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.”
