Here is an immaculate example of a Yamaha RD250C that was close to the heart of the restorer – he had a new one in silver when he was 17 and restoring the bike (with the help of Wheelwise Engineering and other suppliers) brought back fond memories!
We have just received some before and after photos of a Yamaha RD250 from one of our longstanding customers.
Before, it was painted gold but had been sadly neglected and defied the saying that “All that glitters is gold”.
After being beautifully restored, it is now a rich blue!
We have just been sent a series of photographs of a Kawasaki Z1B that has been painstakingly restored for the original owner who purchased it new in 1975. How many Z1s are still owned by the original keeper?
The bike was taken off the road in the 80s and an unsuccessful attempt was made to restore it in the 90s. The project has recently been taken over by one of our longstanding customers and, with help from his network of suppliers (which includes Wheelwise Engineering, of course!) and a lot of searching for parts, it now looks as good as new.
We hope you like the photograph as much as the owner loves his bike back from the dead!
Here is a great photo of a beautifully restored Husqvarna two-stroke CR 500 motocross bike with wheels provided by Wheelwise Engineering.
This has been described as a two-wheeled rocket with outstanding power, great suspension thanks to the Ohlin shock absorbers and certainly not for novices!
The photo is now in our Motorcycle Gallery.
Here are some pictures of a beautifully restored 1972 Kawasaki Z1. It was purchased from the original owner in Texas and was the first large capacity (it has a displacement of 903cc) four-cylinder production motorcycle from Japan to use a double-overhead-camshaft system.
The restoration included sourcing some NOS flanges and having work done on the vacuum take-offs fixed to the cylinder head.
The wheels were built by Wheelwise Engineering – a close-up of the front wheel is shown below.
