Product Description

Hesketh Limited Edition Extra – RM Clarke

The Hesketh V1000 was unveiled in April 1980. The press criticised noisy engines, bad gearboxes and slow performance. Production was halted to rectify the problems and it was not until February 1982 that the first bike was delivered. There were still problems with production being hampered by warranty work and so in June 1982 the company collapsed having made little more than 100 machines. In December 1982 Lord Hesketh resumed production privately with the Vampire which resolved earlier problems but it came too late and the company was dissolved with only 37 bikes built. This is a book of contemporary road and comparison tests, specification and technical data, new model introductions, travel, long term reports, buying second hand and history. The models covered include: V1000, V2 Vortan and Vampire.
