Kim Newcombe Konig 500GP Recreation

During 2014 we built a Replica of Kim Newcombe’s 1973 500 Grand Prix machine. Using an authentic replica frame and swingarm built to original drawings with some minor changes. It has been fitted with Ceriani 35mm GP forks, Ceriani 4ls drum front brake and Ceriani 2ls drum rear brake. It is housed with an original Konig engine, fitted with a solex carb which will power a TT industries 6 speed gear box. Every effort has been made to ensure that we built a machine as close to the original as possible, but with minor improvements, such as a electronic igniton system and a belt driven Bob Newby clutch. All of which is used on the Seeley Konig with fantastic results.

Completion is due by April 2015 when hopefully both the Daval Konig and the Kim Newcombe Replica with be exhibited at a venue yet to be confirmed.

We now have built a jig to manufacture frames and are in the process of building a small batch of authentic Konig recreations.
