January 27, 2015 was our 60th anniversary.
Dunbar Euro-sports is a different kind of motorcycle shop. The business started in 1955 as G.C.Dunbar Motorcycle by George Dunbar. Dunbar opened as a European specialty motorcycle shop to serve enthusiasts who wanted an alternative to what was commonly available. He started selling and servicing such makes as BMW, DKW, Hercules, Moto Guzzi, Moto Morini, Sachs, Triumph, and Zundapp, with some brands coming and going from the market over the years, and some still sold and serviced today. Dunbar was always involved in different fashions of racing, from off-road to closed course competition. His shop sponsored the AAMRR Heavyweight Production Endurance Champion three years running (1975,1976,1977). by the late 70’s he became more involved in BMW twins race bike preparations. Around that time Tom Fournier was working as a mechanic at Dunbar’s and became interested in racing. Dunbar sponsored Tom, who raced sporadically in twin class. He expanded to vintage racing when that sanction of racing became more popular. The bike has been semi-retired and is on display at the shop, Tom even “takes it racing” now and then.
Tom, in addition to the vintage racing, widened his racing career to race the ever popular Ducati that was also being sold at the shop. After a few years of racing both BMW and Ducati, Tom became the mastermind of the FB4 Race Team. Some of his success includes, Tom winning the 1996 Lightweight Supertwin Championship at Daytona.
In the late 70’s Tom became owner of Dunbar’s changing the name to Dunbar Euro-Sports and eventually moving to the new location at 1600 Main St. Brockton, Mass. The shop now boasts a state-of-the-art showroom with plenty of room for premier European motorcycles, BMW, Ducati and EBR.
