About Quaker City Motor Works

George Parson
This is a picture I took of George Parson (of Parson Auto & Cycle in Lambertville, NJ) around 1993. He was the man in my area for British bikes and tall tales. Many an afternoon was spent with George and his wife sipping coffee in his kitchen. Many thanks George.

There is no pretense here, at QCMW what we do is ride, race, fix and restore old motorcycles (British with the occasional other mixed in). In the mean time we stock the parts, the apparel, the equipment and more that we use.

QCMW is the Philadelphia area’s premier full service shop and source for vintage parts focusing on vintage British bikes. Give the shop a buzz and we can chat about what you need. 

Since 2009 QCMW has been shipping parts and accessories for vintage British bikes all over the world.

 

Ever since I got my first motorcycle and had to deal with the arrogant attitudes at different bike shops, I wanted to have my own shop and do it better. Thirteen years later chatting with my good friend Sean, we started planning and named it Quaker City Motor Works. Sean took off to manage a moto shop in Philly and eight years later I opened QCMW.
