Who are we?
Kevil’s Speed Shop was founded by Kevin Hill, who has been working in the motor industry since the early 1980s.
He fell for bikes early on in life when his father took him to the Bristol Motorcycle Show in the 1970s where he got hooked on the shiny new bikes and their smell.
A varied career followed, including industrial model making where he got his keen eye for detail and design, and gained years of experience maintaining & Customising his own Japanese and European motorcycles as a hobby.
And the rest is history; Kevil’s custom-made motorcycles are classic, retro vintage and full of cool with an iconic signature style.
Kevil’s is the UK’s premier custom and cafe racer builder, producing top quality, one-off bespoke motorcycles.
