Who We Are - Our History

The Company’s Origins

MCA (Aston) Limited goes back as far as 1935, when it commenced trading as Aston Auto Motors with premises located in the now non-existent area of Potters Hill in Birmingham.

It quickly established itself with the local motorcycle enthusiasts having dealerships for most of the popular British Motorcycles and later Scooters. The company later became involved in reproducing replacement spare parts and specialising in the manufacture of tools and extractors for numerous motorcycles and also for major motorcycle manufacturers in The Midlands.

I first became aware of them during my days as a buyer with BSA Motorcycles during the 1960’s. During the redevelopment of central Birmingham in the 1950’s, Aston Auto Motors’ premises were compulsory purchased and ceased trading.

The business was split into two separate companies, one being Auto Tools and General Engineering, the other, MCA (Aston) Ltd who specialised in the wholesaling of replacement spares and accessories to direct trade outlets only.

MCA (Aston) Ltd

The company was first registered in 1952 and at the time relocated to its existing site in Victoria Road, Aston, Birmingham.

We purchased the business in October 1986 saving it from bankruptcy and have expanded it significantly by concentrating on supplying suitable replacement spares and accessories for Classic British Motorcycles.

We have a vast stock range in excess of 25,000 product lines which makes us one of the largest wholesalers in this field with 90% of our parts being manufactured in the UK. We pride ourselves with "BUYING BRITISH" and supplying quality parts to our customers
