David Lambeth Engeneering

I have heard that David Lambeth rebuilds teneres and sells them, and that he is especially aware of overlander needs. First of all- is this true?

Secondly, do you have to order in advance or does he have like a show room of ready prepared bikes. Or, do you have to have your own bike.

What kind of prices does he charge?

Does he have a catalogue, web site or anthing like that?

Does anybody have his adress?

I heard Chris Scott talk of renting bikes from Lambeth, where can I get more information.

If anyone has any experience/info on this I would be very great full.

Check out www.davidlambeth.co.uk (havent seen it myself) or he's on 01892 668280.
He did mention to me the plan to 'rent' oven-ready overlanders which he buys back less damage and wear.

However, it doesn't work for me either so I'd guess that the web / DNS server or router he is using is faulty in some way. Have you tried phoning him and suggest that he contacts his ISP? They should be able to sort the problem without much difficulty.

I have just got my bike back from David. He rebuilt the Gearbox with uprated parts and generally serviced the whole bike.

He did a brilliant job and I know It'll hold out in Africa where I'm going in March.

He works out of a workshop in Ashdown forest and sells some prepped/non-prepped trail bikes - He usually fixes up bikes that have been brought in to him. No showroom etc.

His website doesn't work because he hasn't finished it.

If you buy TBM magazine there is an article about a an XT that he built. I think it was the Feb issue.

Membership - help keep us going!

Horizons Unlimited is not a big multi-national company, just two people who love motorcycle travel and have grown what started as a hobby in 1997 into a full time job (usually 8-10 hours per day and 7 days a week) and a labour of love. To keep it going and a roof over our heads, we run events (22 this year!); we sell inspirational and informative DVDs; we have a few selected advertisers; and we make a small amount from memberships.
