Following on from our closure on the 26th March, we are now able to start our gradual return to work.
With effect from the evening of the 15TH May our online sales store, FLITWICKMOTORCYCLESEXPRESS.COM and our eBay store FMCEXPRESS will be up and running again to allow online purchasing.

Following on from the Prime Ministers direction on the 23rd March 2020 our retail shop is closed until we can safely reopen. This is to ensure the safety of our team, and you our most valued customers.
We are currently contacting all clients that have Mots or work booked into our workshop, by telephone or email where possible, as government guidelines are that Garages can remain open, but as our retail area is not completely separated from the Workshop the logistics are still under discussion and review. If you arrive today for a workshop appointment (24th March 2020) when entering await a member of staff for directions before walking through the shop.
Please assist us by not entering the shop unless you have an MOT or workshop work booked in today, as our retail section is closed.

As most of our followers are aware, we have been involved in Motorcycle road racing for many years. We have had some good times, and bad. Steve has built many a bike for the challenging Isle of Man TT course,and other road races from modern to classic, and as a Team Flitwick have had much success over the years. Chris Swallow joined our Team last year, riding one of our Enfield Classic 500 machines, and rode to a fine 4th in the Senior Classic TT. He joined us at Eastern Creek Australia and rode our little Enfield to five outright wins from five starts, in mostly torrential rain conditions. This year he once again joined our Team to ride the Enfield at the Classic TT. Despite only 3.5 laps of practice in a very wet practice week, he put in the 5th fastest lap, just quietly getting on with it.. The Race day was dry, and he lined [...]
