At Footman James we specialise in classic motorcycle insurance and vintage motorcycle insurance. That is why we understand the special bond that riders form with their classic motorcycles, especially if they have been restored and rebuilt as a project of passion. Footman James offers classic motorcycle insurance that is tailored with enthusiasts in mind; and because of this the cover provided for helmet and leathers has increased from £250 to £750 on all classic motorcycle policies. 

As lovers of classic motorcycles, we have links with many enthusiasts and their clubs and – as part of our commitment to them – we offer specialist rates for classic motorcycle enthusiast club members. We stay close to the classic biking community and get involved with some of the largest classic motorcycle organisations in the world, including the VMCC and the VJMC. To see the full list of clubs and associations that we work with, please visit our Clubs page.

I tried to get in touch with my existing insurance company, and was kept on hold for over 14 mins. So I went on line and within 6 minutes had a new up-and-running policy from Footman James. First class!!!

Have tried a couple of times in the past to put business the way of FJ, but up to now they have not been very user friendly.
However this time, things were different, found them attentive and easy to use, so the trend is in the right direction!

Service good, but seeing this was for a classic bike, the web site should show the classic models rather than just the modern ones.

The agent I dealt with a believe was learning the role, which I don't mind, but there was many breaks in the conversation where he put me on hold which dramatically prolonged the telephone conversation.
