Kawasaki A1 High Piper


We have just added a photo of a Kawasaki A1 High Piper to our gallery, which has been restored by one of our longstanding clients to Showroom standard (with, of course, support from Wheelwise Engineering).

Here are some before and after photos which show the magnitude of the project.


One Sixteen

One Sixteen BMW R nineT

Inspired by the cafe racer culture of Britain in the 50/60’s, Chandlers BMW Motorrad of Brighton have created the One.Sixteen which uniquely showcases its interpretation of the BMW R nineT as a period club racer. They approached Wheelwise Engineering for the supply of the custom-built wheels and, despite the tight timescales, we were pleased to be involved in this very exciting project.

Chanders displayed the bike on the ‘Bikes at the Festival’ stand at the Goodwood Festival of Speed in June 2016, next to World Superbikes, MotoGP bikes and other manufacturers’ custom bikes. The One.Sixteen was by far the most photographed bike on the stand and BMW UK was extremely pleased with the result.
