Hesketh Motorcycles 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, offers space to store and build the Hesketh 24.
Nearly all parts are hand-made and to the design requested by the buyer. The dedicated team mainly locals.
The British-made Hesketh 24 unveiled at Goodwood’s Festival of Speed last June. A year later 17 of the 24, sold at the price of about £35 thousand each. More sales on the horizon.
The prototype model is now being enhanced with new ideas and technology by Sleeman and co-designer Iain Miles.
