Open the door to Bernie’s Bike Shed

One of our most valued customers has had a passion for German motorcycles for over fifty years.  Bernie has his own website/personal blog, “Bernie’s Bike Shed”, which includes a lot of interesting information and pictures of post-war German motorcycles (as well as some British machines). We are sure that you will find this as enjoyable and fascinating as we do – you will find a link to his site on our “Links to the Past” page.
