Classic Bike (UK) - - News -

After win­ning BHR BEARS cham­pi­onships in 2013 and 2015 with his BMW K100RS, Ben King­ham of BSK Speedworks took an­other Ger­man shaft-drive four found un­der a hedge and turned it into an en­durance racer to co-ride with Stacey Kil­worth. King­ham’s busi­ness spe­cialises in per­for­mance parts for the Ks and his ex­per­tise was re­warded with top spot in the F1 Clas­sic class and 18th over­all.

The fly­ing brick has a stan­dard chas­sis with mod­i­fied sus­pen­sion and quick-re­lease wheels. A stain­less four-into-one ex­haust is a cat­a­logued BSK prod­uct, while the fuel in­jec­tion sys­tem was de­vel­oped for Mini A-series car en­gines that use a K dohc topend. Ig­ni­tion is trig­gered by a ro­tor in a neat see-through box and pow­ered by a light lithium bat­tery, changed at each pit stop.
