Hilton Smythe welcomes to the market JHS Racing, For Sale due only to our client's wish for a well-earned early retirement.

JHS is the South West's leading independent motorcycle workshop and performance centre, offering services such as motorcycle servicing, motorcycle tyres, MOT Testing, suspension services, performance parts, dyno engine tuning, aqua-blasting and restoration, for road motorcycles, track or race machines.

As the leading centre for Bristol and the wider South West catchment area, JHS offers experience and exclusive knowledge in maintenance, service and repairs, for such marques as Aprilia, BMW, Ducati, Honda, Kawasaki, Suzuki, Yamaha, and Triumph. This also affords the business a well-earned, enviable, and unique relationship, in respect of both general and performance parts, with many of the manufacturers and suppliers.

Reinvestment into racing, sponsorship and name awareness has help to build the JHS brand to its current healthy and respected market position.

In our client's ownership for many years and locally renowned throughout the South West, the business has become known for its excellence, and being largely unopposed has become the 'go to' centre for all things motorcycle. Benefitting plenty of regular, repeat, and new custom, JHS Racing has a solid and large existing client base.

Our client has established direct accounts/relationships with a major motorcycle brand, numerous tyre companies and numerous exceptionally high quality parts companies. In addition, the business has secured their area of the UK as being authorised centres of dealership and service for these companies, and whereby they will not grant further accounts to alternative companies.

There is a fantastic, modern and engaging website , plenty of social media, name awareness, and quality online feedback and internet presence. JHS is renowned for only ever using original and high quality parts to manufacture specifications.

Although an already successful business with excellent historic accounts and financials, there is always room for organic growth. The business turnover annually has always been consistent, with excellent annual accounts.

Ideal as a bolt-on business to an existing operator seeking to obtain another geographical area, or an experienced partnership with the same passion and enthusiasm for the sector as our client.
