TK Motorcycles was originally called TK Bike Breakers and was formed in 1984 by Tony Keele and was initially located in Beebys Yard, Burton Street Melton. The company was created due to Tony being a motorcycle enthusiast and he wanted to pass on/utilise his knowledge to help the people of Melton Mowbray and surrounding villages/towns.
TK Bike Breakers traded well for 7/8 years however as the company began to provide motorcycle services/repairs as well as parts supply, the decision was taken that a breakers yard combined with the current business name, was not the right image to sell the service side of the business. As such and at the same time as the local Police deciding to contract the salvage collections from accidents to one company, the decision was taken to change the name of the company to TK Motorcycles.
With the name changes came a new host of services including MOT’s, full motorcycle servicing and repairs alongside a small shop selling clothing and general accessories.
This continued until 2011 when Tony decided that it was time to improve the efficiency and locality of the business by moving into a new business unit that allowed the shop, MOT and servicing to be encompassed into one building. The transition occurred over the 2011 christmas period and the once plain industrial unit was then turned into a fully functional motorcycle MOT, sales and repair centre.
Since the move, business has increased and the image of the business is now much more professional.
