If Carlsberg did bike MOT’s – they’d feature a comfy leather sofa, refreshments, bike books, magazines and a TV – plus an amazing view of some seriously desirable restoration projects to lust over while your pride and joy has its annual check-up – oh well, we can dream! Unless that is if you happen to be fortunate enough to live near Saffron Walden in Essex – and more specifically to the Motorcycle Restoration Company in Wendons Ambo where this particular dream is very much a reality.
Explaining the recent addition to their workshop, owner Chris Daniels, says:
“We wanted to give customers an area where they can sit and watch, chat or read – in comfort – while their MOTs are being done. We wanted a hard-wearing floor that’s easy to install and keep clean – so we chose DURAMAT Checker Plate tiles.”
You’ll notice the great looking Duramat Checker Plate interlocking floor tiles – made entirely from recycled PVC – in the photos of this awesome MOT location, you might also spot the rather scuffed Texport leathers.
While we’re fairly sure that these particular scuffs didn’t come from crawling or laying around on the workshop’s concrete floor(!) – it’s a reasonable analogy to compare the effect of the road on leathers to the effect of the often rough, cold and uncomfortable surface of a concrete garage or workshop floor on knees and elbows when working on bikes at floor level – a level of discomfort that DURAMAT’s Garage Floor Tiles are designed to overcome!
Whether your bike needs a repair, servicing, parts, a full restoration or just an MOT – visit the Motorcycle Restoration Company’s website at motorcyclerestorationcompany.com – where you’ll also find some great photos of their stunning restorations.
