The DREAM pit stop for motorcyclists travelling from far and wide - Legacy 85 is Trader of the Week.

Located in Three Legged Cross, Legacy85 is home to a biker themed shop and café, and has become a popular venue for travelling motorcyclists. 

Owner Mark Gordon said: “We have motorcyclists visiting from all over the country and even some from abroad.”

The Christchurch resident channelled his long-standing passion for motorbikes by launching Legacy85 in 2017.

He said: “I’ve been motorcycling for years. I spent most of my working life in the Middle East and riding there.

Bournemouth Echo:

“I was interested in doing something I really enjoyed. I think everybody’s dream is to have a job they really enjoy, and this isn’t a job for me it’s a hobby.”

Mark was keen to create a pit stop for travelling motorcyclists, and a place for them to socialise.

He said: “We wanted to have a café for motorcyclists to meet up and talk.

“The idea was to have a social destination. When you jump on a motorcycle you’ve got to know where you’re going.

“They can meet up, have a chat and a cup of coffee, and then head off on a ride.

Bournemouth Echo:

“People can sit outside too, and on sunny days it’s great.”

Visiting bikers can also browse the Legacy85 shop which sells an impressive range of vintage inspired motorcycle clothing and accessories.

The products are mostly British and European designed and manufactured, but Mark also stocks selected international brands.

He said: “Our selection of clothing is a lifestyle choice, not high street fashion, but a nostalgic revival of a cultural style.”

The venue has continued to attract bikers from far and wide.

Mark said: “We have people come from all over.

Bournemouth Echo:

“It’s very satisfying to know that people enjoy visiting us from afar.”

Legacy85 has also remained heavily involved in charity work, with Mark hosting various charity rides across Dorset.

It is also set to be a sponsor for the Distinguished Gentleman’s Ride on May 22, where up to 500 motorcyclists will ride around Bournemouth and Poole to raise awareness of prostate cancer and men’s mental health.
