Oldest Motorcycle Breakers Yard

We’ve been in Bevois Valley Road, Southampton since the beginning, over 70 years ago! We’re the oldest resident business in the street

the oldest Motorcycle Breakers and Servicers in Southampton. We’ve seen many competitors come and go. 

Started by Harold Gregory as the Auto Hospital after returning from the Second World War, we’ve seen a vast change in motorcycles, the motorcycle market and the needs of the motorcyclist.

Valley Motorcycles is known as quite the institution among the motorcycle trade within the South. We’ve witnessed the rise and fall of many British brands such as Norton, Ariel and Matchless and the dominance of the Japanese makes that WE specializes in today.

Since the death of Harold Gregory in 2011, Valley Motorcycles is now run by the second and third generations of the Gregory family.

Both John and Elliot continue to serve the biking community with the same passion as Harold did for so many years.
