Venerable Welsh parts supplier/tuner Taffspeed Ltd. will close at the end of the month after 27 years of service to the worldwide scooter community. Ian Frankland is scheduled for heart bypass surgery, and his former employees will continue running the shop (and dyno) as “Welsh Scooter Parts.” The Taffspeed name will live on in Frankland’s “Taffspeed Special Products” which will still be available from the new shop.
Thanks for the tip, Matt, and best of luck to Ian and the new shop!

Taffspeed Limited is temporally stop trading due to my heart bypass surgery.
My former employes set up “Welsh Scooter Parts” & I had let them have use of my shop equipment & transfered the old Taffspeed phone number to them so that they would have the best start to their new venture.
It was agreed to trade out of my old Taffspeed premices for 12 months & pay a rental, however now after 2 months of using Taffspeed’s old premice they gave me a weeks notice of quiting & were out which left myself now having to pay the mortgage & other bills.
So now I am running TAFFSPEED via my Taffspeed web site.
If any persons purchases items other than from this web site there is no waranty or back up.
So Scooterists beware of what & where you purchase items as there are companies that are advertising & selling replicas of our exhausts which are made in the far east!
I FEEL VERY FOR THE BOYS AT WELSH SCOOTER PARTS.
ALL THEY DONE FOR IAN FRANKLAND WAS HELP HIM OUT THEY EVEN PAID SOME OF BILLS I WAS TOLD.GO BACK AND FORTH WITH HIS MAIL AS HE WAS SO ILL TO DO HIS SELF.HE FORGETS TO TELL YOU ALL THE GOOD THINGS THEY DONE FOR HIM. BEFORE HE PUT THEM OUT OF WORK AND HE DID NOT PAY THEM FOR THE LAST MONTH THEY WORKED FOR HIM.
AND NOW ALL HE DOES IS SLAG THEM OF.
ALL THE VERY BEST TO
WELSH SCOOTER PARTS
Taffspeed’s customer service before they closed was disgraceful & many customers were left out of pocket including myself personally to the tune of several hundred pounds.
Ian you are quite welcome to discuss with me further but as you & Karl Gettings did not seem to be interested at the time then I doubt so now??
