PLC’s Latest Practical Project

For the past academic year as part of their Level Two Service and Maintenance Engineering course a group of students have been undertaking a project to create a custom Café Racer Motorcycle to compete in the National Youth Bike Competition 2016. The students were donated a Kawasaki Z200 from the National Youth Bike organisation, it was an unloved, non-running motorcycle and in an all-round dilapidated condition.

This piece is a real testament to their hard work and perseverance and would stand up next to some professional builds, all work has been done using hand tools and completed to a really high standard, I hope the students are a proud of themselves as we are of them.

We have managed to keep cost to a minimum recycling, refurbishing and fabricating almost all of the parts on the motorcycle.
