Box set 3 'Rhencullen'

£350.00 Coming Soon

Rhencullen
Rhencullen is one of Peter Williams’ favourite sections of the TT course. Williams was a highly competitive motorcycle racer - with ten TT podium finishes under his belt - but he’s also known for his engineering prowess. In the late 1960s Williams developed the cast magnesium ‘MAG’ wheel, which are now on virtually all modern motorcycles. He also designed and developed disc brakes, tubeless tyres and, on the 1973 John Player Norton, the twin-spar frame. He first rolled out his ‘cast’ wheeled motorcycle to make its debut in 1968 but it was dubbed the ‘wheelbarrow’ because of its then unusual appear-ance. Williams would have the last laugh, however: the cast wheel changed the face of TT racing - not to mention motorcycling altogether, enabling faster speeds and greater agility. And as for tubeless tyres - this meant punctures were no long-er a common incident. Indeed, motorcycling owes a great deal to Peter Williams.
