Coronavirus Covid 19 Update

To all our customers, old and new

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 [...]

Accounts Clerk and administrator

Flitwick Motorcycles are looking for an experienced person to join us in our small but busy accounts department.

The successful applicant will be experienced in accounting procedures, with a proven record of work within a busy office. They will be able to work without supervision, be accurate and have attention to detail, and be a people person.

Experience with accounts purchase and sales ledger procedures is a must, and computer literacy is needed for this role. Training will be given in the accounts operating system that we work with.

Previous use of the Basic PAYE RTI tools would be an advantage, as payroll preparation would be part of duties.

A basic understanding of the use of office (word and excel) will be required.

The role may also include some telephone work, and assistance in the busy times to other sales departments time permitting.

This role is predominately full time, but hours [...]

This month saw changes to the MOT regulations and requirements for Motorcycle testing, and some of the changes may affect our existing or new customers moving forward.

Notable changes that we feel you should be aware of are as follows:

Number plates light, in working order are now a requirement. Without the Motorcycle will now fail.

Retro fit HID headlights are now an automatic Mot fail.

Indicators that are incorporated into the rear light are now a fail.

As always, if you have any concerns then please ask when booking your bike in, and we will do our best to advise you.

It is with regret that we are unable to take part in the advertised Sports touring demo weekend on the 11th and 12th May.

This is due to the lack of available  Yamaha stock machines to allocate for demo to make the experience worthwhile for you our valued clientele.

We do however have the following machines on our test fleet, and subject to available slots, and a suitable Driving licence/experience we are happy to arrange test rides on an individual Basis- just give Saul a call on 01525 712197 or email testride@flitwickmotorcycles.co.uk  with your contact details and we will ring you back.
