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.
