Shawn U'ren, Founder Owner

Position Sales, Marketing, Restoration and Custom Builds.

About Hi, I am Shawn U’ren from Cape Town, South Africa. I started riding bikes some 45 years ago and started early in my motorcycling life with prepping bikes to race and customize. Had a big love affair with sidecars as well as vintage and classic bikes. I started racing 50's and then 125's on track, which led to motocross and eventually, a 15-year stint riding competitive enduro like the Roof of Africa, Desert 1000 etc. Recent years have seen my love for Café Racers and old Classic Racing Bikes. I recently started competing in Classic Track Racing again and previously did Short Circuit for several years until I stopped due to injuries. I have since been drawn back to the track, racing Classic Superbikes on a 1989 Yamaha FZR1000.
