Awarded 1st Prize for Best 1980's Bike at the

World Renowned Stafford Motorcycle Show Oct 2023.  



Holmetech is a family-run business well renowned for 'Attention to detail' not just for AR50/80's.

We are located in the North West of England and have been restoring AR/AE's for over 20 years and have built up a top reputation for our work and helpfulness. Nothing is too much trouble and we like to go the extra mile.

If you have your bike restored by us, it will return to you factory fresh, some people say better. 


We have a vapour blasting machine and sandblast cabinet. So if you just need an Engine casing, Carb or brake plate vapour blasting or a pair of wheels or fork legs sandblasting, you have come to the right place.

We will do as much or as little as you like, from fork rebuilds to engine rebuilds, painting, powder coating, etc.

We don't just restore AR's we restore other two strokes too. See Gallery pictures.


We have set the parts shop up to help people out with their own AR restorations, as some of the AR parts you buy on the internet aren't a good fit or even fit at all like Master cylinder kits.

All the parts we sell on here have been used on restorations over the years. We have even remanufactured parts that are no longer available from Kawasaki just to keep the AR's alive.

We have helped hundreds of people finish their AR restorations off with those hard to find parts or expert advice.

We also set up a Facebook group called 'AR50/80 Owners & Enthusiasts group' better known as AROG for short. On there are plenty of pictures, discussions, wiring diagram and a lot of our friends, customers and great helpful people. We also organise AR Rideouts throughout the year which are great fun and take you back to being 16/17 again. We have a lot of friendly banter too. 

Thats a bit about Holmetech, thanks for taking time to read this and hope to see or speak to you soon.
