just one teensie weensie thing. This page.

http://www.cfecustoms.co.uk/9273/9357.html

called"examples of our work."

The top pic of the rsv engined cafe racer, We designed and built the frame, the tank and seat unit were made 15 miles away from us. The owner then completed it.

Neither ourselves or the owner had even heard of cfe customs until 2 days ago, when this was bought to our attention.

i have tried phoning the contact number but just get a continous tone.

the truth behind cfe customs
 
After paying these bastards to build me a frame, 850 infact! thats what their going price was on ebay! & then after being sent many pics and details, saying they had done many featherbed frames to suit many frames I was made to believe that they were a proper bike building company and went on with it! Anyway a few weeks later i gets a phone call, can you bring your engine & yokes & swingarm down, so I did! After visiting them & seeing how far they got on with my frame I went home thinking it would be ok but after thinking hard I realised they had no way built featherbed frames before! they had told me they only just got a pipe bender "that made me think! so I got a little pissed off & I went back for my stuff & asked for my money back, they said 2 weeks to give my money back because they were skint! I asked what about the money I payed for frame? "Oh eerrm spent it on a jig & stuff" obviously they were lying from day one! So I'm still waiting! Continious phone calls to the buisness number & mobile, still no answer! sent txts still no reply! Been there to the unit, no sign of them! guess they done a runner, but I've got my paypal & my card company fighting my case! So hopefully trading standards & court should sort it out! Watch out peeps!!!! keep clear.

Been there before but not with this company - a more well known business - still waiting on my parts being returned - reckon I've lost the money but will need to wait for plod to finish their investigation before I get anything

Beano 16-03-2012 05:48 PM

So does that mean you know about them then? I also done research and also found they were using more than one eBay account aswell! Found they were under the names, macandlesshybrid, lancsmanx, hooleysbikes and cfe customs! Oh and banzai bikes! Makes u wonder why? Dodgy bikes and what not!!

devon-tony 16-03-2012 07:37 PM

if this is true, then I have never understood why people try and pull these stunts, the bike world is incredibly small.

XJphil 17-03-2012 01:20 AM

Thats why at 49 year old im very cynically mistrusting of the expression 'by bikers for bikers'.......

So what does the CFE stand for in CFE Customs, Cant Fucking Engineer i guess if its true they be a rip off,
Reminds me of a mate of mine who had what he called a Senior moment the other day, I said blimey mate you are so last year, its called having a CRAFT moment these days ... Cant Remember A Fucking Thing!

dracken1 29-03-2012 11:31 PM

i was pissed off when i saw them claiming our frame as their own. And after not getting a ring tone on the number. I phoned Chris at unity to see if he had heard of them, as they close to them. Chris told me that he (it seems as if its just the one person) called into unity to introduce himself and cfe customs, and hoped they would not feel as if he was competition.
Unity sell classic british bike parts. They do not build frames. (we build Unity's manx frames)

Chris just laughed and thought "tosser":thumbsu:

Ben6moto 30-03-2012 08:08 AM

Cfe "cant fuckin engineer"
 
If only I could have worked them out a little sooner!! They also made me laugh when they told me they were Unity's main supplier! HAHA
Where are they now is the question? The guy at cfe told me that reason for not being able to get through is because the telephone line is fucked outside!! but when I asked again when I went there he told me another story saying he was sick of people phoning them all the time so he unplugged the phone! Why is this I wonder?? All the people he had off are trying to contact them? or people waiting for their frames to be built?? Oh hang on apparently they have done a runner aswell! I rang someone I knew close to them that is renting an unit from the same landlord, he said they owed rent or something & had done a runner!!! Tossers!!

droid 30-03-2012 09:09 AM

I guess Brad the Bastard won't be back on here again then?


:rolleyes:

Ben6moto 30-03-2012 09:28 AM

cfe
 
I guess he wont! I just dont understand why they have robbed me of 850! Brad seemed a very helpfull & switched on guy when it came to frame building! but I guess if he was involved with Nick & Barry in the buisness then he wont be on here! unless he's man enough to explain why they took my money & to explain whats going on...:thumbd:

Cunts Fulla Excrement..................by the sound of it:thumbd:

brad the bastard 30-03-2012 11:02 PM

nearly all the dissisions were handled by nick not barry or myself, i have never taken money from any customer, i never actually dealt with any customer, i had next to no say in it all, i have taken next to no wage at all through all of this yet it's my name ruined, a name i have spent the last 28 years building up, i also had nothing to do with the website but did advise over using pics that wernt our own builds. nick is no longer in bike building anymore, i have no contact with him. cfe customs no longer exists, i am now left with trying to rebuild my own name if that can ever be done, shit tends to stick, i suppose you learn the hard way, i also got burned

CFE Customs
 
Well maybe youve been burnt by involving yourself with idiots Brad but ive been burnt in my pocket! Where 850 of my hard earned cash wash taken from me to build a frame that I was told that you had built before & that it would be a straight forward job!the date of payment "15th Nov 2011 to Barry Emerson Christmas 2011 went by & I was not contacted untill I phoned time & time again, then I think I was just told lies to keep myself happy! Good job I came to get my Engine, yokes & swingram...maybe they would of been taken aswell?! I was informed yesterday that the company dealing with my problem will most probablly take CFE customs to a small claims court & that I provided enough evidence for the case & that they are happy to proceed! How would you feel if 850 was taken from you? Not a very nice feeling i tell ya!!:mad:
