Whether you’re a budding Steve McQueen or fancy yourself as an easy rider, there’s a place to go for your motorcycle restorations if you live in Hampshire. Building up that motorcycle from a rusting skeleton or just keeping your old favourite in pristine condition, White’s Bodyworks has all the experience and know-how to give your pride and joy a new lease of life.
From Andover to Lymington and Portsmouth to Basingstoke, we’ve been bringing a little more youthful vigour to those Hampshire bikes, tuning up engines, getting rid of that rust, and pushing out those dents and dings. As customer Phil Gregory says:
“The completed work is of an exceptional standard. There is no way to tell where the repair took place unless you knew beforehand. I’d definitely recommend White’s Bodyworks and they will definitely be my first port of call if I need any future bodywork repairs.”
The Best Solution for Hampshire Motorcycle Restorations
We won’t blind you with science or try to pull the wool over your eyes. Phil and his team are a straight talking bunch of folk who care about the work they do and share one thing in common with the bikers of Hampshire – they love motorcycles of all makes, models and ages.
We know that motorcyclists are often more precious about their rides than maybe car drivers are. It’s not just a matter of getting from A to B, it’s often a way of life which is why there are so many bikers clubs around. They love their cafes for meeting up and socialising while they are out on a ride, from the Emporium in Fleet and Loomies in West Meon to Red Shoot Inn in Linwood.
It’s true that bikes can often get a little beaten up over time, and our customers are always amazed at the difference a restoration at the hands of experts can make.
Take a look at the work we’re doing on the body of this rare 1994 Honda RC45 that needed some detailed repair on the fairings. There were only 200 of these babies made between ’94 and ’99 so we had to take special care with this one to restore its natural verve and beauty.
This is what Mark Keneally had to say about our restoration of his beloved bike: “Communication was good with frequent progress updates. The end product was better than new. The workmanship is superb. I can’t wait to get the bike back together to show it off!”
Hampshire Loves Classic Cars and Motorcycles
The Hampshire Classic Motor Show is one of the major events in the county now. Held at Brearmore House in Fordingbridge it draws vintage cars and motorbikes from across the UK, providing a fun day out for auto lovers and families. You’ll see all classes of motorcycles from Triumphs and Hondas to Harleys and Suzukis, revving their engines and ready for action.
If your motorcycle should require some restoration, here are some examples of our recent work to help you make up your mind.
According to Mike Thrower: “Phil was able to provide a full bodywork and mechanical service and I was very pleased with the final result and great to have my motorbike back on the road. I had to search hard to find a suitable repairer and thoroughly recommend White’s Bodyworks.”

- Or this spray job on a Suzuki GT750.
- And how about the fairing repairs and respray on this Ducati Supersport 900.

We are in the top 5 repair services in the Free Index list and we’ve received some pretty good reviews in our time.
