DOWN AND OUT CAFÉ RACERS
1Based on the outskirts of Sheffield, Down and Out have grown in three years to be one of the UK’S biggest custom bike builders. They create around 50 machines a year, with Triumph, Yamaha and even Charley Boorman among their clientele. Down and Out were set up by
Shaun Walker, who began building bikes as a hobby around 12 years ago from the garage at the rear of his house. He told MCN: “After building an old Honda CB450 and a Yamaha TR1, a trip to London to one of the very first Bike Shed shows started us on the road to where we are now.
“We’re not just bike builders; we make parts in our workshop, too, mostly for BMWS and Triumphs. This gives our customers a chance to build a bike themselves. We pride ourselves on our high quality, and we work with our clients to give them the best service possible.”
