About D.A.M. Classic Racing
D.A.M. Classic Racing is 100% Australian owned. The company came into being in 2004 when Greg Parish set up in his home workshop to provide maintenance and service facilities for members of the local Laverda clubs in Victoria. His experience of having raced a Laverda in Superbike races throughout the 1980's became a unique source of knowledge for Laverda riders. Greg went on to win the Australian BEARS Championship (aka Formula European) in 1990 and finished 5th in the WSBK Classic that same year. The history of his racing and return to racing in 2011 can be found by clicking on this LINK. His sons Jimmy and Angus continue the racing tradition setting Drag Racing Records and Salt Lake Land Speed Records won on Laverda machines built and developed by D.A.M. Classic Racing.
In 2007 Greg was contracted by FIM (International Motorcycling Federation) as Director of Lighting Data Aquisition to work with five times Moto GP World Champion Mick Doohan and a lighting manufacturing group to conduct night-time tests to ascertain the feasibility of running MotoGP under lights. The first MotoGP under lights was staged in 2008 at the Qatar Losail circuit and the winner being Australian Casey Stoner. Greg and his son Jimmy were contracted by German television to film the Australian component of a documentary about Stoner's win.
As the service business grew, the D.A.M. Classic Racing name became an International Registered Trademark. In 2015 the business moved into the Springvale workshop it shared with Stealth Electric Bikes and Drysdale Design and then on to purpose built premises in Swanpool in 2021. Greg Parish continues to manage the business with his son Angus and Barry Hartley. Its service workshop has alloy/steel welding capabilities, lathe, mill, other engineering machinery for engine refurbishing and restoration of parts. The separate spare parts warehouse has an inventory of more than 5000 spare parts in stock to supply Laverda owners, other motorcycle repair shops and the specialised needs of the Classic Racer.
