Classic Motorcycle Insurance specialists for 30 years

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.

You can be sure that by arranging your insurance through Footman James your classic motorcycle, from a BSA to a Triumph, will be covered.

At Footman James we understand that classic bike enthusiasts want to make the most of their classic bikes. That’s why we can now offer a range of additional cover options, which allows customers to pick and choose cover to suit their particular needs. The cover options are collectively called FJ+ and includes options such as breakdown, nil deduction salvage retention and ride to work. So whether a customer wants to ride other classics, hire their bike for weddings or wants to participate in track days we’ve got it covered!
