About Us

For over 20 years our family run business, based in the Austrian Alps, has specialised in vintage British motorcycles and spares.

British Only Austria is the culmination of a lifetime of motorcycle passion, obsession and commitment. Founded by Mark Upham in 1996 with his wife Christine, British Only Austria stocks thousands of parts for coveted British classics including AJS, Ariel, BSA, Matchless, Norton, Triumph and Brough Superior.

We hold all parts listed on our website in stock and aim to ship the same day so you will not be waiting long to receive that vital spare to complete your project!
