Alex's '47 WR




Spent a nice sunny afternoon in Whitstable on Friday shooting Alex Zambinski's custom '47 WR. Building this bike has been an eight-year labour of love: Alex started with just a set of WR cases when he was the tender age of sixteen and it took six years to get the machine running.

Twin Amals with a homemade manifold; stroked engine; lightened, polished and ported top end. All mods were was done in the family garage. This thing will do 86mph... 100mph very soon with more tweaking.

No, this motorcycle does not wear vintage style tyres. For one very good reason: it's properly quick.

Great bloke, great bike... coming soon in GKM.

Now THAT is a good looking motorcycle. Loving the offset headlamp and the twin AMALs.

As above, properly cool, nothing better than tyres that actually work.
