A multi-million pound motorcycle emporium in Bury St Edmunds is to continue to grow with the opening of a new cafe later this month.
Krazy Horse motorcycles has made the move from Looms Lane to a new larger site at the Lark Valley Business Park.
That opened on December 22. Now owner Paul Beamish is to open the Rockers Cafe on January 19, in collaboration with Ace Cafe London.
Krazy Horse, which also sells clothes, specialises in building custom bikes.
Mr Beamish said the new site had been two years in the planning.
“We are bringing a whole new concept of luxury to the East of England for those with an interest in bikes, three wheelers, hotrods, fashion, music and culture.
“This will be a showcase facility where people can come and experience some of the very best motorcycle innovations on the planet and take in the world of merchandise and the all action events that surround them.
“If you want a classic motorcycle, chopper, bobber or three wheeler that will combine function and form, we can deliver it to you – or if you just want to immerse in the culture generated by stunning street-machines, there is something for everyone – from coffee to crusing to clothing, we’ve got it all covered.
“We will be linking up with the best manufacturers in the industry to stage some memorable meets and events – mixing fun, fashion and creativity.
“This will be a cross-genre venue to watch.”
The centre will also feature a globally stocked parts department.
The company was started as a hobby by Mr Beamish in 1996 when he could not get hold of the parts he needed from local shops.
“For me this is a dream job – bikes are in my blood – my grandfather used to adapt bikes in the 1930s,” said Mr Beamish.
“The designs are about orginiality, creating something that just flows. It’s about being a rebel and striving to build something monumental.”
