Let’s introduce ourselves, what is Gilex?

In 1988 Gino and Lex took over "Joop van Wees Motoren" which was an established motorcycle shop (for over 30 years) in the centre of Amsterdam.
They called the company: “Gilex”.

In 1989 we started importing motorcycles and parts from the U.S. as one of the first Dutch companies. Within a couple of years Gilex grew to become one of the biggest motorcycle shops in Amsterdam.

In 1998 Lex continues to run the business by himself and takes over the “René Cortie Motoren”. That company was a big player in motorcycle parts. Because of that we have a large stock of parts from motorcycles built from 1975 until this day.

In January 2001 we took over the activities of “Pro Carbon” and started importing special motorcycle parts. Currently our focus is: maintenance of motorcycles, sales of occasions and parts, search U.S./Japan/Europe for importing specific Race or Classic motorcycles on request of customers and scooter rental.

If you have any questions, we’d love to answer them.
