AMD World Championships
If you hadn't heard we made it into the AMD World Championships at this years Intermot in Cologne, Germany. We have been working tirelessly to get our top secret build "Queen Anne's Revenge" ready for the championships. She has been entered into the Retro/Modified class so wish us luck. If you are going to be there look out for us and come and say hello!
Queen Anne's Revenge
The concept for this bike was based around an original Douglas motorcycle from many years ago. The Douglas motorcycle was of particular importance to the customer due to his family heritage and ties to the Douglas history. There were only a few elements of the design that the customer specified in order to achieve his ideal motorcycle. These elements had to be incorporated into the final bike but we had free reign over the rest of the design.
With all of this in mind, we were handed a rough computer drawing of what the customer envisaged as the final motorcycle. We then set about finding the donor bike. The journey of "Queen Anne's Revenge" began.
"Queen Anne" has been carefully and lovingly built by hand. All of the custom parts are hand made and hand finished by us, making this beautiful and exclusive motorcycle completely bespoke; truly one of a kind. From the custom frame by KYS to the one-off tanks by Mike Waters. The artwork finished by Tim Cox of TJC Design to the absolutely magical wiring by Rich at MWS, you just won't see another like her.
Queen Anne's power plant is a solid, first edition 1971 Yamaha XS650. She is blessed with state of the art technology and refined by her early 1900's styling that any discerning gentleman can appreciate. Perfect for a Sunday jaunt to the local country pub and dressed to the nines in your finest attire; even the birds in the hedgerows will turn their heads as you roll by.
Bristol Bobbers floating tanks
With our executive line of bikes we have developed a system to give the illusion of floating tanks - you can't see how they are attached to the motorcycle. We have used this system again on "Queen Anne's Revenge" keeping the clean lines to enhance the look of the tanks on the bike. The top of the tanks have been finished with ornate fleur de lis, but these are not brackets!
