Just been on Royal Enfield UK site and done a "locate nearest dealer" thing. Typed in "Edinburgh" and up came a dealer in Armadale, West Lothian. However, I was unable to find anything else about this dealer when googling them. Anybody heard anything?

What was the dealers name?Remember from the 1990s a motorcycle dealer in Armadale.I think that was a Kawasaki dealership now gone.

A V Bikes is the only name that I can find that links to that address. No website, no phone number. Very strange.

The building that is shown on the Google map on the RE UK dealers guide is a closed down Indian restaurant. When that business shut down the local rumour/story was that the building was going to be used as a bike shop. That was maybe 2 years ago. It would be good if we did get a new RE dealer around here.

I can think of one dealer in Scotland where I don't think you can get any more than about half a dozen bikes in there.Another also in Scotland who at one point only ever had one bullet 500 on show.I get the impression RE would be happy to share floor space with the local co op.

The Armadale dealer has now been removed from the dealer map. You have to wonder how a dealer that never existed made it on there in the first place! Jamesy, the last dealer I remember in Armadale was a Ernie Page, early 80s, Suzuki.

KC1961 That might have been the one as my memory isn't the best in old age.I used to pop in if I was working in the area and always remember a big green Kawasaki ninja alwaysthere.Was there any other dealers Bathgate apart in that area?

Jamesy, early 80s would have been way before green ninjas. Jim Allan was in Bathgate and is still there, Honda, Suzuki, Yamaha at different times. C & J Wilson, Uphall were Kawasaki dealers until they closed down about 7 years ago.

Hi, I just found out that Ian Murrays at Bilsten Glen, Edinburgh which was the local RE dealer, had a fire and went into liquidation in December. That's where I recently bought a C5 enfield and expected it to be serviced. Eclipse motorcycles at Tranent used to deal in REs and service them but it was some years since I used them and I think they might now specialise in Scooters. I would like to know if there is a place near Edinburgh for RE.

KC .1961 it very well could have been Wilson's in Uphall I was thinking about.Harryb.Eclipse in Tranent is where I bought my RE 350 last November.Nice bunch of guys who now are dealers for scooters.They occasionally sell bikes on behalf of RE owners who originally purchased enfields of them.Ian Murray is a bit of a shock as that leaves either AMR in Renfrew or Sandy Bloy in Perth as your nearest dealers.Surely another dealership will open back up in Edinburgh.

Hi Guys------During the late 1960's I was an ERA Apprentice with the RN based at HMS Caledonia, Rosyth.......Do any of you chaps "North 'o the Border" remember Alexander's motorcycle shop in Edinburgh ??....

There was an Alexander's in Semple Street City centre who were a Ford car dealer and also sold Motorcycles.Graham Chatham was another car dealer who sold motorcycles at that time.

Just heard that Saltire in Edinburgh is now an RE dealer. I think they were a dealer for about 5 minutes 3 years ago.

I enquired at Saltire Motorcycles in W Edinburgh. Their reply: We can certainly accomodate your for the MOT but at present, we're still collating the necessary information with regards to stock and service parts along with service tools. I anticipating that we will be all up an running for Enfield servicing for early April.
