Meet The Team

The team here at Unique Wheels HQ really do care about the quality of bikes we deal in and the high level of customer service we provide. Our number 1 priority is to supply the best examples of desirable motorcycles available whilst providing a friendly and professional service to you, wherever you may be based in the UK.

Call us old-fashioned, but we can't help notice that the larger bike shops are being run by accountants and staffed by people who see being in this industry as just a job. We're firm believers you need to be passionate about motorcycle to be in the industry, not just in it for the glory.  Therefore all of us are into bikes, more than qualified to Choose, Clean, Fix, Polish, Spit, Tweak and Retail all our bikes (OK, so maybe not Sonya) so you will often find us job swapping here on a daily basis to get the job done properly.  We all go the extra mile to make sure we have some of the best motorcycles for sale in the UK. Well, we think they are and will let you be the judge of that!

The company has continued to grow from strength to strength both in bikes and the team driving the business. We all really enjoy what we do and hope that is expressed in the high service we offer and the quality of the bikes we supply, however oddball they may be.

Darren Gorton

Owner, Buyer and Hands on Operator...everything and anything!

Riding 2 wheels since before he could walk, (but not before he could talk, he was born talking) his infectious desire to have fun for a living comes across in the bike we sell and the service we offer. Working in the motorcycle industry since 1986, Yes he really is that old, his passion for all things 2 wheeled is infectious. Often caught daydreaming about taking off on his Trail Bike or using the excuse “just popping out for an hour “ only to take off for the entire afternoon on his mountain bike, the battle between work and play is on going.

Stuart Galliers

Sales Manager.

The most famous Amatuer Boxer youve never heard of...

When hes not Supporting Darren helping people across the country spend their kids inheritance on our bikes, he can be found rolling around in the mud at Tough Mudders or playing the role of doting Dad to his 2 young children (quite a contrast isn’t it and one he really doesn’t want to get mixed up!) Cutting his teeth as a mechanic before wandering through our doors, Stuarts attention detail is unquestionable and he is own worst enemy when it comes to the standard of the bikes we retail, which is a great problem to have......

Jack Jones

Jack of all trades..Literally

Its never too early for nose bleeding grunge music...

Plucked from the awful grasps of One Stop convenience chain where he was an under paid and over worked store manager, this motorcycle and grunge loving individual fits right at home here. His passion towards cleaning and preparing our sales bikes makes even our fastideousness towards cleaning seem rather relaxed.

When hes not appearing from the ploom of cleaning spray like a contestant on stars in your eyes you will find him racing up and down the country appraising lovely motorcycles for you to spend your childrens inheritance on.
