About Mid Life Cycles

Mid Life Cycles is an established independent motorcycle sales, service, repair and parts & accessories business employing professional, qualified technicians and staffed by experienced enthusiasts with many years in road and competition riding.

We are committed to providing professional service and repair work and undertaking proven performance modifications on a range of classic, retro and modern bikes, including late-model Triumphs and Harley-Davidsons. And of course we sell and service the full range of classic Royal Enfield models and the exciting range of bikes produced by the fabled Italian manufacturer MV Agusta.

We are also the authorised Melbourne sales and service centre for Benelli motorcycles and Peugeot scooters and we restore classic motorcycles and build a range of custom bikes – café racers, bobbers, scramblers, dirt trackers and other specials that combine Art and Style. We come to this from many backgrounds and years of experience in the motorcycle and broader automotive industries.

Michael Catchpole

Michael Catchpole started out too many years ago on a Honda S90 (after watching his brother spend more shed-time than road-time with a 1950s BSA Single). A 1969 Suzuki T250 Hustler followed, then a succession of Seventies four-cylinder bikes, including a Honda CB500-4 in early cafe racer guise.

Michael works with customers to set the specifications for their cafe racer dream-bikes

After years of running cars in circuit racing and classic tarmac rallies, culminating in seventh outright in Targa Tasmania 1998 with Mike Darling in the Terror Seat, he returned to the bikes that he’d owned (or wanted to own) as a teenager, and began a collection of bikes that feature from time to time in promotions for the Mid Life Cycles repair and restoration services.

Mike Darling

Mike Darling raced and rallied Mini Coopers, winning a national motorkhana title back when hand-brake turns were a legitimate car-parking technique.

Mike moved on to fettling a series of race and classic cars, including a V12 Ferrari, and competed successfully in classic rallies including the Grand Prix Rally and Targa Tasmania. Mike brings automotive engineering skills and years of hands-on experience to the team.

Mike brings engineering and organisational skills and a focus on quality to the build team. Detail focused and a frustrated artist, he keeps an eye on longer term projects.

Charlie Hallam

Charlie Hallam has a strong pedigree in the motorcycle industry. Charlie has extensive experience in general service and repairs; high-level factory training from several major manufacturers (including MV Agusta, Triumph and Harley-Davidson), experience in engine diagnostic, tuning and rebuilding; and extensive work on high-performance, modified and race bikes. Before he joined Mid Life Cycles, Charlie was senior tech at Melbourne’s largest multi-franchise motorcycle dealership and is regarded as amongst the best in the business.

Being part of a renowned engineering family also helps…. Charlie draws on that knowledge and carefully-developed performance kits to extract a LOT more performance from Triumphs and Harleys in particular. Give him a call to discuss your go faster modifications.

We also look to a network of experts – painters, fabricators, polishers, platers and parts suppliers – who all contribute their bit to the motorcycle magic.
