Classic Bike Insurance specialists since 1983

At Footman James we specialise in classic bike insurance and vintage bike insurance.

We understand the special bond that riders form with their classic motorcycles, especially if they have been restored as a project of passion, which is why we offer classic motorcycle insurance that is tailored with enthusiasts in mind.

For instance, all our classic motorcycle policies come with cover for helmet and leathers up to £750 as standard.

We also offer limited mileage options (lower premiums for a low annual mileage) and laid up insurance (cover for your motorcycle and its accompaniments whilst it is kept in a locked garage or building).

As lovers of classic motorcycles, we have links with many enthusiasts and their clubs and, as part of our commitment to them, we offer special rates for a number of classic bike club members. For instance, if you are a member of the VMCC or VJMC, we will offer you unlimited mileage options.

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, the VJMC, the National Motorcycle Museum and the Sammy Miller Museum.

To see the full list of clubs and associations that we work with, please visit our clubs page.

Classic Bike Insurance, Tailored To You

Footman James understands the passion bike enthusiasts have for their pride and joy, and this is why we have developed FJ+ which allows you to build your policy with a number of different cover options.

FJ+ policy options include:

  • Agreed Value: agree the true value of your vehicle at the onset of your policy
  • Ride to Work: ensure that you are properly covered whilst riding to work
  • FJ Rescue provided by RAC: a breakdown service provided by the RAC
  • European Motoring 90: although European Motoring is added as a standard (35 days), you can upgrade cover for up to 90 days

To find out more information regarding these options, why not head over to the FJ+ page.
