Adam had a surprise visit from Howie at the shop today on his beautiful Harris Magnum II – affectionately named Horace.  It was great to see it finally running after being off the road for 15 years or more.  Its certainly made Adam even more keen to get his Harris Magnum III back on the road however there’s quite a lot of work to be done….

The Lincoln Flume

The Flume

When: Sunday 12th July 2015

Where: Flaxengate, Lincoln

Flaxengate-water-slide - Lincoln Flume 2015

The Lincoln Flume is based on a concept called Park and Slide developed by artist Luke Jerram. It is described as:

“a simple architectural intervention and a playful response to the urban landscape”

The location for the Lincoln Flume water slide has been selected and Flaxengate is the venue of choice for the 90m long slip and slide!

Ticket holders will slide down a 90m long tarpaulin slide, dowsed with soapy water on an inflatable li-lo and the gradient of Flaxengate will provide an exhilarating ride generating expected speeds of over 11mph. There are car parks nearby and plenty of room for spectators.

We will be based at Café Portico along with Sim and our joint side project – our very own wood fired pizza oven housed inside an authentic Italian Piaggio Ape!

Come and join in with the fun and get a slice of the action – we look forward to see you there 🙂

The Watson’s Do Donington!

Watsons Ducati Track Day Doddington Pk May 2015


A big thank you goes to our friends and customers Mr & Mrs Watson for doing a bit of advertising for V Duo Motorcycles. They had a fab day at the Ducati Track Day held at Donington Park this week where their 999S was able to stretch her legs.  We re-home this beautiful 999S with the Watson’s back in July of last year – she’s a looker alright!

We’re looking for more stock – all makes and models are considered!

We’re looking for good clean motorcycles so give us a call for a valuation on

01522 527848 or 07977521115 or go to our valuation form here on our website.

We’ve just taken in this head turner…..2009 Honda CB1000R

Honda CB1000R-1

It’s in excellent condition with 9,250 miles on the clock and service history.  It further benefits from a HISS alarm system, BOS exhaust, R&G tail tidy and a tinted screen.  This unusual colour scheme really suits it’s styling.

The CB1000R is wonderfully styled with a beautiful single sided swingarm, flash LCD clocks and both paintwork and metal finishes are of excellent quality.  The suspension provides feel and comfort while the engine provides suitable torque and midrange.  This is a real head turner of a bike.


Happy New Year!

Christmas 2014











We had a lovely break over for the holidays and enjoyed some quality family time.  It was great to have some snow, even if it was a day late and came along Boxing Day evening.

New Year was celebrated with good friends at Cafe Portico in Lincoln enjoying great food cooked by Sim and entertainment provided by UK folk musicians The Fyreflies.

New Year 2014







So here we are in 2015 and after selling so many bikes in November/December of last year our showroom stock of pre-owned motorcycles is running a little low so remember if you’re thinking about selling your bike please get in touch.

Lets hope its a great year for us all 🙂

Another Busy Week

The last 7 days have been very busy here at V Duo Motorcycles.

Last Sunday we took a trip down to Cornwall delivering the Kawasaki ER5 to it’s new owner – we didn’t realise there’d be a short ferry crossing to Torpoint – Bonus!

Torpoint Ferry


We’ve got an MV Agusta F4 1000 stripped on the bench receiving a major service after completing work on a Ducati 900ss Final Edition. We’re delivering this back to the customer who’s really excited to see what we’ve done.  A major service has been completed, some paint work has also been done as well as a full showroom standard valet – it looks stunning.

We’ve sold the orange Kawasaki Z1000 this week.  Its been through the workshop and is ready to be delivered to it’s new home tomorrow down in Surrey.

To make it a hat trick, we’ve also had a customer secure the Aprilia Shiver!  Needless to say stock’s running a little low so don’t forget, if you have a good clean motorcycle you want to sell give us a call 🙂

New Stock Has Arrived!

Can’t believe its October already.  How time flies when you’re busy and busy we are.  We’ve just finished preparing a new machine for the showroom – a Kawasaki ER5

The ER5 design was based on the GPZ500.  It’s a straightforward middleweight commuter and a cheap workhorse.  Great around town, this machine is an ideal commuter being economical to run and boasting good rider comfort – a good all year round bike if it’s looked after.

This is 2006/56 registration bike it is a good example of the ER5 with very low mileage (6,074 miles) and service history.  New tyres have been fitted, a new MOT will be supplied and it’ll be serviced to the highest standard at point of sale.

Take a closer look on our Bikes For Sale page!

What A Week…and its only Tuesday!

Well its only Tuesday and the workshop is busy busy!

We have a Kawasaki ZX6 in for a pair of new tyres, A Ducati S4RS in for a service and a rear shock rebuild as well as a Ducati 996 which is in for a big service before a trip abroad: new chain and sprockets, belts and the works!

We’ve also collected a very nice Ducati 748 which will be prepared and hopefully available in our showroom by the weekend…keep an eye on our Bikes For Sale page for details…she’s a beauty inside and out!
