Comet Classics was born out of two friend's enthusiasm for classic & vintage motorcycle and petrol pumps. Between them, Martin Webb and Ray Waller have over 80 years of automotive and motorcycle experience. What started as a private collection is now a three-year-old business with over 100 classics motorcycles and petrol pumps in stock. Many are appreciating classics and all represent excellent value for money. For more information visit
