Good news today: we have two brand new galleries up on the site at the museum page. A while back we had some pictures of our Hesketh, now the full gallery is up! It is one of our most rare, if not the most rare, motorcycles. Less than 200 of the V1000 were created in the early 80’s, this is the only one that made its way to Sweden. Here it sat unsold for years before ending up in the hands of collectors. Because of this it only has 179 miles on the meter and is completely original from the factory.
We’ve been working on getting all of our bikes out to the museum, we have over 30 of them out there now! This also means that we’ve freed up a lot of extra space for parts and our work area so we’re in the middle of reorganizing everything.
Now, we received a special bike a while back, over a year ago, as it was then we didn’t have a good space to put it and had it delivered directly to storage. This mean we never had a good chance to take pictures of it and therefore never announced it here. It”s time to change all that now! Check out our Hesketh V1000, probably our rarest bike together with the Kawasaki Mach III (there were a lot of Mach III made but only few are still in good condition while most V1000 are well preserved). Only 149 were made in the original production run, this is one of the few that made it out of Britain. It only has 175 miles on the meter and hasn’t been tinkered with from the factory, even have the original manual and key tag.
We’ll have more pictures as soon as time allows, until then have a good time and stay sunny in the autumn drizzle!
