Two more bikes for the Gallery!

One of our longstanding customers has just provided photographs of not one but two bikes that he has recently restored with the help of Wheelwise Engineering.

One is a lovely little Kawasaki S3A Triple.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The other is a Yamaha YR5 – this is quite a contrast to the S3A but just as appealing!

 

Two More Vintage Machines

The owner of the AJC and AJcette machines recently uploaded to the gallery has just sent us photos of two more vintage motorcycles that he has lovingly restored. He reminded us that these make a total of eight bikes that Wheelwise Engineering has provided the wheels for!

1922 Ariel V-Twin

This rare 1922 Ariel motorcycle is powered by an Abingdon King Dick (ADK) V-Twin 6/7HP (795cc) engine and was meticulously renovated over an eight year period.

 

1929 Model 18 Norton 490cc

The Model 18 was fitted with the Norton’s first and sportiest Overhead Valve (OHV) engine; this has a displacement of 490cc and a power output of 21 HP. The machine has a three-speed hand-shift transmission, front girder forks and drum brakes.

1976 Honda CB750 K6

 

Here is a photo of a beautifully restored Honda CB750 K6 that has just been added to the gallery.

The bike is finished in Candy Antar Red and is powered by a 736cc, transverse, straight-four engine with a single overhead camshaft (SOHC), linked to a five speed transmission and a chain drive.

It was fitted with a 16” rear wheel but now looks far more handsome with an 18” assembly supplied by Wheelwise Engineering.

Photos of AJS and AJcette Bikes

We have recently received photos of a couple of superbly renovated AJS bikes that were completed earlier in the year and for which Wheelwise Engineering provided the wheels.

One is a 349cc 1928 AJS K7 and the other is an “AJcette”; this started life with a side valve engine and was converted to an overhead cam configuration.

The camshaft is chain driven, with its distinctive cast-alloy case extending forwards to the front-mounted magneto.

Both bikes can now be seen individually in the gallery.

Yamaha AT1-C

We have recently provided wheels as part of the rolling restoration of a Yamaha AT1-C. A photograph of the bike has been provided by the owner and added to the gallery.

 

Kawasaki 500 H1-F

We were pleased to receive these photographs of a perfectly restored example of a classic Kawasaki triple 500 in the rarer candy brown /mustard yellow paint scheme, with wheels provided by Wheelwise Engineering.

Yamaha 650cc Dragster

We have just added a photo of a beautifully restored Yamaha 650cc Dragster to the Gallery. This is the culmination of many hours of hard work on the bike itself and, of course, the rebuild of the wheels by Wheelwise Engineering. The owner is understandably very pleased with the end result!

1923 Francis Barnett Zarabout

A great photo of a 1923 Francis Barnett “Zarabout” has just been added to the Gallery. This is fitted with a 147cc Villiers engine, has two speeds but no clutch or kickstart.

The owner, Chas, who was responsible for renovating it to its current first class condition, said; “Thanks for your help with the wheels, Steve, brilliant job!”

1974 Kawasaki S1B 250

We have added a photo of a superbly restored 1974 Kawasaki S1B to the Motorcycle Gallery, back, as the owner said: “looking like you would want it to look like on your drive when you were seventeen!”

Take a look at this!

Take a look at this rare Kawasaki W2TT Commander – a Japanese take on a BSA…. done properly! – restored back to showroom condition with, of course, wheels provided by Wheelwise Engineering.
