Our Story

Classic Transfers was founded in 1998 by Bob and Marcia Derrick. Bob’s enthusiasm for early Motor Cycles and his artistic skills found him producing artwork for unobtainable transfers in his lunch hours and any other spare time he could find. This culminated in Bob and Marcia creating Classic Transfers to offer transfers for all classic motorcycles, to everyone. Bob was a perfectionist and his legacy is being carried on by Adam, their Grandson who endevaours to work to the same exacting standards.

In early 2021 Marcia made the decision to take a well deserved retirement after her involvement for over 20 years. Later this year, we were able to take the next steps towards growing the business and moving to our new office, along with employing our first member of staff, Trudi.

Our aim has always been to provide restorers and enthusiasts alike with transfers and decals made to the highest attainable standard. We hope you enjoy scrolling through our extensive product list, and hopefully helping you find the correct transfers to add the finishing touch to your restoration.
