Gavin Wheeler bought his first bike in 1973. It was an NSU Quickly, a 1957 German moped, and it broke down so often that he learned basic mechanics just keeping it running. Gavin moved on to a BSA250, passed his test, switched to a 650, then owned (and thrashed) two 750 Tridents. His next bike was a Moto Guzzi T3, which he crashed spectacularly. During his stint at OME Gavin took up racing, on his own Guzzi Le Mans and SS.
In the late 60's Bill started selling Japanese models, the most popular being Suzuki and Honda, with such European makes as BMW and Moto Guzzi. The company moved in the 1970's to larger premises inWalton Street, where Yamaha and others were added. Gordon started in 1976. This made Faulkners the household name for motorcycles in Oxfordshire. Bill ran the business until mid 1980. In 1983 the company expanded again moving to the Botley Road site stocking over 300 new and used machines.
