Hesketh Motorcycles have designed an exclusive new bike to celebrate 40 years of the James Hunt F1 victory driving a Hesketh car in Holland in 1975.
Entrepreneur, Paul Sleeman, the new owner of the classic marque, said 24 will be built at the Hesketh factory in Redhill, Surrey as a tribute. A team of expert engineers, led by Sleeman, build the new model in excellent conditions. The factory, while not large, has space to store and build the Hesketh 24.
Nearly all parts are hand-made and often to the design requested by the buyer. The dedicated team are mainly locals.
The British-made Hesketh 24 was unveiled at Goodwood’s Festival of Speed last June. A year later 17 of the 24, were sold at the price of about £35 thousand each. More sales are on the horizon.
The prototype model is now being enhanced with new ideas and technology by Sleeman and co-designer Iain Miles.
