Number One Source For Used Motorcycles

Over twenty years ago in Oldham, Manchester, a group of like-minded bike enthusiasts came together and used their passion for motorcycles to create what we have today; SoManyBikes.com

We've come a long way since then and we believe our success lies in our focus on the key points of our business, giving you the very best used motorbikes, taking into account:

Affordability - Our 10,000 square foot showroom is based in the renovated basement of one of Oldham's traditional cotton mills. Spending time and resources on the customer experience is more important to us then spending tens of thousands on overheads, thus passing the savings on to you.

Choice - More used bikes in one location than anywhere else in the UK. We have a staggering range to choose from. Combine these two points with our great promotional packages and anyone can ride away happy.

Customer Service - Keep things simple; look after the pennies and give great value for money, look after your customers and build on repeat business.

It really is that simple and sometimes we are surprised so many other dealers cannot work it out!

We also take it to the next level because no one else offers as much as we do:

  • 30 Day Money Back Guarantee on all of our remote purchases
  • Warranties for up three years
  • Bikers Armchair Treatment
  • The Bike Swap Promotion
  • An excellent range of finance Packages
  • Delivery of our bikes to anywhere in the UK

We now serve customers all over the UK, and are thrilled to be a part of the growing automotive industry.

We hope you enjoy our bikes as much as we enjoy offering them to you. If you have any questions or comments, please don't hesitate to contact us.

The Somanybikes Experience

Our unique buying process starts with a phone call. Establishing a strong relationship with the previous owner of a motorcycle is important, so we don't just talk business. We make sure we get to know everyone who comes to us with a bike that needs a new home. We're strongly against buying from traders, auction houses, and vehicle importers who can't know the true history of the motorcycle they are selling. Instead we prefer to deal with the real bikers who have really kicked their leg over and enjoyed their machine.

We don't match your dream bike with a nightmare deal. We're proud of being able to offer some of the most competitive packages on the market, with parts and labour warranties, great finance options and realistic part exchange prices available, so it's no wonder we're celebrating!

"Look after the pennies and the pounds will look after themselves." We keep our overheads to a minimum because we believe it's more about the right bike at the right price than the glass-fronted showroom, suits and parker pens. The bikes are taken in for a thorough clean and more mechanical checks and when we're satisfied that the bike looks its best we proudly add it to the line, ready to find its new home. The result of this rigorous process is that each one of our bikes is a handpicked gem, and it's a time-tested formula that continues to fill our showroom with only the best at the best prices.

It's important for us to physically visit the bikes' home so our drivers, many of which have been with us for over 16 years, criss-cross the country 24/7 rooting out the most loved motorcycles from all four corners. They love bikes, love meeting new people and with their years of experience behind them, they make sure to never bring a bad one back.

Our drivers get to shake the hand of the biker who rode the bike and see it in its environment close up. If we find a bike that has been thrashed around on a track, dragged to work in rain every day or stored leaning against a hosepipe in the back garden, we decide it's not for us. We won't take anything less than the best. Making sure the bike meets our expectations is essential to our process so we have a lengthy chat with the person who spent his time on the bike to ask him how he's got on.

We perform a vigorous 101-point check on each bike before we buy. Often selling a bike is an unfortunate necessity for its previous owner so this helps reassure them that it's going to a good home. The bike is turned over, test ridden, and undergoes a complete body inspection to ensure it would fit in with the others in our showroom. We also make certain it has had a HPI check and the documents are in order before it is handed over. Then it's a heartfelt goodbye before we hit the road and it's ready for its journey to a new home.
