Hi I am Eddy Cota. Better known as Little Eddy, don't Know why?
I have been a mechanic from a very early age. And my love for motorcycles and racing made me go the extra mile in learning how stuff works. I finished my Motorcycle course in 2002 and decided that I want to carry on and get a Degree in Engineering. And, all that hard work paid off when I finally graduated with a Distinction in Mechanical Engineering (B.Sc., M.Sc.) from University of Hertfordshire.
I have served time as a PHD ** Harley Davidson Master Technician and Custom Builder in a few countries around the world for the last 19 years until 2017. And yes, I have changed countries and dealerships. But, still stuck to the Harley Davidson Brand gaining Recognition from Harley Davidson University USA, Germany, and United Kingdom.
In 2017, I decided that I wanted to do something different for myself without the stress of deadlines and target etc from the dealerships. And here is what I did. I opened a open-plan motorcycle workshop that runs purely on recommendation and quality of work and a biker friendly environment.
I am a Lecturer in Motorcycle Engineering and a Professional Engineer. I am also a Advance Automotive Engineering Member at the Institute of Motor Industry (IMI) and a Assessor, member of the Institute of Engineering and Technology (IET). And a STEM Ambassador for South East England.
So, if you don't see me working or at work. It means, I am either Teaching, Assessing or Travelling.
Please feel free to stop by for a coffee or a chat.
Don't forget to book an appointment in advance. As I may not be around if you just rock up.
First to join me was Amber, who I like to call trouble.
She comes in to fix the IT and Administration side of the business. You will see her float in and out and she is here most Saturday working behind the desk. Ever fancy a cup of tea or coffee and a biscuit on Saturday pop down say hi and she will make you a lovely cup of tea and assist you with Parts.
Recently to join me is Liliana. A female mechanic in the business with a lot of passion and drive and skills.
You will see her in the shop when she has some down time on her hands, servicing your motorcycle and assisting with parts and general inquiries.
