Doble Motorcycles

Doble Motorcycles is a long established family run business founded in 1967 by Mike Doble senior and late brother Chris Doble. It all started with just one shop no. 88 Brighton road selling one or two step through mopeds and motorcycle servicing. Chris managed the bike business while Mike set up a used car showroom across the road at 103, this also took off very well and thrived as the motor industry boomed. Time moved on and expansion was inevitable for the Motorcycle shop.

Honda was increasing its model range rapidly with big sellers like the Superdream and CX500. The adjacent shop no. 90 was acquired and soon become filled with exciting new models. But again the market grew and the need to expand soon arrived. Seeming to take over one end of Coulsdon no. 86 was sought and another 50% increase in size took place. Honda's market share also grew to keep customers coming back time and time again.
