Bought some parts from BSL Performance Ltd also known as Vtwinshops.co.uk back in March got delivery in May, thats 2 months from Chesterfield, UK to Dublin 300 miles max.

Anyway was due a refund of £250 and you've guessed it cant contact them and no refund.:banghead:

When you buy on-line its hard to know if you are dealing with a real company or someone ( we call them knackers or robbing *uckers) working out of the back of a van.

The web site looks professional but they still have my money.

So you have been warned BSL Performance Ltd are non-performers.

Did you pay by credit card or paypal? You have recourse if so.
I'm afraid there is no such company as BSL Performance Ltd registered at Companies House , so that's fraudulent representation or obtaining monies by deception....
And did they quote a VAT number on their invoice?

Hey Steve

Paid by credit card through paypal, the credit card company will re-inburse me eventually but it should be noted that paypal do not sanction the company using their services and will only entertain a complaint up to 60 days after the transaction.

So if people think that they are covered by paypal think again.

BSL strung me along on delivery dates until I was outsides paypal's complaints timeframe.


No VAT number was quoted on invoice or receipt.

By the way are Vtwinshops or Vtwincustom registered at Companies House.

Take it easy

No surprise there Steve.

I have an address for them, Robbing Bastard Lane, Chesterfield, is that the same as the one you have !!

Their web site is still up and running as i said looks pretty professional but from your info they are not a registered company.

How are you supposed to tell the difference between legitimate and bogus.

Thanks for the info.

Yeah Steve John Carr that's the man I was dealing with tried his mobile no answer. E-mail no answer, called his mother no answer joking.

Big Tony I live in Dublin Ireland on your maps that the little dot west of Britian getting to the rip offers would involve a plane or ferry to a different country England so google maps would give me their location but I would have no means of getting there.You big incontinent boys mean continent boys. Lol

Thanks for the advice

if it is John carr motorcycles he has been going for years and a few years ago spent money on improving his shop etc.... has had the shop there for as long as i can remember 10 years or more

Hi nfn.

Dont know if its the same guy but how many John Carr's are there in Derbyshire that run or ran a company called BSL Performance.

Does the John Carr that you know have his shop in Green Lane, Chesterfield ?

john carr motorcycles shop is 10 miles south of chesterfield , not saying they are linked but when i saw the guys name as John carr , and they were in the area , thought it may be something connected.

seems odd that all the names etc.. are together and close , why dont you visit the john carr motorcycles website , and call them and ask do they also have a compnay called BSL ? even if closed they may say yes we did but its now closed.

there a retail shop selling bikes etc... so would not think they would want negative feedback and unless people investigate the connections they get away with it !

Just to update on the 250 pounds owed from John Carr and BSL Performance.

Never heard from them again but was refunded by credit card company.
So it worked out for me but there are some amount of scammers out there.

There should be a name and shame wall on this site might help others from being robbed.

Take it easy
