about us


Hello, I'm Austin Parkinson

Austin Parkinson driving a DeDion Bouton through the leafy lanes
I have been a De Dion-Bouton owner for over forty years with my 1904 twin cylinder 10hp type W with rear entrance tonneau and have taken part in the London to Brighton Veteran Car Run many, many times and my first run was in 1973.

As a keen member of The Veteran Car Club of Great Britain together with my wife and family we have used the twin cylinder on many rallies over the years and have therefore got to know the De Dion-Bouton engine very well.   I have also owned De Dion-Bouton tricycles, quadricyles and a 1900 vis a vis.

The vis a vis was used by my wife on many London to Brighton Runs.   We have had several other veteran motor cars over the years but still regard the De Dion-Bouton to be the best!

In 2000 I began to look into replacement parts for these vehicles and since then have been supplying British made professionally manufactured replacement parts for early De Dion-Bouton  motors  mainly covering the years 1898-1904 including tricycles, all single cylinder cars and 10 and 12hp twin cylinder cars.

I hope you will enjoy perusing this site where you will find pictures and details of all available items.   The majority of these items can be despatched to you straight off the shelf thus avoiding the frustrating wait for individual parts to be manufactured.

Please contact me via email, fax or if you prefer to chat, please telephone me and I will be happy to discuss your requirements.
