As specialist motorcycle solicitors we are privileged to be able to get to know some incredible people within the motorcycle community and one such person is the Chairman of the Manchester Triumph Owners Motorcycle Club, Max Smeed.
In the past couple of years we have had the pleasure of working alongside Max and the Manchester T.O.M.C.C. at several of their events, sharing our insight into the legal aspects of motorcycle ownership and in particular the ramifications and consequences that motorcyclists can face should they be involved in a motorcycle accident or road traffic collision.
Whilst we have been unable to meet with Max and the rest of the Manchester T.O.M.C.C., it hasn’t stopped Max from following his dream, a dream that may benefit many members of the local motorcycle community.
As the world ground to a halt for a few months when the pandemic tightened its grip and the country entered lockdown, Max took this as an opportunity to quit his job as a Senior Project Manager in the nuclear power industry and develop his brand new business – Max Smeed Motorcycle Restorations.
Max has always had a passion for classic motorcycles and in his 42 years as a motorcyclist, he has helped restore many British, Japanese, American and Italian motorbikes.
Speaking about his new business venture, Max said:
“I can handle anything from a simple service or repair to a full ground-up restoration of classic or modern machines. My aim is to help my fellow bikers get their rides roadworthy again”
“In recent weeks I have worked on a ’74 Triumph Trident, Suzuki GT380, 2012 Triumph Bonneville, ’72 Triumph Tiger TR6, ’79 Suzuki GS1000, 2011 Triumph Thunderbird 1700 and completed a ground-up restoration of my ’47 Matchless G3L.”
His late father had bought a brand new Matchless G3L in 1947 and regaled Max and his friends of his many stories. Hence an identical bike was always on Max’s ‘bucket list’ to own and restore. You can read more about this story in the current August 2020 edition of Classic Bike Magazine.
Everyone here at Thorneycroft Solicitors are delighted to see that our friend Max Smeed is continuing his great work within the motorcycle community by offering this great service.
We look forward to seeing his business develop and also continue to be able to work closely with him and his fellow members of the Manchester Triumph Owner’s Club in future.
