TLM, the company
Lagelandseweg 66, Nijmegen (2017 - Present)
TLM was born out of pure passion for Moto Guzzi. The eponym and founder, Teo Lamers, was very active in the 1970s with driving on and improving old V7 models. The improvements and repairs expanded from his own bikes to those of friends and, ultimately, resulteed in searching and acquirng the correct parts in Italy. The hobby began to spin out of control and that's how Teo Lamers Motorcycles developed into Moto Guzzi specialist of todayi. As the years progressed and new models appeared, TLM was active in racing. The techniques that were developed in racing were incorporated in the workshop (e.g. Twinspark) and applied onto street bikes. The contacts with the Moto Guzzi factory were improving every time and Teo became a regular visitor.
From the early years TLM has always stood next to the importer, TLM was the proverbial thorn in fur. The new bikes were parallel imported and independently checked and serviced (sometimes even completely rebuilt).
When, in the beginning of the new millennium the factory was modernised, it was time to modernize the realtionship with the factory. Since 2003, TLM is therefore to be found as an official dealer on the lists of the factory.
Since the official dealership TLM has worked together with the importer (s) on the Dutch market. The digital rear entrances of the factory are wide open now and the most modern tools and equipment are available in the workshop.
Nowadays, you can find virtually all new and used models on display in one combined showroom. In the workshop all work is being done with love and attention for the bikes. The work ranges from finetuning and remapping injection systems to complete oldtimer restorations. Total parts stock increases still and the share of used parts is getting biggerl. Parts and bikes are finding their ways to new enthousiasts around the world.
In 2017 a long cherished wish has been fullfilled and all activities were brought together under one roof. The new location at the Lagelandseweg 66 in Nijmegen is more clearer, offers more room to put bikes on display and can be reached more easily. The coffee machine was brought along and is pouring fresh coffe, tea or chocolate enthusiastically, still. YOu're always welcome for a visit!
