It’s the one we’ve all been waiting for. Finally we’ve managed to get the multi-award winning GSX-R 1000-based special ‘Cedzior,’ top photographer Rob Irving, and professional fit burd and Superbike TV presenter Jess Impiazzi into the same room at the same time. We locked them in with a grossly inadequate amount of clothing and told them they weren’t coming out without a truly stunning set of pics. After a couple of hours, this was the result.
Cedzior features a breathed-on GSX-R 1000 engine in a hand-built frame, with plenty of unique details including the belt drive conversion, twin nitrous bottle feeds under the tailpiece and a frankly stunning level of attention to detail. It’s one of the most hotly anticipated spread bikes we’ve run in recent years.
Elsewhere in issue #232 Clink's got all the jibber jabber on Mr T's GSX, whilst we knuckle down with Dusty’s Germanic-style FireBlade and go flat out for a beautiful XS650 tracker. We get all worldly and international with a late model turbocharged R1 from Australia, an Italian dragbike-inspired custom Tuono, a South African Z900 and yet another awesome creation from serial US streetfighter builder, Full Of Hate.
We’ve got event coverage from Verona, a ProFile on Mick Butler and a fascinating addition to our ‘Anatomy Of…’ technical series. This feature rolls up its sleeves and delves, elbows-deep, into a dedicated Moto Gymkhana bike to find out precisely which modifications are made to get around the sport’s tight, technical courses in the quickest possible time. And we’ve got our usual choice blend of news, announcements, product reviews, illustrations and lots, lots more.
Subscribers should get their copies very soon, whilst the mag goes on sale next Thursday (04/04).
April the Fourth be with you. Er, no, hang on…
