Proper bike shops still exist
Most people in England agree that the country's going down the shitter. But if you look hard, there are still corners of the Old Dart that thankfully haven't been ruined by unchecked immigration and nannying politicians. My parents retired from London to a sleepy village near Thame, where pre-eminent Velocette specialists RF Seymour have been located for as long as anyone can remember. Not all motorcycle shops have turned into boutiques, and this one remains unimpressed by passing trends or any pressure to get 'up to date'. Want your bike rebuilt by a man in a white coat? Come here. My brother took these evocative photos.
