Richard 'Loui' Llewellin
Known as ‘Loui’ to most of his friends and since the mid 90’s as ‘Louigi’ as his love of Italian bikes flourished. Louigi Moto was the team name when competing at club level racing and is now a limited company that has been trading for over 10 years. You can read the history page to find out a bit more.
Training as a master mechanic in Keynsham, Richard started RL Motor Services in 1986 which eventually evolved into Louigi Moto.
Richard has a colourful history in the custom car and hot rod scene having built and raced vehicles during the 1980’s and again built a reputation for helping to fix and tune cars for people in the scene. Indeed he is the topic of articles in many hot rod magazines of the time and was featured in a retrospective article in 2012.
Richard’s experience and passion is well recognised throughout the Ducati community both in the UK and abroad. He has built a company with an enviable reputation for fault diagnosis and from the earliest days of Louigi Moto, people have brought their problem machines to him.
What is apparent upon meeting Richard is his passion for engineering and his enthusiasm to help make your machine better.

Chris has worked at and with Louigi Moto for many years. Having set up CJS Racing, Chris was looking for premises to run a motorcycle Dyno centre. At the same time Louigi Moto was moving to bigger premises and so the two have come together.

Chris provides a personal service, exercising meticulous attention to detail in blueprinting and rebuilding engines.
He understands that each project completed is the pride and joy of its owner and consequently lavishes painstaking care in all aspects of the service provided, including extensive preliminary discussion with the customer over specification requirements.
