The authentic motorcycle experience


What is on?

French Retro Ride


Since I was a child, I’ve always been passionate about motorcycling and I was determined to make my passion my job. Over the years, I have had the opportunity to try my hand at many disciplines from motocross to supermotard, trial, enduro and road bikes. In 2016, I had the chance to make a father-son childhood dream come true by remodelling a motorcycle classic: the café-racer. The perfect symbiosis between motorcycling culture and a perfectly assumed lifestyle.

Since this adventure, I grew my passion for two wheels with the increasing desire to share this universe with as many people as possible. From simple motorcycling amateurs to experienced riders, French Retro Ride was born to allow you to hit the road and enjoy an authentic experience in the heart of two of the most beautiful regions of France – between cultural, archaeological and historical heritage – the Dordogne and Lot Valley.

According to one’s tastes and desire for renting a motorbike or enjoying the full French Retro Ride experience, you will get immerse in retro motorcycling culture the moment you walked in our unique showroom.
