A small family run business based in St Rémy de Provence in the South of France, we are passionate about classic motorcycles and have found them to be an excellent means of exploring this beautiful part of the world. Our stable of classic bikes has been specifically
selected for suitability for our tours which have been running since 2004, and contains bikes ranging from the 1950s to the mid 1980s with an interesting mix of single, twin and four cylinder machines that will provide something to suit everyone.
In 2008 we entered into the world of sidecars, Ural sidecars in particular , and have fallen in love with the quirkiness of these machines too. We pride ourselves on being one of the top European Ural distributers (N° 1 in 2014) providing not only sales and servicing but also offering sidecar tuition and sidecar rental. We know sidecars aren’t everyone’s cup of tea , but a day of sidecar school in the sunshine of Provence can’t help but put a big smile on your face.
Having lived in southern France since 2000 it’s true our command of the French language is not as good as it should be – too much time mixing with anglophone clients and listening to English radio, but we get by and we can now translate the menus at the restaurant for you without mixing up the dorade and the daube ! However , what is certain , our knowledge of the region is exceptional and you can be sure of an unforgettable experience when you visit Classic Bike Esprit. As one of our French clients said
” I can’t believe I have just discovered new places in my own neighbourhood, thanks to an Englishman (actually he’s Welsh, but let’s not be picky) on a British motorcycle”!
Only at Classic Bike Esprit will you find Brits selling and renting English, Russian and Indian (don’t not forget our Royal Enfields and LMLs) motorcycles in the south of France . Life can be full of surprises, and for us it is certainly never dull.
If we could “bottle” the experience of riding classic bikes and sidecars in Provence and send it to you, we would. But then again why not come and experience it directly yourselves!
