Hello! Welcome to the online home of ASL Motorcycles, a motorcycle repair shop based in York.
My name is Alan Longhurst, I’ve been working as a fully trained technician in franchised motorcycle dealers around York for 20+ years; you may know me from Alan Mountain Motorcycles, Miles Kingsport, Moto Veloce or Infinity Motorcycles.
My workshop on the outskirts of York is fully equipped with the latest tools and electronic diagnostic equipment from all the major manufacturers. Most of my new customers come from word-of-mouth recommendations – I have a numer of Aprilia RSV riding customers who travel from all over the North East to have their bikes serviced by me.
I have also had extensive experience in fitting accessories like Autocomintercoms and heated grips – please give me a call for a quote.
As a start up small business, I have no employees, all work is carried out personally by me.
Wether you’re looking for a basic service on your 50cc scooter or a full engine rebuild on a cutting edge sports bike, I have the tools, experience and training to do the job properly without charging you the earth.
I started work in the motorcycle trade in 1986 as a school leaver and started an apprenticeship at Alan Mountain Motorcycles, the main Honda dealer in York.
I had worked there for 14 years and was the workshop foreman when I left went to join Moto Veloce, a Ducati motorcycle dealer.
I then moved to Greenside Kawasaki, a multi franchised dealer, as foreman to run their workshop. There, I worked on Aprilia, Kawasaki, Vespa and Piaggio motorcycles and scooters.
The dealership was later taken over by Miles Kingsport where I continued as Workshop Manager.
After the demise of Mile Kingsport in York, I moved to Infinity Motorcycles, again as workshop manager. Infinity Motorcycles was, at the time, the Kawasaki and Aprilia franchised dealers for York and we also sold and repaired used motorcycles.
In 2008 I set up on my own to work for my self, doing something I enjoy doing. When Infinity Motorcycles in York closed their workshops. I took over their Kawasaki and Aprilia service and diagnostic equipment which I have continued to keep up to date.
Having worked with many motorcycle franchises and having taken all the training available to me in my time working in franchised dealers, as well as having purchased as much manufacturers’ own tooling and diagnostics and having a number of contacts at official importers and main dealers, I hope to provide the best possible service without charging main dealer prices.
