A testimonial for Iwis chains:

UK to India on a 1953 Classic British Motorcycle

In 2008 , author, Gordon May, travelled from the UK to the Royal Enfield factory in Chennai, India. He completed the 8,390 mile journey in under 7 weeks riding a 1953 500cc Royal Enfield Bullet.

Both bike and rider overcame many challenges en route, including a crash in the Baluchistan desert in Pakistan, which left Gordon trapped under the bike until rescued by a Baluchi truck driver.

Gordon used Sprockets Unlimited Iwis chains exclusively on the journey. On his return, he said,
"I used an Iwis Nano chain for the first 4,000 miles. It was suberb and I only had to adjust it once."

Once Gordon reached the Iranian desert, he swopped to an Iwis Megalife chain.

"The Nano chain was showing no visible wear and I'm sure it would easily have got me to Chennai. However, I switched to an Iwis Megalife as that chain is inimitably suitable for riding in dusty, desert type conditions. Again I only had to adjust it once. I can't praise these chains highly enough."

Gordon was very impressed by the inspiring work carried out by two UK charities that he visited in India; JBF and Wateraid.

"The JBF community project I visited in Delhi educates upwards of 70 street children who live in the most appalling slum conditions. The school gives them a real boost in life and it was truly uplifting to see how brilliantly they respond to some positive input, care and love."

He continues, "I also visited a Wateraid project in south India. Here I saw simple wells, water pumps and latrines that have transformed the lives of some of the very poorest people in India."

A 234 page book, which includes 8 pages of colour photographs is being released in December 2008, not surprisingly titled 'Overland To India'. The book will be available from the website

We won't go on and on because it sound like we are trying to blow our own trumpet but .....a couple of customers have even taken the trouble to write to the Old Bike Mart! This was a letter printed in the OBM back in April 2002, entitled 'Top Service'.

"I have recently had that almost extinct experience of good after sales service.
I purchased a rear chain for my 1959 Norton 99, at the last Stafford Show from Sprockets Unlimited. My Haynes manual stated size 5/8" x 1/4". When I came to fit it in early December it was too small (should have been 5/8" x 3/8"). Either the manual was wrong or a previous owner had fitted the later sprockets.
I contacted Sprockets Unlimited who immediately agreed to replace the chain. No quibbling, no arguing. 'Just post the old one back and we'll post the new size to you' they said. Four days later after posting the small size to them I received the correct sized one from them. Next day delivery too. A gem of a company. I will certainly use them again and I hope my experience will prompt others to do so. With service like this they deserve our custom." L Williams
