“Everything was shipped back in five 40-foot sea containers.”

Most of the bikes are British models from brands such as Royal Enfield, BSA, Triumph and Norton.

As well as complete or near-complete bikes, there are hundreds of bike frames, a mountain of wheels and a tower of fuel tanks.

Then there are trays and trays of speedometers plus stacks of engines for all different sorts of bikes.
