Does anyone have any photos of the Albany Motorcycle Spares shops in Coventry? There was the original one in Albany Road, one in Warwick Road and a later one in Binley Road. There was yet another one in Rugby. I believe all but the Binley Road shop closed in the late 60s early 70s with the Binley Road shop going on to sell motorcycles as well as spares. I believe this one went on into the late 70s perhaps even later.

The Albany Motorcycle Spares shop in Warwick Road was certainly still open in 1977 as I bought a lot of spares from there to rebuild my Triumph Bonneville. Bikes were also sold from the Warwick Road shop in the early 70's.

I think the bikes sold at Warwick Road were used ones. The main, bigger shop/showroom was on Binley Road. They sold many new bikes, especially Commandos. My biker mates and I used to portmanteauise the bigger shop into "Albinleys" so that we knew what we were talking about. Wink

Albinleys later became an organ/music shop. Don't know if it's still there.
