W8 SPIRIT

Kawasaki UK came too us in 2012 with a fantastic idea; could we freshen up one of their lovely, if rather "steady", W800 twin cylinder retro classics? Certainly, we said.

 

We designed three styles of bike; a roadster, a street scrambler, and a classic racer. Kawasaki opted to develop the scrambler design and delivered us an ex-press fleet W800. We then designed a series of scramblers with different finishes and paint schemes, with their Facebook Fans choosing which one we built by voting for their favourite. The overwhelming choice was the bike you see here - green, naturally!

 

The cherry on the cake was to have the finished bike take pride of place on the Kawasaki stand at Motorcycle Live, NEC 2012, which was an honour and a privilege.
