Purple Helmet Motorbikes

Serving UK & Europe

My business

Hi, I have set up Purple Helmet Motorbikes or PHM for short, as an extension of my hobby over many years of buying, trying..... wanting a change and thus - selling, motorbikes (and sports cars). I have always been fanatical about cleaning (these days referred to as detailing!) and enjoy bringing anything I own up to as near as new condition as possible. Consequently anything I sell will be in superb condition. I try to only buy what I like both to look at and to ride and in excellent condition with low mileage full service history and low ownership if at all possible. I also only buy from people I like and give me confidence they have cherished their motorbike and perhaps more importantly are "mechanically sympathetic" like myself, i.e... no revving the hell out of the engine from cold start, no tyres that look like Valentino Rossi has been racing against Marc Marquez on it, no road rash and definitely with no "bling". And of course regular servicing. I am a sole trader whose other interest was owning a FLORIST shop - recently handed on! (yep - I know, a very common "my other job is"...not!) and I can deliver within a 100 mile radius at a reasonable cost. So all in all I aim to have SUPERB motorbikes, be really genuine, helpful and sincere, and enjoy the world of motorbiking before I am too old.

below are bikes currently for sale & recently sold

My philosophy is simple:       Truth & Time = Trust

I normally only have 3-4 bikes available at any one time and try to be very selective so no-one wastes their time coming to look.  Viewings are by appointment so please call me FREE on 0800 772 0989 or email me: purplehelmetmotorbikes@gmail.com
Thanks for looking :D

Sell your pride & joy the painless way with Sale or Return (S.O.R.)


If your motorcycle fits in with what I sell (excellent examples with full history), I would be very interested in selling yours,



I’m proud of my enviable reputation for offering for sale, beautifully detailed & presented low mileage desirable motorbikes.

So how does this work?

Well the whole process is designed to make it as simple as possible for the owner. Firstly, you send me the details of your motorbike (form below).  If we come to an agreement then I can arrange collection or take delivery of your bike and away we go.


Is the bike secured safely?

Yes it is in my personal  storage facility and I have insurance cover up to a value of £15,000 per bike.


So why would customers buy a motorbike from me rather than yourself?


I have built up a reputation over 4 years of selling the best examples. Customers know all bikes are properly presented, fully checked over and accurately described. I can deliver bikes. I advertise in all the right places, so your bike gets the worldwide exposure it deserves.


What if you can’t sell the motorbike for what we have agreed?


In the unlikely event of this happening you are free to collect the bike & all I would ask is to cover the cost of my detailing hours.


How much does it cost?


£750 (no VAT) which I believe on average, the price is enhanced by just through proper presentation & marketing.
