Having been around sports cars and motorcycles at an early age (learning to ride a motorcycle at just 7 years old), Anthony’s professional career started some 22 years ago with the formation of NLS Spares Ltd. Specialising in supplying spares for E Type Jaguars, the company was one of the first to import crash damaged / un-restorable cars and break them for spares. In its day quite radical but as the late 1980’s approached and the prices began to rise, the thirst for genuine and original spares became obvious.
As the company grew, its other activities included the first ‘Jaguar only’ auction held in the UK, under Sportscar International Auctions. Valuable knowledge was gained at this time in the import and export of cars and motorcycles both in Europe and the United States.
After this Anthony embarked on a 9 year association within the retail motorcycle industry, managing one of the busiest Harley dealers in the UK and building another, as well as a stint in the middle east where he established and managed the first motorcycle dealership in the Sultanate of Oman. This was also a chance to rekindle his bike racing, competing on a KTM in international rallying within the Gulf, including the Dubai off road challenge series.
Later as the manager of an international classic car auction house, he was able to uncover and offer to the market some truly fabulous and rare motorcars, being at the forefront of the classic car market. While looking after and managing the stable of many international collectors, he has been able to gain a valuable insight to the ever changing car and collector motorcycle market while offering the very best advice, guidence and service. After a four year partnership with Justin Banks, Anthony has formed a new company trading with same high level of service and expertise for with he has been known.
