasionally a little later.
Recently "sympathetically" restored by us the Broad Yamaha TZ750 (No 8 in BP colours) and ex Dave Potter. Photographed at Mallory Park being chased by Tepi Lansivouri on the Ex works Suzuki TR750.
Our builds speak for themselves and are among the most photographed and always draw a crowd in the race paddock or outside your local.
