Many folks simply aren’t aware of the size of the industry standing behind Classic, Vintage and Veteran cars and motorcycles, pundits reckon that turnover of companies supplying this area runs into billions of pounds per year. As interest in these vehicles has increased so has a cottage industry of small businesses repairing, servicing and restoring vehicles, many of which require fasteners with threads no longer manufactured.
Here at Leyton Fasteners, we specialise in finding just what you need, if we don’t have it in stock, then we usually know where to find it OR get it manufactured for you. As a result, we have been supplying the Classic vehicle industry for some years, gradually also supporting Tank and Tractor specialists. So, it was interesting to speak to Sarah at Milford Vintage following an order she had placed with us. Sarah was running short on specific fasteners (BA, BSF etc) and finally found Leyton, via our website. Milford looks after classic Healey’s, Jaguars and Alvis, as well as Veteran and Vintage vehicles, particularly Bentleys and Rolls Royce.
Most Fasteners companies are looking for large orders of standard stock, unwilling to put the time and effort into finding the obsolete or unusual threads required to support the pre-1970, mainly British makes. Leyton Fasteners is owned and run by Phil and Nigel, both Classic Car enthusiasts. We are at the end of the telephone to talk to you and find out what you need. We are interested in what you are working on and will do what it takes to ensure we can supply exactly what you need. Indeed, whilst stock is running low on BSF, BSW, BA & UNC, we know people who have the blanks and can manufacture, even small volumes! So if you want personal service from people who are interested in helping you find the right fasteners give us a call on 0151 355 8045 or email@example.com.
