- About Us
D.A.M. Classic Racing came into being in 2004 when Greg Parish set up in his home workshop to provide much needed maintenance and service facilities for local Laverda owners. Having raced a Laverda in Superbike races throughout the 1980's Greg went on to win the inaugural 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.
As the service business grew, the D.A.M. Classic Racing name became an International Registered Trademark and moved into the current workshop it shares with Stealth Electric Bikes and Drysdale Design. The 8002m engineering workshop has lathes, mills, CNC mill and lathe, and alloy welding capabilities along with more than 3000 spare parts in stock to supply Laverda motorcycles and the specialised needs of the Classic Racer.

We are classic motorcycle enthusiasts. We make every effort to provide quality parts and/or services to keep your classic motorcycle on the road.
Life is short. We don’t have to provide a central point to supply spare parts as a business, but we do it because we want to see your bikes continue to be ridden and enjoyed as the manufacturer intended.
Sometimes re-manufactured parts may not be a perfect replica of the original part. We try very hard to ensure our research is correct, but sometimes you might have to make small adjustments or accept that these parts are now the best replacement available. On very rare occasions some parts may not integrate seamlessly with parts purchased from other manufacturers. Our pricing is set to enable us to continue providing you with spare parts, we are not getting rich at your expense. In this modern world where a few customers’ sense of entitlement sometimes overshadows the classic concept of good faith, it could be only be a matter of time before companies like ours will cease to exist and no parts will be available to keep your wonderful machines on the road.
Whether you are purchasing on the internet or in person always give thoughtful consideration to those generous people who spend thousands of hours sourcing or making parts, and who invest heavily to keep those parts in stock so you can continue to maintain your classic bike.
If any part you purchase from us is not what you expected then please call us. We want our customers to be happy and will work to find a solution for your problem with the minimum of fuss.
