At Boyds of Bedford there is nothing we like more than getting our hands dirty and building stuff.

Over the years we have undertaken a number of car and more recently motorcycle builds, some of which we used and cherished and some of which never really saw the light of day. As the years pass the only momento we have of some of these much loved projects is the pile of unidentified parts cluttering up our garage.

Going forward we are keen to be more organised with builds, to make sure we record our progress and create a long lasting momento of the experience as we were doing it. In steps 'Built Not Bought' motorcycle or car build journal.
