I always dreamed to have a Kawasaki Z900 since my childhood and surfing on the net I found Pauls collection by chance. I mailed him saying that I wish to have one of his Kawasaki's and ask prices and shipping cost to Istanbul. Paul answered the next day and I select the one from the Classic Bike magazine.
Importation to Turkey wasn't an easy job but Paul has been kind and patient of all stages and found me a special cargo box which protected the bike during its Istanbul adventure and he pictured the process of packing and loading on the truck.
The bike arrived to my land without any problem and he succeeded his job, and I get so happy, my dream was realised!
My first visit to Paul’s garage was like travelling back in time and a truly amazing experience. When I start my Z, I feel young again, when out riding I am free of all my troubles and worries (and IPhone!). Where ever I go the Z draws a crowd and I realise what a shrewd investment she is.
After finding Paul’s website I visited his garage and was shown around his fantastic collection of 70's bikes. If like me you are "of a certain age" and were into bikes back then it’s brings back so many memories! I ended up buying a GT750 that was just like my old one, except in truth this one’s in much better condition! Paul went out of his way to help me get the bike home after I’d bought it and it was a pleasure to both talk with and do business with him.
I recently bought a 1979 Honda CBX from Proper bikes, it was even better than described looks virtually new, rides perfectly and now has pride of place in my garage. All their bikes are of the highest quality, and Paul Brace's passion, enthusiasm and deep Knowledge of the Classic bike market make him a pleasure to deal with. I would recommend Proper bikes to anyone looking for the very best bike.
