Hilton Smythe welcomes to the market Morpheus Motorcycles Ltd, For Sale due to our client's wish for a well-earned retirement after many years in the trade.

A traditional spares, repairs, servicing and MOT garage specialising in motorcycles, mopeds and bikes. Experts in 'Triumph' motorbikes, the business also provides servicing for most other makes of bike and can carry out repairs on the majority of marques whilst subbing out any MOT tests that may be required. Noted as passionate about motorcycles, a traditional independent garage with skills and customer service to match, the business has built up a solid reputation since 2003. As enthusiasts and looking after what they consider to be their customers prize possession, they also deal in sales, consumables, parts, tyres, and accessories.

Morpheus remains one of the very few specialists in this area available locally, and thus benefits from a traceable regular and repeat clientele, across the wider Bristol, Avon & Somerset area. Locally renowned for good old fashioned customer service and in our clients careful hands since 2003, there is still plenty of room for organic scope and growth by perhaps bringing the MOT service in-house. Benefitting a good social media presence including a popular Facebook page, the business also has an engaging, and informative website

An already busy and profitable going concern, bringing the MOT offering in-house would potentially add to the gross profit margins, whilst there is also the potential to add a retail line of clothing, helmets, or further accessories.

Morpheus Motorcycles is situated on a busy main A' road through the centre of Kingswood, Bristol, on the border of South Gloucestershire and Bristol City Centre.

Situated on a small industrial estate adjacent similar and complimentary businesses, there is plenty of free on and off road parking to the main road and surrounds. The business is extremely visible and easy to locate, with large external logo signage to its front elevation.
