Gary BatesFounder & Owner
Started messing about with scooters at the age of about 13 led on by his notorious brother. Bought his first moped (a Raleigh runabout) for £15, got it roadworthy and then sold it for £25. Progressed to a Honda graduate moped, paying £35, rebuilt the engine during the 11 months of ownership and after a coat of silver hammerite on the exhaust sold it for £49! Maybe this is where he gets his TR dealing skills from - or is it the fact that his great great grandfather was a horse trader- who knows? A real petrol head, owns amongst other cars a TR3a and a TR5 which are used regularly. Other hobbies include hill walking, cycling, circuit training, off road motor biking and scuba diving. Will generally have ago at anything especially if it looks dangerous or means that you might get hurt. Lives with his wife Leanne, and one of their sons. the other three have flown the nest.
