Be careful of this one

Post by sherpatensing »

Just in case any of you are into classic bikes, here's one to watch. Despite being banned, he still operates under the cover of his son, who allegedly runs the business.

Wicky, interesting those two 'clubs'. I have a 1952 AJS 18S and a 1961 Greeves 24MCS that I used in Pre 65 MX back in the mid 80's. I've had the Greeves for 44years..!

Here's the Greeves page on the Pre65 Motocross site > https://www.pre65.co.uk/index.php/greeves

I've never ridden anything apart from Japanese road bikes so it's all new to me - I do have a promise of a go on one ( I think Greeves) next year which I look forward to.

Hello sherpatensing

Could you please remove this Post as its affecting my business (we sell classic bikes LTD).

Unfortunately my dad did go bust due to a messy divorce and bipolar disorder.

He isn't part of my business and would greatly appreciate it if you could remove this.

Thank you for your understanding.

Kind regards

Josh

So I don't know you at all Josh. However if I am not mistaken you have had a direct link to a dodgy business?

I don't see why a post like this would be removed. To be honest a reputation was obviously damaged. It is up to the reputation holder to improve that reputation.

The above is not snalder in any way. There is only a fact presented.

Just my opinion, for what it's worth, which is probably Very little.
If you don't try you never know if you can do it.

I think I'd have started a completely new business not connected in any way to the original one.
Did any of the affected customers of the insolvency get any of their money back?

It must be so annoying when someone posts and bumps it back under everyone's nose again.
Sorry about that.
