About us

Aprilia parts.nl is an initiative of Robbie Leerkes (1981). Already at age 13 he began tinkering with and riding on motorcycles. It started with a jawa moped, but soon after that many Honda's mt5 and Zündapp passed. When a cousin bought an aprilia af1 50 from year 1987 Robbie helped him with repairing, the enthusiasm for the Italian brand began....




After another friend bought an aprilia futura 50 model 1990 Robbie decided to purchase an Aprilia himself: a RS 50 model year 1993. Due riding and reparing aprilia 50cc's, some experience was collected. Within a short time the enthusiasm, experience and entrepreneurial spirit caused the first aprilia's to be traded.

In many cases a small spare part needed to be replaced before the mopeds were ready to be sold. Often occuring problem was the availability of spare parts. most of the time the parts were obsolete or delivery times where extreme long. After being tipped by a neighbor (lover of classic motorcycles) to go to Italy to purchase bike's and spares the link with Italy arised. Since 2001 a vibrant trade in aprilia parts has been created and succesfull ever since. First it began as a hobby, later, in 2004, the step was taken to make a business out of it.

 

Only in 2005 the first version of the website aprilia parts.nl went online: a static website with some brief information on some 50cc models with gears. In 2006, the second version came online; Due to ignorance of ICT and Website building this website didn't had the preferred result. Mid- 2008 the dicision was made to build a reliable, complete and up-to date website with a decent back-office. A back office system has been purchased, information collected and a webdesigner has been hired to achieve  the new website targets. The intention for the new website was the ability to search spare parts by vieuw exploded drawings. The latest (current) version is online since Mid July 2011.



After established as a start-up for five years in Voorst (Gelderland, Holland), aprilia parts (part of Leerkes Motofun) moved to a bigger and more convenient establishment in Twello (gelderland, Holland) mid-2009. Our current place offers a bigger warehouse and room for order handling.

Every day is used to complete the product range, website and satisfy customer needs. Aprilia parts strives to the widest possible range of products with the shortest possible delivery time, both new, used and aftermarket.

Whe are proud to announce that a complete new version of the website (easier to use on smartphone and Ipad, more aprilia models, even before 1990, and login possibilities for customers and B2B as well) is expected mid 2014. to be continued....
