2015 PROJECT


 

Royal Enfield 535

This bike underwent a classic full race fairing modification.

We had to fabricate new brackets to hold the fairing on and cut the fairing to shape to fit the bike, brackets were welded to the frame and the fairing re fitted before being removed for paintwork by BSA Body Repairs, once painted everything had to be re fitted.

We commissioned this Honda SP1 streetfighter for a customer of ours, the motorcycle had been stored for a number of years.

The tank, rear tail unit, front mudguard, rear hugger and swinging arm were painted by Elite panelcraft
We sourced and fitted a smaller better looking belly pan, painted the gold radiators black, fitted 722

Renthal bars and extended all the necessary cables to give it a nicer riding position. We also polished various parts on the bike to match the Harris high riser pipes that we had polished by Hampshire platers.

The bike had a full service, MOT and some brand new Michelin pilot road tyres ready for the road, we are pleased to say our customer is more than pleased with the result!

SUZUKI GSXR1000 K5
When i purchased this bike it was standard condition, i removed the plastics, re routed the cables and wiring, fitted the big bars and remounted the clocks. I removed all of the aluminum off the rear of the bike bike and had it polished, the plastics were also painted. A new seat was made, different gearing was put on, various custom parts made and fitted. The bike then went to Dyno tech to be remapped and now produces just over 160 BHP at the rear wheel. I tested the K5 to Assen and back what a superb ride, we then had a write up and photo shoot about the bike which was featured in the Salisbury journal, it has now been sold to a very keen customer!

‘Vince prevett, owner of VP Motorcycles based on Sarum business park, has just completed designing and building his latest custom motorcycle.
Starting out as a K5, Vince has modified and re designed the Suzuki GSXR1000 to produce a unique one off naked bike that not only looks great but has performance to match.
There is a warm welcome for all bikers what ever you ride so make VP Motorcycles the place to go for all your motorcycle needs!’

We had an R1 2003 Street fighter for a customer while he was out in Afghanistan. The bike was given a Suzuki GSXR 750 K7 back end, a custom made seat, new nose cone and other modifications.

YAMAHA TZ 250
006

We had been asked to re commission this 1970’s Yamaha TZ 250G road race motorcycle for a customer. It will be used, when finished for parade and events and originally came from a museum in America. To hear this motorcycle run for the first time in 15 years was fantastic and a pleasure to work on.
