Lumley Engineering - CNC Milling, Machining Prototypes to Volume Production for Willersey
Thank you to all the lovely people who are keeping us so busy with one-offs and custom components for their sidecar outfits. With many exciting and interesting projects under way, every day sees something new. Since launching our Hub Centric steering system last year, we have been refining details to improve this modification. Leading link front forks also continue to be an in-demand item for all sorts of bikes attached to all sorts of sidecars from sports tourers to hearses.
There's always room for one more on top though, so if you are looking for ways to give your outfit more stability, more precise steering and better handling, let us take a look. Because of the bespoke nature of the work, we can only quote for conversions on bikes that we have seen 'in the metal', so can't provide a general purpose kit. What you will get when you visit our workshop is an honest appraisal of what can be done, along with a realistic quote and timescale. Drop us a line, or call to get booked in.

Trevor Ireson sidecar outfit repaired after heavy crash at Pembrey
The "Team Past it On" sidecar outfit was brought to us in a fairly sorry state after their crash at Pembrey. This bike was built in 2000 and we have known it all through its racing history. It has always been a privilege to work on one of Trevor Iresons masterpieces.
Once the chassis had been repaired, we were able to make a new floor pan working from Trevor Ireson's original mould.
The before and after photo sequence shows the damage to the main box section 'spine' of the outfit as well as massive damage to the tubular framework of the sidecar floor. Because the outfit was so well known to us, we were able to get the chassis back to its original glory and we are looking forward to seeing "Team Past it On" out there campaigning this lovely piece of engineering for many years to come.
For specialist markets such as motorsport and vehicle restoration, we have the facilities and expertise to make one-off and replica components. Even if you are not local, many parts can be made as one-off items or short-run production components from your drawings, patterns or templates emailed or posted to us from the Willersey area.
