The Classic Bike Experience would not have been possible without the help and guidance of Frank Holmes of Franks Brit Bike Barn in Chocurua, NH. Our original club, The Classic Bike Cooperative, had many options on where to get parts and do business - as you all do. Somehow, we found ourselves doing more and more business with Frank. Passionate about Brit Bikes, knowledgeable (including a knowledge of what he didn't know), honest and funny, Frank become our one-stop shop for just about all of our parts and advice. His prices were always fair and he usually had something in the corner for us that was a little special. He was, and is, a terrific friend and colleague.
And, like the bikes, when it was time for him to consider turning over his business to someone, it became as much an emotional as well as business decision. We all like to sell our bikes to a good home and we were honored Frank wanted us to take his business forward. He was, not surprisingly, most concerned about finding a good 'home' for his customers.
What's next for Frank? He will continue to pursue his bike hobby in his well equipped garage in Eaton, while having the time to pursue other interests after 12 years of FBBB. You can get a hold of Frank easily through his site at www.franksbritbikes.com.
The Classic Bike Experience has taken over Frank's extensive inventory, parts business and client list. We will also retain Frank as a technical and business advisor. We hope to make the same impression on our customers that Frank did on us many years ago.
