Ray from Tipton, CCM FT35S. December 2017
"Saw the bike I was looking for on Chris's website and bought it. That's enough about the bike what about the man?
What words should I use to make my point? I know lets try this then!
He was/is completely genuine about all aspects of our transactions- you should expect the same!
Knows and applies his own personal knowledge and trade contacts information in a manner that tries to reach the best outcome for both parties.
Very hard guy not to like, sure it's his business but you can also tell It's his passion as well...
You can tell straight away it's not just about the money, he WANTS customers buying or selling to go away HAPPY.
We enjoyed a bit of "banter" throughout our dealings. Chris took all of my unique humour and ribbing very well!
So if Chris has the bike you have always been looking for I would say get in touch. I doubt very much if you will regret It!
GREAT BIKES, GOOD ETHICS, NICE GUY

The call to let me know you were running over an hour late was especially appreciated as it meant I had time to get my dog to the vet without worrying about missing the delivery. Thanks also to your driver (sorry, didn't catch his name) who got the bike running...tell him I managed to start her no problem on my second kick after watching how he did it."
Lorna, North Aberdeenshire, April 2010
"I wanted to drop you a line to say what an absolute pleasure it has been, dealing with you and Classic Super Bikes. Things that particularly took me by surprise included the absolute honesty with which the bike was described, the fact that you held it for me purely on the strength of my word, the fact that you delivered it to my house free of charge and within 45 minutes of purchase (Domino's Pizza can only just pull that off!) and finally I just really enjoyed our brief opportunity to chew the fat. So, thank you, that was really great service and it made buying my dream bike even more pleasurable. I trust that Classic Super Bikes will go from strength to strength and I would recommend your service to absolutely anyone looking for classic machines."
Paul, Surrey, March 2010
"This was my first purchase from Chris Bunce - Classic Super Bikes - and I could tell you it won't be my last. Firstly a word of thanks for a wonderful bike, you can be sure it is in a good home. I found in our 'lengthy' dealings leading up to a deal that Chris was genuine, honest and above all extremely patient - especially when dealing with me, the 'customer from hell'! Chris is extremely friendly and treated me like I was a regular, not just another customer. I had a no hassle experience buying my first bike from Chris, a special Ajay 350 that was/is exactly as described. I hope that after this experience Chris will allow me to dip into his "Aladdin’s cave" of stock again; I would do it again in a heartbeat!"
Mark, Lincs, February 2010

This is why you deserve the comments posted by previous customers. Think we will do business again when I'm ready for another.The courier was also very good and delivered bike safely."
Ian, Scotland, January 2010

"I thought it appropriate to drop you a quick note to say thanks. In particular, it's been nearly a year since I bought the 888 and I have to say it has been tremendous. Despite it being an old bike by modern day superbike standards it's amazing how much fun I have every time I ride it. The intoxicating mix of noise (lots of it) and loads of torque are a recipe for a smile. Moreover, I hope business is good for you and I have to admit I keep an eye on your website on the off chance that I see something that sparks off my biking memories."
Tony, Buckinghamshire, August 2009
"The bike arrived on time and was waiting on the docks for me to drive away.

I want to thank you for your professional friendly service from the first phone call to the delivery. Many thanks".
William, Guernsey, July 2009
