“We ensure your ride is in the best possible condition”


Northern Performance is owned and lead by me, Max Nulley. I have been riding and racing a huge range of MX, Enduro, Supermoto and Road bikes for over 30 years. I’m both a qualified Motorcycle Mechanic and Manufacturing Engineer. Apart from a lifetime of building, riding and racing motorbikes, I also spent 13 years at the Ford Motor Company’s manufacturing plant intimately involved in most aspects of vehicle building. I’ve been working on car and bike engines since I was 10 years old, and have learned over the decades exactly what works on a bike and why. My diverse skill set, technical knowledge and customer focus delivers the highest quality, lowest cost, and most personalised service you’ve seen.<br /> Our expanding team only has passionate and experienced motorcyclists working within it.
