History

Casbolts was established as a business in 1932 when Roy Casbolt, a motorcycle salesman found himself without work in the depression of the 1930s. Roy’s family ties to two wheels went back to the late 1800’s with his father and uncles being bicycle shop proprietors.

From simple beginnings, Casbolts have emerged to be one of New Zealand’s leading motorcycle dealerships, having stocked several British and Italian motorcycle brands from the 30’s to the 60’s. Honda was taken on in 1962 which makes us New Zealand’s oldest Honda dealership, having sold and serviced Honda motorcycles for over 45 years. Today we are a premier ‘Honda Red Carpet’ dealership and sole authorised Ducati dealer for the South Island.

All of our staff own and ride motorcycles and we pride ourselves on customer service. With over 75 years of trading behind us, Casbolts have become a Christchurch institution.
