Letter from Honda regarding the closure of Metro and Jeffrey Motorcycles.

Post by Firefly_au on Fri Mar 22 2013, 18:12

Hi Folks,

Being a long term owner of Honda Motorcycles I seems to have made it onto their known customer list as having bought a vehicle or two from the now defunct businesses.

So I received a letter from them this week in which they recommend we visit their web site http//dl.honda.com.au or ring 1300 246 632 to find the nearest still active dealership. A cursory glance at the site gives details where to take various types of bikes ranging from scooters to Gold-wings. Hopefully this is of some help to Honda owners.

Cheers,
Nigel

Oh my God! I thought I heard a whisper on the grapevine that this had happened.
I haven't been on here for a while so I hadn't confirmed it.
It is so sad to read that Jeffrey Motorcycles has folded and as some of you have also written, a great loss to the eastern suburbs.
I found all the staff there to be so friendly... perhaps this was their downfall Crying or Very sad But at least they went out with a very nice reputation with a majority of the local public.

Ouch! Another local Icon bites the dust!

I even had my bike booked in for a service at Jeffrey Motorcycles the week after next. This must be the result of very tough times in the bike sales game! I will really miss these guys and the friendly service I always received from them when I needed it.

This is really bad news Who can I trust to look after my Honda now?

Cheers
Nigel

It is with regret that Members are advised that Jeffrey Honda Ferntree Gully is no more.
It is understood that the firm went into Liquidation on Thursdy 28 Feb and all the Staff were given notice. We have no more information at this time but if anything further does come to light it will be put up here for interested members.
Poor Reg Jeffrey will be spinning in his grave! Not only are many dedicated staff who were employed by him now out of a job but its the end of an era and the demise of a Brand icon especially to Goldwing Owners. When I bought mine Reg came down from his office and personally congratulated me on the purchase and escorted me to my new steed - you don't get that from too many places now. Today it a case of "gimmy gimmy the money now go away and don't bother me" and that's if you can get a sales person to even come and serve you!!
