I’ve just finished uploading more details on the frame build here and here. We’ll be covering the swing arm construction later this week.
Dave Pearce and I went to see Altamura Concepts yesterday. What great, enthusiastic bunch of people – all bikers of course. They’ll be doing the paintwork on Enigma 1050. We’re delighted to have them on board. Have a look at them here. They do beautiful, beautiful work.
I’ve added a news archive so you can keep track of the events in the Enigma 1050 project.

The rear bodywork is beginning to take shape and we’ve got designer John Keogh on board to start ceasing some designs for the front end. Larry’s got the wheels ordered from Dymag, Austin Racing are keen to do the exhaust. It’s going to …
Amazing story about us on American site, The Kneeslider. We’ve also had info requests from the Czech Republic and from Russia. Not counting today, the site has had 1640 hits in two weeks which, for an ultra niche project is OK, we think.
Have a look here folks. This is what we saw when we spent a day at Dymag.
