BUSINESS OPERATIONS UPDATE

Business Operations Update  

It is now almost 4 weeks since the factory doors closed due to the current pandemic, and we wanted to provide you with an update to the information posted at that time.  

Whilst the factory remains closed, there is a small team still working from their homes ensuring that any customer queries are dealt with and supplier communications continue, which will enable us to resume business operations as smoothly as possible.  

You will be aware that the UK government has extended the lockdown restrictions by a further 3 weeks and we wanted to reassure you that behind the scenes the senior management team is working hard to ensure that as soon as it is safe to do so we can return to work with the necessary measures in place to ensure that our staff remain safe and well.  

We plan to resume production in June and as soon as we have confirmed dates we will update all of our customers with bikes on order.  

We are doing everything within our powers to ensure that we have the necessary supplies either in stock or in transit so that production may resume and the business can gradually return to the pre-pandemic levels.  

Steve Bridgeman continues to plan in service and maintenance work which will recommence once we have the green light to resume our mobile service network. Steve can be contacted at steven.bridgeman@ccm-motorcycles.net  

Our new web portal, Club CCM will be launching very soon, so watch out for the arrival of your invitation email which will open up lots of opportunities to communicate with your fellow enthusiasts and the team here at CCM with news views and member offers too. 

Our social media channels continue to be updated regularly, and you will find some uplifting images and stories on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter.  

As a small family business, we always value your support, and now more than ever before. Our colleagues continue to liaise with those of you with existing orders, assisting with the final specifications of your bikes, and of course, we are still open for new orders!  

We understand how difficult this may be for many of you out there and we hope that you and your family and friends remain safe and well, and we will get through this together. 

Once we have the agreement that it is safe to reopen the factory, we will update you with our progress. 

Please note that any online orders from eBay etc will be processed as soon as we return – thank you for your patience. 

In the meantime, stay home, stay safe and stay well.

Dougie Lampkin becomes latest CCM Ambassador

February 15th, 2019 by

Earlier today, two great pillars of British motorcycling confirmed that they have joined forces, with the Bolton based bike manufacturer CCM Motorcycles using their presence at the London Motorcycle Show to announce twelve times FIM Trial World Champion Dougie Lampkin as their latest brand ambassador.

Lampkin will join four times World Superbike Champion Carl Fogarty in flying the flag for the Lancashire founded firm, which is fast approaching its fiftieth anniversary. Currently enjoying record orders for its iconic Spitfire model range, Lampkin was always keen to throw his leg over one of the handmade British machines since they were first launched, and instantly fell in love with both the original version and the Scrambler models when he got to ride them during a Belstaff photoshoot last year.

Already a keen collector of vintage and retro British bikes, Dougie has joined the queue with other CCM customers and is patiently waiting to take delivery of his personal Spitfire, but was delighted to collect the keys from CCM Managing Director Austin Clews for a pre-production Spitfire Six model at the London Motorcycle show earlier today. Dougie will assist with the final development of this model, with the production model that will be delivered to customers in due course reflecting his personal input.

Having already created his own signature version of the Spitfire, Fogarty was also on hand to officially welcome Lampkin to the CCM family. Both Dougie and Carl will be joining CCM Motorcycles at a number of events throughout 2019, as the Spitfire limited edition models continue their tour of the UK over the coming months.

Speaking about Dougie’s appointment, CCM Motorcycles Managing Director Austin Clews said: “I think it is fair to say that the Lampkin family name remains one of the most famous in motorcycling history even today, much due to their sporting success over the last fifty or so years. Dougie’s older cousin John actually rode for us in the Trial World Championship back in the eighties, so it is a proud moment for us to have the opportunity to welcome another member of this British motorcycling dynasty to help us reinforce the importance of us still making bikes in the UK today.”

Austin ended by saying: “Dougie’s own sporting successes speak for themselves, but equally he is a great guy who has a shared passion for what we are doing and has values and experience that are sure to benefit us as a brand as we continue to work on some new and exciting projects. However, for the record, we will not be making another Trial bike – anytime soon.”

Equally delighted to confirm his collaboration Dougie Lampkin stated: “Whilst I’m more widely recognised as a Trial rider, I am actually a fan of motorcycling in general. As soon I saw the first photos of the Spitfire it was love at first sight, so I was really happy when CCM agreed to loan us a couple of Spitfires for the photoshoot we did in the Scottish Highlands last year. Riding the bikes confirmed that I needed to own one and after a bit of Yorkshire bartering, not only am I about to become a CCM customer, but I have also become a CCM brand ambassador too.”

Dougie signed off by explaining: “I really love what CCM are doing with the Spitfire, and so do the British customers who have made the first few versions a complete sell out. I have been lucky enough to see what else they have in the pipeline in terms of new models, and there is plenty more to come out of the famous Bolton factory. With my own passion for old British bikes and the whole retro scene, I am confident I can add value to some of the new projects they have planned. But right now, my priority is to get as many miles in as possible on the pre-production Spitfire Six so I can give my feedback to the factory.”
