A Legend

By ‘Legend’ I could be referring to my first XJR1300SP for she was a bit special in my eyes —


But – I am in fact referring to the Legend Race Car —


The bike and the race car have something in common in that Legends raced in the UK are powered by 1295cc air-cooled motors culled from the XJR 1300 road bike —

UK tour 041

The chassis are imported from the USA and assembled complete with the XJR motor and gearbox units —

UK tour 044

at Scotland’s Knockhill Race Circuit in Fife —

UK tour 042

The motors have all been stripped – checked – and rebuilt to an identical state of tune —

UK tour 043

so all you have to do is pay your money and go racing —
