Ride’em, don’t hide’em !

The idea of working on British bikes started early for brothers Paul and Herve Hamon. Their first bike was a Royal EnfieldWDCO ex-forces machine found in a barn. And that’s where a lifelong passion for British bikes began.This first contact roughly coincided with the birth of Brittany Ferries in the 70’s. It was from then on considerably cheaper,quicker and more fun to take the ferry from Roscoff to Plymouth than to go to Paris to get parts. So they regularly crossed theChannel and set out on various voyages of discovery all across the UK in search of parts and old bikes to restore.Realizing quite quickly that the standard electrics on British machines left something to be desired, the idea was born tocreate a new product that would change things for the better. The first Alton generator was on the drawing board. In the earlydays Paul worked on the first Alton alone but today the company employs 6 staff members and exports its productsworldwide.British bikes are special, full of character, charm, offering a riding experience that no modern bike can equal. They may not bethe fastest machines on two wheels but once you’ve got the bug, it’s the start of a lifelong love affair!But they are also stubborn, temperamental and demanding… who hasn’t found themselves stuck on the pub car park aftereveryone else has long gone – no lights, or no spark, flooded motor.Kicking up a big twin can be hard work too – what was fun at 20 isn’t at all the same thing at 50…Alton designs a range of products, generators and electric starter kits, that help you overcome the little eccentricities of yourmuch-loved British motorcycle.Based in Brittany, we design, manufacture and export our products worldwide directly or through our network of authoriseddistributors.
