KEVIL’S SPEED SHOP

Motorcycle News (UK) - - FEATURE -

6Kev Hill (ged­dit?) set up cus­tom shop in Tor­bay eight years ago. Ini­tially spe­cial­is­ing in pared-down BMW box­ers, he’s moved on to high- end builds for the likes of David Beck­ham and TV ac­tor Matt Bar­dock, and has ex­ported bikes to the US, Ja­pan, Canada, South Amer­ica and main­land Europe. “With the grow­ing rar­ity (and prices) of donor box­ers, Kevil’s have di­ver­si­fied to pro­duce a wide port­fo­lio of café rac­ers, street scram­blers, bob­bers and Brat-styles based on bikes as varied as the R ninet, SR 400 and 500, W650, Honda 250s and 400s, and even Dom­i­na­tor 650s. Right now, a CBX1000 is in the process of be­ing turned into a café racer with a mod­ern twist. Kevil’s also have com­pleted cus­tom bikes for sale, donor bikes ripe for con­ver­sion and even of­fer fi­nance and global ship­ping.”
