ABOUT US


South Devon Classics was born out of a lifetime passion with motorcycles & motorcycling by me, Steve Smith. I have ridden, raced, thrashed, crashed, repaired & restored motorcycles of all shapes & sizes for over 40 years. I relocated to South Devon from Bedfordshire in December 2016 & after meeting some like minded local enthusiasts, realised that there was a gap in the market for an affordable restoration & quality motorcycle routine maintenance service.


I am able to offer a wide range of services from a basic service to a full motorcycle restoration, including full engine rebuilds, wiring harness manufacture & a spoke wheel rebuilding service. All work is carried out in house with only with the exception of cylinder rebores, crank rebuilding & fork rechroming which are carried out by highly skilled specialist engineering partners.


Over the years, I have been involved in preparing motorcycles for both modern & classic circuit racing in many different classes. Recently i have been building bikes for the Thundersport 500 Series where my son Sam competes very successfully on a bike built & prepared by me & now since relocating, am venturing into Moto X, Enduro & Greenlaning motorcycle preparation & servicing.
