Welcome to our webshop
We are specialist in books and manuals on cars,
motorcycles, tractors, trucks, boats, engines and so on. We have shop manuals,
service manuals, owner’s manuals/instruction books, parts manuals, spare part
catalogs, technical books, tune up books, as well as historical books.
We store an outstanding collection of 200.000 books from year 1886 until today and this is one of the largest
collections in the world. Due to the sheer size of the collection we can offer
almost anything on the market. If you do not find what you are looking for in
the shop, we probably have it anyway, since we are just at the beginning of our
digitalization process. We constantly add new material to the shop, so you will
find new items every time you pass by our site. If you leave us a request, we
will search for it and come back to you promptly. If you have feedback or good
ideas for our website, please send us a note. You can write to us directly
using the "contact us" spot on the website.
Who are we?
Kosters Motor Bookstore dates back to 1963 when the then owner, Jens Olesen,
who was running a normal bookstore, saw a potential to buy up all the motor literature
he could find all over the world. Initially, the motor bookstore formed part of
the general bookstore, with placement on the first floor. Over the years the
collection grew so much that the premises could not accommodate the now very
large collection, and in 1985 he moved the motor bookstore to East Street 9 in Randers, Denmark.
During the entire period the motor store has been run
according to the policy that we never sell the last copy of a book, but the
customer can buy a reprint of it instead. This means that the collection
remains intact and that it continues to grow for the benefit of customers, who
can always get access to the very rare books which are used in connection with
the use, refurbishment and maintenance of various motor interests.
In 2011 Jens Olesen desided to retire due to age, and sold the
business to me.
I have continued to run the company with due respect
for the expertise built up over the years – with an ongoing modernization. First step was to renovate the physical shop in Randers, and next step was the online shop you are now visiting. We are in this respect very interested
in a dialogue with our customers so we can serve them in the best possible way.
So we would love to hear from you as a customer if there is anything you would
like we did in our new web-shop.
We also want to pass information to customers about
our efforts through newsletters and via Facebook. Feel free to subscribe to the
newsletter by signing up under "newsletter".
In December 2015 the bookstore was relocated to Vejlbjergvej 18, DK-8240 Risskov.
