WELCOME TO OUR ON-LINE TRITON AND CAFE RACER PARTS SHOP

WELCOME TO OUR ON-LINE TRITON AND CAFE RACER PARTS SHOP



We have up-dated the website and have given it a new, cleaner look. We hope you like it.

Chris Knight Motorcycles is an on-line motorcycle parts shop with an extensive range of quality spare parts and accessories for British classic motorcycles. When we started - 15 years ago, we tried to stock as much as possible for the unit contruction Triumphs, Norton Dominator, Atlas, 650 and Commando and some of the A50 and A65 BSAs.

Over the course of the last year or so, we have have started to change the stock we carry. We still have a wide range of parts for the above mentioned motorcycles, but have started to concentrate on a range of really good quality, batch produced parts, mainly from England, for the Trition and Cafe Racers. We search for good original parts made by people like John Tickle, Paul Dunstall and Eddie Dow. We are the sole distributors for Dresda Triton parts.

The on-line shop will start to change over the next few months to reflect these changes. Tell us what you think about the new range or whether you can suggest any additions and we will try to source it.

The website has been designed to be really easy to use. Parts are listed under assembly headings - just like the parts books! You can also search by description or by part number.


We have added a Blog to the site so you can make your own comments. In this new Blog section we will feature the new products we have for sale as well as let you know about products back in stock.

Hi...
Just wanted to say... I'm impressed!
The handlebars I ordered yesterday were in my hands by 10 o'clock this
morning. Thank you very much. This was my first purchase from you but I
suspect it won't be my last.
Best regards
