The Wheels In Motion.
From flag pole fox tails to Lambretta exhaust pipes, Beedspeed has everything a scooter enthusiast could ever need for the road. The story of Beedspeed has been the ride of a lifetime, and taking the business onto the next leg of its journey was an adventure we couldn’t wait to buckle up for.
Founded in the 1980s as a simple stall visiting scooter rallies, Beedspeed opened its first shop in Grimsby in 1983, quickly becoming extremely popular amongst local scooter enthusiasts. Right from their early days they’ve worked to cater to the scooter community, providing space in their store for scooter clubs to meet up.
Beedspeed developed a reputation with scooter enthusiasts across the country by taking their stall to National Scooter Rallies around the UK. The company decided to capitalise upon this nationwide appeal in the early 2000s by launching their first website. In no time at all, Beedspeed was shipping parts from the likes of Lambretta and Vespa to all corners of the globe.
Shortly before we started working with Beedspeed, the business was purchased from its founder by current owner Dan. He saw the need to bring the business forward with cutting edge e-commerce. But as a business with 15,000 individual products, and an ageing infrastructure, Dan saw the need to transform more than look and feel of the website.
