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.

 

 

Wheelwise Engineering supplies wheels for UK “Milano-Taranto” team

“Milano-Taranto”

 

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.

 

Team Motori Di Marino

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).
