About Us

Built with 40 years of precision engineering knowledge, we are the place to buy you Honda CBX1000 and DOHC parts. The experience gained has been put to good use to ensure the Super Bikes of their day can now continue into the future for further generations to ride and enjoy.

With a network of  Partners and good friends who share our passion, we are able to support a one-stop shop to restore your bike back to superb condition, either as a daily ride or a concourse investment.

Our in-house specialty is rebuilding engines and carburettors for CBX1000 and DOHC range from 1970’s & 80’s. We will be happy to discuss your needs and requirements. Our goal is to get your motorbike back on the road for your enjoyment.

We have the capability to manufacture many parts and will work with you to meet your needs. Sharing this capability with other owners means everyone benefits for the good of generations to come.


Cary Knapton started his career as an indentured Instrument Maker. Working in the aerospace and nuclear power generation sectors. During these years he supported many projects with clients such as Rolls Royce aero engines & BAe Systems.

Having since owned 3 engineering businesses, he & Karen retired to their holiday home in South Africa in 2010. This is where they caught the CBX & CB1100RC addiction. Becoming a hobby initially, during this time he fought many wrecks and restored them back to their original condition. More than 20 CBX1000 & CB1100R personal projects passed through the workshop during this time. Cary spent many years working alongside Chris Magri the leading CBX guru in SA who has owned a CBX since 1978 and worked on CBX's full-time since 1985.

After returning full-time to the UK in 2019, Karen & Cary created the Super Sport Shed to share the knowledge and ideas with fellow enthusiasts. In turn for others to share their knowledge and passion back.


In September 2023, Leo joined us at The Shed and is working alongside Cary. Leo brings with him enthusiasm and a passion for all things Super Sport. He will eventually be the face of the workshop and day to day running, allowing Cary time to further develop the online Parts Shop. (He is also our son in law, and thus further enforced the family element of the business.)

What was once a hobby has now become a business but with the remit to ensure a fair price with excellent quality. We supply a large range of parts, some old and some new for the CBX predominantly.

With our significant past experience in the engineering and manufacturing sector, we have and are able to design, copy and manufacture new ‘old’ parts for your vintage motorcycle.

With our global network of partners, we can bring your project back from the barn or storage to sit proudly in your garage or even the living room!
