Hello and welcome to Ted’s Shed. Here you will find many of the services required to help you with your own restoration project and if I can’t help you I’ll probably know somebody that will.

My passion for motorcycles was born at a very early age, as my parents would take the family camping on a farm somewhere in Suffolk, where the farm owner had a pair of old BSA 1000cc twins, and he would always ensure one of them was up and running in readiness for our visits. Much to my mother’s despair dad would load up two of his three son’s (the third was still in a pram) and take us for a tour of the farm, my brother and I would hang on for dear life, that’s me on the back!

 

 
 

I served my apprenticeship at “Moorgreen Metal Industries” as a toolmaker/turner producing engine components for the Olympus and Tyne Rolls Royce engines. In the 80’s I owned a Motorcycle shop in Southampton specializing in spares and repairs for Triumph Norton and BSA motorcycles.

I’ve owned a number of successful engineering orientated businesses since then and now find myself in the very fortunate position of working with classic motorcycles and their owners.

Throughout this website you will find examples of my work and services, I’m always happy to provide advice should you chose to undertake work yourself and needless to say the kettles always on.
