Business Description
Hilton Smythe welcomes to the market GMEC - Think motorcycles think GMEC.

This fast growing and multi-faceted family concern was started by our clients around 7 years ago and is expanding at a phenomenal rate. We are informed that turnover has increased rapidly in the past 12 months.

Our clients are now reluctantly selling for family reasons.

This very successful family business offers all aspects of motorcycle repairs and sales including Class 1 and 2 MOTS, servicing, new and second-hand motorcycle sales plus accessories and helmets.

The sale also includes a good sized busy café with a cinema screen system within the business. Every Wednesday night there is a biker’s night when the place can be completely filled. The business has a great reputation with many loyal and repeat customers and bikers travelling from far and wide.

The business will continue to grow generically with capacity to grow further with extra staff, longer hours and Sunday openings (which has been requested by several biker clubs) and possibly obtaining an alcohol licence for the meets.

This is a fantastic opportunity for a new owner to buy and develop this already very successful, multi-faceted, well respected and established business. The GMEC logo and brand are trademarked, opening up huge potential in branded clothing sales.
