In 1925 Bob Minion foundered a small shop on Canal street that sold bicycles, small motorbikes and even cars!
As the business grew, so did the premises, and in 1930 it moved to a corner shop on Park Street where it began to specialise in motorbikes.
Peter, Lionel and Robert Minion, Bob’s sons, took over the running of the shop in 1952.
In 1960 Bob Minions became one of the first Honda main agents in the country and the business changed to sell only new Honda’s and other makes of second hand bikes.
This change helped the business to grow yet further and it went from strength to strength, until eventually bigger premises were needed. In 1964 Bob Minions Ltd moved to their present location on London Road.
This enabled them to expand the workshop and have a bigger selection of bikes on display.
Gavin Minion, who had been working at Minions since 1977 (From the age of 16!) took over the running of the business with his brother Mark in 2000.
The brothers have made many changes since they took over including a recent re-fit to bring Bob Minions into the 21st century and frequent ‘ride outs’ that have become an integral part of the business.
The accessories department has also expanded and now has an even bigger selection of the best brands on the market, at competitive prices.
