The Seastar Superbikes Team

Dealer Principal

Vince Vrinten

Vince started Seastar Superbikes over 30 years ago. It was his passion for motorcyles that got him involved in the trade. This passion has extended to many other areas of the business but his focus is a continual drive to constantly build on customer service. His philosophy for the running of the shop is simple; "Treat as you would want to be treated". This philosophy has given him the satisfaction of making friends out of so many customers.

Julie has been running our clothing department for over 10 years and is in charge of selecting the ranges of clothing that we have on offer. Her product knowledge is second to none. Being trained by helmet manufacturers of all of the brands that we stock you can rest assured that you will walk out of our store with a helmet that is right for you and tailored to fit if required.

Dave (our silver fox) retired from the Airforce where he served his time as an aicraft technician. He joined our team over 10 years ago to look after our parts and accessory department. He has a lifelong passion for motorcyles that shines through with his in depth knowledge of all bolt on parts. His attention to detail is incredible - but then you would probably want that from someone that worked on your aeroplane !

Motorcycle Technician

Steve Cantle

Steve has decades of experience as a Motorcycle Technician. He has recently achieved Master Technician status with Harley Davidson. This is no mean feat as currently there are only 3 in the UK to reach this level of expertise. His heart and soul however are in the two brands that we represent so when he saw our most recent workshop vacancy he leapt at the chance to re-join our team. As with the rest of the workshop team, Steve partakes in the ongoing manufacturer training schemes.

Lisa Catchpole

Lisa pretty much runs our back office. Looking after the administration, payroll, accounts and all of the other areas that are needed to keep Seastar ticking. Only generally seen on the shop floor when she is chasing one or other member of staff for their paperwork.... that's a scary thing to watch !
