For those who may not have seen this on FaceBook:

To my many loyal customers & FB followers, this post has been coming for a while now and the first days of a new year seems as good a time as any.

Sharp Racing will be closing it’s doors in 2018.

What the last year or so of attempting to relaunch Sharp Racing and trying new ways to do business in the social media age (thanks Meri & Craig!) has show me is that I have amassed an amazingly loyal group of customers over the last 25 odd years.

This is something I, and all the people who’ve been a part of Sharp Racing incl Jon, Andrew, Narelle,Jacob and Paul, am very proud.

I would like to thank each and every customer for putting your money where your mouth is when it comes to buying Australian Made, you’ve been responsible for supporting not only the people mentioned, but a whole chain of other small businesses that supplied us over the years like Alverstoke Tube Bending, Sterling Chrome Plating, Yardmark Powder Coating and many more.

But, times are changing, and it’s time for me to move on to new challenges, so.......

IF YOU NEED SOMETHING, NOWS THE TIME!

This isn’t a ‘Closing Down, Everything must go!!! ‘ Type of deal, more a heads up to those loyal customers that if you’ve been thinking of adding to your Sharp collection, now’s the time!

I’m planning my last stock order over the next couple of weeks and only have limited components left, so first in, best dressed. Some items (eg Head Stem Front stands) are down to less than ten so will be all spoken for very soon.

I guarantee this is no Johnny Farnham style retirement sale, when I’m out of bits, I’m out of business, that simple!!

A big thank you again for all your support and keep an eye on the website for updates on what’s left.

Cheers,

Murray Sharp

G'Day, Murray Sharp here, I thought it was about time I explained to all my faithful customers what was going on around here! As of the start of April 2015, Sharp Racing no longer has a shop/factory front, instead I am moving on-line.
This also means you won't find our products in your local bike shop any more, now the only place to get a top quality bike stand is to buy directly from me, the manufacturer. Why? because times have changed and if you want to survive you have to change with them. 
For the last twenty odd years I have prided myself on being the only dedicated Motorcycle Stand manufacturer in Australia, not a general fabrication shop doing stands on the side, a business with one product to put all my attention on. This is the reason my stands are under every Australian Factory Race Team,  most leading privateers and are used in almost all professional workshops Australia Wide.
But, as they say in the classics, the times they are a changing!  so I'm changing too, rather than send my production offshore to compete with cheap imports, I'm simply separating the core parts of my business. From now on I will be handing all design, sales and distribution myself with the fabrication being done by a gun team of ex Sharp Racing people to my specs. Same people,same product, just race-tuned for the 21st century!
To help people understand a bit more of what I am up to I've assembled some common FAQ's, if this still doesn't help, please contact me,
  
FAQ:
  1. Have you closed down? Hell no! Just Moved into the On-Line world.
  2. Can I come to you? Yep, I'm still in Heidelberg VIC but as I'm working from home these days, its best to give me a call to arrange a time.
  3. How do I order your products?  go to the Order Here tab, fill in your details and I'll be in contact ASAP.
Thanks for your support of my products over the last 20 years and I look forward to helping Sharpen Up YOUR Bike for another 20!
Regards,
Murray Sharp
