I am Fred Spaven, a mechanical engineer with a passion for all things automotive, especially anything unusual. Following a career in superconductivity research, I decided to pursue my real interests and set up Spaven Engineering; specialising in the restoration and modification of vintage and classic motorcycles. We undertake work ranging from maintenance and repair jobs through full nut-and-bolt restorations to one-off designs and custom builds.

While we tend to specialise in smaller British bikes we are happy to work on anything on two (or occasionally three) wheels whether it's designed to get muddy, go fast or just get to work in the morning.

The recent explosion in electric vehicles is extremely exciting and, with my background in electrical engineering, we are beginning to move into the world of battery power with our first electric vehicle project – a Royal Enfield Bullet conversion; The Charging Bullet

For more details on what we do, have a look through our project pages and feel free to get in touch if you have any questions.
