Welcome to the New Year.


Custom bike

Welcome to the New Year we hope that our customers are well and rested looking forward to what 2017 has to offer. As we look back at 2016 – it was busy for us but not in way we had expected.

On a few occasions we failed to keep up with the demand and thank those that were caught up in it for their patience. For the first time we had to close the workshop to all work, due to the unprecedented heat during the summer. Not that many of us remember it now with all the grey, rain and cold.

We have noticed that we are seeing more older bike plastic for repair. These have proved to be more challenging to repair technically speaking because of their age. Brought back some fond memories though!. One of the jobs in particular comes to mind which, came in the form of a rare battery cover from a classic Suzuki. As always we work with our customers to get the best possible out come.

I hate shopping

We are happy to talk to anybody that has a problem with broken plastic. It is part of our service to inform not just sell our ability to repair. It is our way of giving something back. Maybe you will remember us in the future when it comes to that job that does need our expertise.

We have published a guide on how to repair plastic properly using plastic welding which is available from blurb and from time to time we run plastic welding courses. (At the time of writing we have no planed dates for these courses.)

With the festive period over it is back to work as usual. I should say it is good to be back, but to be honest we have not stopped, as there is now a new web site and a twitter feed for Plasweld.

Best wishes for the New year.

Celebrating it’s 75th year with a Bookazine.


Ace Cafe Bookazine – a 75th anniversary special!

Think of black leather jackets, quiffs, sideburns and rockers and the Ace Cafe is at the heart of defining UK motorcycle culture.

This glorious 132 page bookazine celebrates 75 years of Britain’s most historic motorcycle meeting place – the Ace Cafe in London.

From high-speed thrills to the birth of an entire culture, the Ace Cafe bookazine takes us from the ton-up boys getting their speed kicks on the road, the Mods versus Rockers, right to the present day with the motorbikes and people that are keeping the Ace Cafe legend alive today. It’s a must read for all!

Would make a great Gift!
