In the beautiful county of West Sussex and very close to the site of RAF Tangmere, now a military & aviation museum made famous by the legendary Group Captain Douglas Bader, the legless fighter ace who commanded the Tangmere wing of Fighter Command, Foundry motorcycle host “hands on” workshops run by Tom, owner of Foundry Motorcycle, specifically aimed at custom and classic motorcycles.
The aim is to teach participants not only how to carry out the all-important, routine safety checks but also how to perform basic service procedures.
Tom says ‘There will be no white board, no speeches, no name badges and no homework. Just you, your bike and the use of the workshop’. And of course, you get Tom’s undivided attention along with getting your hands dirty, and unlimited coffee.
During the workshop you’ll be assisted in checking and changing your oil and filters, tension chains and belts and how to give your brake system a good going over. The workshop also focuses on model specific details and as you’ll be in a bespoke bike building workshop it would be rude not to discuss customisation options.
Tom added ‘Not so basic rations and refreshments will be provided and if time allows we’ll play with some more entertaining tools, but before you come along, we will need you to supply details of your bike or pop in for a quick reccie before the event to enable us to gather relevant parts’.
Although the workshop obviously has a serious element to it, gaining of some valuable motorcycle knowledge, it’s also meant to be enjoyable as it’s set in an interesting and social environment.
If you’d like to register your interest in taking part, get in touch with Tom.
