We are a CNC manufacturing company dedicated to high performance classic bikes for the road and race track.

I have inherited my love for racing Norton’s from my father John who bought his first Norton in the late 60’s
and is still enthusiastic as ever, he is currently in the process of rebuilding a 1956 350 Manx and a 1936 Inter.

Andrew, my brother, has enjoyed many years of racing success on Norton’s and still holds many hill climb records throughout Europe.

The Third generation of Bennett’s have started there motorcycling career’s racing with the National Hill Climb Association.
