From what I'd read Charlie was a no non-sense Triumph specialist who, despite being a bit full of himself, had the chops to backup his talk. I'd only had services through Peter Thievens aka Stevens where they pretty much just take your money and say thanks for coming, these guys actually helped out a new rider to help them on their way.

We now have over 3000 parts on file. There is an exciting retail shop and museum at the front and all the usual rebuilds, repairs and restorations out the back. For Paul, riding bikes gives him a sense of freedom and fixing them gives him a real sense of achievement.
We appreciate your patience while we made this transition. We will be open for a few hours for Chris to take calls. Everything he has done for me has been spot on. He does amazing work, keeps in contact with me and as far as I know, super thorough. No parcels will go out as Australia Post will be closed. I took the Triumph in for a minor service and he pointed out immediately that the wrong gear selector had been fitted it was one from a Daytona which is much shorter amongst other things.

I was in his shop at this point and his rudeness almost got him decked by me, but my mate was bum chums with him so I just walked out and left him with his bike.
