The Louis Moto story started 80 years ago after Detlev Louis founded a small motorcycle repair shop in Hamburg Germany. The shop quickly grew, boosted by the uptake of motorcycles in the post-war era, until in 1990 it became a European distribution hub for motorcycling’s top apparel and equipment brands.

Here are a few highlights from the Detlev Louis Motorcycle Gear collection.
