Gotta go to Gotoya Motor Works!

After Brat it was back on the subway and a fair walk out to meet Hiroki at Gotoya Motor Works. Although he owns and has built other marques, he specialises in all things Royal Enfield. From custom bobbers and scramblers to engine work and servicing on standard machines. While I was there he was finishing off a Hitchcock's big bore conversion and twin plug head. It's not just about the Indian models either, he's got a lovely '48 model G sat in the window. He also showed me the back room which was crammed full of bikes including his show winning Triumph chop, an immaculate Kawasaki W1 and an A10 with a blown engine awaiting parts. For someone who appears so young he certainly knows his stuff, such a friendly fella too, both him and his mate made me feel really welcome! Again, well worth dropping in if you're in the neighbourhood.

  1. Thanks for sharing these great photos with a visit to this shop. It must be wonderful to see the younger generation keeping the work going and hitting him with some of your knowledge. Have a great day.
