Welcome to Biker's Toolbox
Biker's Toolbox is run by motorcycle enthusiasts with a wealth of knowledge and experience in the motorcycle trade and engineering spanning decades. We are Bikers and we know what Bikers want - Good value and good service!
There are plenty of businesses selling cheap Far East tools made of cheese! The hand tools we are selling are high quality professional tools that will last a lifetime and many are guaranteed as such, from tool manufacturers such as Signet. Our hand tools won't be the cheapest in the market, and we wouldn't want them to be - we would rather explain the price of quality, than apologise for something less. Cheap tools damage bikes! Our tools, however are very much less expensive than other equivalent tools commonly available.
Like many of you, we miss the good old days when you could go to tool shops and be helped by knowledgable staff with a love of their products.On this web site we aim to sell you the products we know to be good through personal experience. We do our best to keep our prices as low as possible, but obviously there will always be quick-buck merchants selling ridiculously cheap on-line, but they can give real service and will they still be there if you have a problem a few months down the road? Will they give a damn? We want to build a positive relationship with our customers for years to come through good service.
We are making videos demonstrating how to perform service and maintenance tasks on bikes, such as stripping, cleaning and rebuilding the braking system. We will be providing these video tutorials and demonstrations free for all to use and learn from; all we ask is that you buy your tools from us.
The first is demonstrates how to strip a front hydraulic brake system on an old Kawasaki Z1000A1. We show you drain the fluid, strip and rebuild the calipers and how to bleed up the system we your finished. To view Brake Service video click here
We have a video demonstrating the method used to fit a set of barrels and pistons on a four cylinder engine, showing the best methods we have found to perform this often tricky exercise. To view the piston fitting video click here
We show how to repair / upgrade a thread in a cyclinder head using a Helicoil theads insert kit. To see the video about Helicoils click here
We uncover the mystery of tyre changin, showing you how to fit tyres to your bike - both tubed and tubeless. We also show you how to balance them.

In Memory of John Hopkins 10th February1960 ~ 2nd April 2016
My very good friend and star of the above videos, John Hopkins, sadly lost his twenty year battle with a degenerative disease in April. He fought long and hard, amazing doctors with his lust for life. He rode at every available opportunity, even when he was so ill he needed friends to help him get on. John had an infectious love of joy and excitment and really lived his life to the full. He would never let an opportunity for fun pass him by and encouraged all his friends to do likewise, even before the heinous, evil virus attacked his heart, starting the swinging of a medical Sword of Damocles. His passing has left a huge whole in my heart and that of his other friends and his widow and three children. As long as there is breath in my body I shall have fond memories of John.
