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.
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!
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!”
Wheelwise Engineering is pleased to be supplying wheels for a British team taking part in this year’s “Milano-Taranto”.
So what is the “Milano Taranto”?
“Milano-Taranto” is a six-leg challenge on classic bikes to discover the best of Italy’s villages and countryside (as well as good food and, maybe, a little wine!). It commemorates one of the longest, most exciting, back-breaking motorcycle marathons, which ran until 1956. The 31st commemorative event (the first was in 1987) will be held from 2 to 8 July 2017 and at least 230 riders from around the world will take part.
The route goes along minor roads through Tuscany, Lazio and Puglia (and touches on Umbria and Abruzzo). The total distance is around two thousand kilometres, just to ensure eight to ten hours in the saddle each day for the courageous competitors.
Entering as a British team under the Motori Di Marino name, Jan-Willem, Les, Bjørn and John are busy preparing their bikes, ready for their summer adventure. The man in charge is Pietro Di Marino, the owner of one of the leading Italian bike specialists in the South (visit their website at dimarino.co.uk for more information).
