About Us

Welcome to Classic Accessories (UK). We own the 'Classic Boot Racks' website, and are the first choice of supplier for high end classic and specialist car accessories. We are dedicated to supplying the widest range of premium quality products, coupled with the highest levels of traditional customer service.

Our History

Our manufacturing business was originally founded in 1965 by my late grandfather George Lyle, and has come a long way from its humble beginnings in Streatham, South London. Initially the company was established to produce motorcycle accessories, however in the 1970's it grew to serve wholesalers both in the UK and Western Europe with an ever increasing array of products under the 'Lylestyle' brand. In addition some of our products were also marketed under license using the genuine 'Suzuki' and 'Britax' brands. My father took over the running of the company as chairman in 1980, and he went on to oversee the diversification of the business into car accessories. It was during the 1980's that the classic car accessory side of the business flourished with the collaboration of the largest classic car club in the UK.

Now over fifty years on, we are known as 'Classic Accessories UK', and we trade worldwide from our base in a rural area of England, having moved away from South London over 20 years ago.

We are unique in that we have accumulated over 50 years worth of specialised tooling and equipment, not to mention the technical experience acquired during that time. This has given us the capability to reproduce cherished items from the distant past, such as the 'low level folding' luggage rack for the 1954 MG TF, the 'AMCO' style luggage racks from the 60's, and the works style Jaguar XK E type luggage rack also from the 1960s. Indeed it is these rarities that are our speciality.

Should you choose to become a customer, then we hope you will enjoy using our products as much as our team enjoy producing and supplying them. If you have any questions or would like to make any comments, please don’t hesitate to contact us.
