Wooden Sheds and Featherbeds
The decision to start Works Racing Motor Cycles Ltd. was taken by founders Patrick Walker and Miles Robinson on the members- lawn at the Goodwood Revival in 2008
Whether it was the intoxicating Goodwood atmosphere or the Veuve Clicquot, it seemed like a very good idea at the time; and the passage of time has shown it to be a most excellent one. Patrick and Miles are lifelong Manx Norton enthusiasts. Miles owns a large and impressive collection of important Bracebridge Street hardware and has been involved at the top level in classic bike racing for many years. Miles has provided bikes for riders of the quality of Wayne Gardner, Glen English, Bill Swallow and Chris Palmer and counts Senior Manx Grand Prix, Goodwood revival and Lansdowne Championship wins among his achievements.YT: Xd199_H48fk WorkshopPatrick runs the technical side of the business.
