Foley Motorcycles

" A Brief History "

Foley Motorcycles

Founded in the early 1950's by the late Frank Bentley, in Foley Street, Fenton, Foley Motorcycles soon outgrew the small premises and moved to its current location in King Street Fenton.

Mr Bentley retired in the 1960's and the business was sold to Mr Joe Furnival. Known as Foley Joe, he ran the business through the British bike era until the Japanese took over as the main motor cycle producer.

In 1975 Joe Martin bought Foley Motorcycles. Joe, a keen Motorcyclist and skilled engineer, appreciated the need for a motorcycle shop to provide a good after sales service with spares and workshop back up. Joe started the long process of modernising and refurbishing the shop.

Later the same year Kevin Rushton joined the work force part time at first building bikes and later was employed full time helping to set up and sell the large range of YAMAHA and MZ spares which the shop now carried in stock. In 1976 Joe was joined by his son Philip, who worked mainly on the service and repair side of the business. In 1987 a large workshop extension was completed to further demonstrate the importance placed on the service and repair business, servicing all makes of bikes.

After 21 years as a partnership Joe Martin retired, leaving Phil to continue to build on a business which has survived on traditional values of customer service.

Now with Phil at the helm and with the support of his long serving staff, Foleys, as the shop is nicknamed, looks set to carry on through and beyond the millennium; providing a wide range of both new and quality pre-owned motorcycles.

Continuing with the ethos of providing a personalised, professional and friendly service, Foley have proved themselves to be a popular one-stop-shop for the purchasing of motorcycles and accessories as well as offering servicing, repairs and sound professional advice.
