MP Motorcycles basically evolved from a childhood surrounded by motorbikes ...  three older brothers and living on a farm in the central west of NSW ensured we were all riding bikes at an early age.   Having owned many Japanese motorcycles over the last 30 years we found we could import classic motorcycles out of Japan that have become very hard to find.   Importing an old Yamaha SR500 and going through the compliance and registration was a road that led my brother Pete and I to start a Motor Dealership specialising in popular classic Japanese bikes and custom parts.


The old phrase ...  "Find a job you love and you'll never work a day in your life"...       is just a little closer with a busy carwash company (CTSI) in one corner of my warehouse and a custom motorcycle shop in the other. 

Now I need to explain to my wife why I need more than one bike !!


To quote from our website:

"MP Motorcycles was formed in 2010 from decades of messing around on Japanese bikes.   Two brothers who have experienced the evolution of Japanese dirt and road bikes in the 70's and 80's decided to pay tribute to the art of Japanese cafe custom's. Throw in Triumph's for a touch of the classic British racer and you get MP Motorcycles.     Situated in country NSW we can arrange shipping anywhere in Australia and our online store is operating 24/7 offering a growing list of custom Japanese bike parts"
