Back in our Novem­ber is­sue we did a ma­jor fea­ture on the P&M Kawasaki range of racing mo­tor­cy­cles, so this story caught our eye! Ox­ford Prod­ucts has sup­ported racing for a very long time and their found­ing chair­man Alec Ham­mond was left speech­less when he was reunited with an old friend. Ox­ford MD An­drew Ham­mond, as­sisted by Julie Bur­gan, pre­sented Alec with the very Peck­ett and Mcnab Kawasaki which fu­elled Alec’s racing pas­sion nearly 40 years pre­vi­ously. Frame num­ber 34 was hunted down by Ox­ford Prod­ucts’ Clas­sic TT team owner Stafford Evans, who then fet­tled the clas­sic racing Kawasaki, adding the fin­ish­ing touch of a painted let­ter­box fair­ing as used in the 1979 TT. At that time, Les Bur­gan and Rod Scivyer raced it in the For­mula 1 se­ries along­side roads le­gends such as Ron Haslam, Graeme Crosby and Mike Hail­wood. That year, Les (whose widow Julie pre­sented the bike to Alec), won the North Glouces­ter MCC Cham­pi­onship on this ac­tual ma­chine. It now stands in Ox­ford Prod­ucts’ re­cep­tion area in pride of place. Don’t for­get that our friends at Ox­ford Prod­ucts do a mas­sive range of bike kit.
