14 Jul Skidstar GT-R

This one’s been a long time in the making. Like almost 50 years. Skidstar GT was one of our most iconic bikes of the last 60s/early 70s. Anyone who owned one of these was the envy of the neighbourhood. So revered is the Skidstar that collectors and restorers still meet up in parks today to show their rides and resto’s and keep the Skidstar flame alive. We poured our hearts and souls into making sure this Ltd edition ‘re-boot’ of the classic, was not only true to the original, but built upon it with modern materials, construction techniques and components. Now get out and cut some
sick skids on it!!
