Both Donald Campbell and his father, Malcolm, occupy a unique place in British history and that of Land Speed Records; Donald’s death in Bluebird in 1967 on Coniston Water made headlines around the world, not least because his crash at 300mph was televised. In a sense, as Bluebird flipped in the water, it was a salute to the end of a golden age of speed. Donald Campbell was the last of a rarified club, a generation which embraced and danced with speed, taking risks that would be unthinkable today. When, in 1925, Malcolm Campbell became the first man to travel on land at over 150mph in a Sunbeam, he wasn’t even wearing a seatbelt.The likes of Malcolm and Donald Campbell, JG Parry-Thomas, John Cobb and Henry Segrave took on the…

the future of harley-davidson

Harley-Davidson Streetfighter PrototypeHarley-Davidson Custom PrototypeHarley-Davidson Pan AmericaFirst is the introduction of a 500cc to 1250cc middleweight platform of bikes which are aimed at three market sectors—Custom with a 1350cc model, a 975cc Streetfighter and the company’s first adventure touring motorcycle, the PanAmerica 1250. Now, at this stage we only have mock ups of these models but the first thing to strike us about the custom model is, er, doesn’t it look like an Indian Scout? Except it’s not quite as pretty as the Scout. Yes, it’s water cooled because, like or not, air cooled Harley engines will become the thing of the past, even if that is one of the few things not mentioned in the hefty ‘More Roads to Harley-Davidson’ plans.The Streetfighter is an effort to take on that…

rat rod e-bikes

Each Rat Rod E-bike is custom built with the customer determining the look as well as choosing the all-important racing number, which is a traditional part of these builds. The man behind Rat Rod E-Bike, Melchior Verheezen, told us: “A few years ago I pressed my nose against a shop window, with all kinds of bikes on display. Was my passion to create something as beautiful triggered that moment? A zest to build a cool bike for myself? Anyway, my imagination and creativity started to run haywire and, with the help of an acquaintance, I started working on my first E-bike, the BT1.“Its design was inspired by the board track racers which competed on wooden courses before the Great War. Magnificent! My first E-bike got the race number 63—after a…

silver celebrates a golden anniversary

The first motorcycle to be called a super bike, it was aimed at the American market which had not embraced the CB450, primarily because it saw it as too small. Yoshiro Harada, who was in charge of the development project, decided upon the 750cc displacement after learning that Triumph—then riding high in the American export market—was developing a 3-cylinder 750cc engine. Not only was it a success with riders, but also on the race track. When Dick Mann won the Daytona 200 in 1970 on a CB750, Honda dealers were besieged by customers wanting 750/4s.In this country, both the biggest Honda spares and museum collection belongs to David Silver in Suffolk and, on 29th September, there will be an Open Day at the Leiston facility to celebrate the half century…

disappointment for sammy miller

Originally set up in 1964, the museum is one of the finest collections of fully restored motorcycles in the world, including factory racers and rare prototypes. It’s constantly growing as new motorcycle are acquired and virtually every bike in the museum is in full running order. Now 84, 11-times British trials champion Sammy Miller still rides many of the bikes at events throughout the UK and Europe.The museum wanted to build a two storey extension which would house even more bikes as well as more library and archive storage and cataloguing facilities which the museum urgently needs.However, the local planning authority has rejected the application as being too large and on Green Belt land, despite the council’s own development officer praising the museum and highlighting the tourist revenue that it…
