Precision Engineer and Ducati Enthusiast

Discussion in 'Welcome Lounge' started by Sports Motorcycles, Sep 15, 2016.

  1. Hello. My name's Glyn Robinson. I'm a precision engineer and have spent my whole life taking apart and putting together motorcycles. Originally from Yorkshire, I now live in Kerikeri, New Zealand, where I run a motorcycle business with a small race team of beautiful Ducatis. We frequent Hampton Downs and Taupo racetrack and made it to Phillip Island earlier this year. Enjoyed it so much and hoping to make it a regular event.

  11. Yep, that's me! Steve lives just down the road. We used to work together and he very kindly handed me the reins to the old company. He's doing really well - currently building a Tiger Moth. If you track us down on Facebook we've just posted a load of old Mike Hailwood memorabilia, including his TT contract.
  12. One of the Scottish Laverda blokes on The Laverda Forum has bought a set of your emulators after I posted the facebook post linked to me from The Classic Italian Motorcycle club so words is out about your gadgets. I have the racetech ones in 3 of my bikes.I like your new design.Nice F1 as well
