There where high hopes for the first British motorcycle in a long time but only about 250 Hesketh V1000 where ever built. The engine alone weighed in at 220lbs (100kgs) and unreliability plagued the first batch, however it remains a beautiful looking machine. Being so rare I always wondered if I would ever see a Hesketh in the flesh and low and behold a mate of a mate has one. He bought it from a museum and it is a very impressive machine.
To bad it was not a success and good on Lord Hesketh for having a go. In the end he just ran out of money. The rooster is the Hesketh logo.
Maybe the name or the concept of a British V twin will surface again one day. I hope so.

What a machine. Even now it looks amazing...but I am stuck for a background. Let me know what I should use as a background that will reflect the impact the CBX1000 Super Sport made on the motorcycle industry. It has taken about 3 weeks to get this far and I would like to get it finished soon. Should it be a tornado or an explosion or maybe Godzilla? What do you think? Please leave a suggestion.
