About Us:
British Spares Ltd is a forward-thinking online business, stocking a huge range of parts and accessories for classic Norton, Triumph, and BSA motorcycles. Founded in Wellington, New Zealand in 1987, the company is run by Kiwis with years of hands-on experience dealing with the foibles and vagaries of classic British motorcycles and their owners. If you have any questions about British Spares Ltd, or our products, head on over to the contact page and drop us a line. We now operate online from our purpose built warehouse near Nelson, New Zealand, and have the ability to pass on the significant savings of our low overheads, bulk buying power, and wealth of experience to you, the customer. Our web-based ordering system is available all day and every day for your convenience, and your parts are shipped directly to your door.
Formerly based in Wellington, New Zealand, we moved into our purpose built warehouse facility near Nelson, in 2011.

If you have any questions please  contact us...

So here's a quick glimpse of a few bits lurking on some of our shelves. Now you might get an idea of why we don't answer the phone on a Friday...

What's new at British Spares...

Updated Monday, April 8th, 2019: We have now integrated most of the John Miller parts inventory into our Nelson warehouse. John produced a variety of quality items in New Zealand, paying special attention to replicating the genuine look and feel, whilst also being as close to original specification as possible. Most authentic restorations of Norton, Triumph and BSA bikes of the 1950s through '70's carry items formerly produced by John. We'll miss his knowledge and professionalism.

At British Spares, we pride ourselves on being in a constant state of flux.. To misquote the great Dr Emmett Brown, 'The way I see it, if you're gonna build a time machine, why not do it with some *style?* Great Scott, if my calculations are correct, when this baby hits 88 miles per hour... you're gonna see some serious shit.' He may have been talking about the DeLorean, but most of us are building time machines with these bikes too...
