Meet The Team

We run a tight ship and it is likely that during the course of dealing with us you will meet one of the following;

Ian Cooper – Senior Underwriter/Buyer

Joined the motorcycle trade in 1986 and been at it ever since. Covered all aspects of the trade, (Never had a proper job!) but been concentrating on buying and selling bikes since 1992. Ian deals with the day-to-day running of the business, contacts all new sellers to arrange a suitable price and collection date for all the sell my bike requests we have each day. If you're looking to sell your used bike, it's likely that Ian will be the first person in line to pick up your request. He's a top bloke and he loves a bit of motorsport!








Pete Ball – Service Manager/Buyer

Pete has been a Motorcycle mechanic since 1983, he has a vast knowledge of bikes deeper and wider than the Grand Canyon! He can work on everything from Aprilia’s to Zundapp’s and often still does! Factory trained, widely experienced and a genuine and friendly guy. Any second hand bike we receive goes straight to Pete. He'll carry out a 1001 point check on the vehicle to make sure it's roadworthy and sometimes he'll swap out any custom parts for factory fitted before they go on sale. He's a stickler for original spec!







Andy Harbour – Preparation Specialist/Buyer

Andy has been riding bikes since 1981 and has advanced to IAM status. Widely regarded as the best Motorcycle Valet & Preparation specialist in the area, Andy has a keen eye for detail and an enthusiastic “can do” approach. Involved with the buying and acquiring of new used bikes, he knows his motors, so much so that we put him to work in the prep of our motorcycles before they go on sale at Cooper B. Andy loves DIY and fancies himself as a bit of a handyman.

All of the above are honest, approachable and friendly types. We pride ourselves on delivering our promises and keeping our word, if you want to deal with straight people, we won’t disappoint you..
