The Royal Enfield Continental GT650. Designed as a collaboration with Harris Performance. The chassis and suspension were designed by Lester Harris and his team, and Harris parts were used in the build. The intention has been to make the bike race ready. This was shown at Bike Shed London 2019 recently.
A victory at Le Castellet during the weekend of 10-12 May for the Team Force team. Such a lot of work has been put into this, so well done to all involved.
Riders Gian and Bruno rode the Harris F1 Suzuki during the Endurance Classic race and their strategy paid off. Behind the scenes the mechanics Alain, Italo and Jean-Jacques worked hard supporting the team managed by Christian Hames.
We hope this hard work also pays off at the next round at the Championship in Oschersleben.

Having been so busy supplying orders for TZ frames at the beginning of 2018, we have made every effort to “get in front of the game”. We have built a batch of frames for immediate delivery in an effort not to disappoint, and to accommodate quickly those building their 2019 classic race bikes during the winter.
Please refer to the TZ frame page of our web site for product detail and/or call us to discuss.
World record (to be confirmed by FIM) for Royal Enfield.
A drag sprint bike instigated by the Special Projects Team at the Bruntingthorpe, Royal Enfield Technical Centre recently captured a land speed record of approaching 160mph at the Bonneville Salt Flats.
A production Royal Enfield 650cc twin engine prepared for the attempt by American master tuners S&S, housed in a chassis designed, developed and built by Harris Performance (a unit of Eicher Motors Ltd) and ridden by Cayla Rivas culminated in the World Land Speed record.
Conditions and “the salt” were perfect for the attempt, the S&S Royal Enfield engine ran like a dream, the chassis was stable and Cayla was on her game, the combination was a well-deserved world record.
In addition to the production development work we undertake for Royal Enfield, we also get involved in some very surprising concept bikes.
The drag bike shown here with Alan Cathcart aboard is a good example.
The design brief was to build a custom/show bike, using the new twin engine, that could also acquit itself well in a couple of European drag races. Mission accomplished we think.
This is a beautiful example of a Harris Magnum 4 pictured here in the car park of the Hertford unit last week.
These iconic chassis kits are in still in great demand and still manufactured and supplied by Harris.
This stunning example was built by our long term customer Danny Ollard. Contact Harris to discuss your ultimate super bike.
Congratulations to Christian Hames and the Belgium Team Force for winning one of the toughest endurance races in the world, the ‘UK’s 4hr Classic Endurance Race’. Many of the riders are ex/still top of EWC, SBK, BSK, IRRC champions. This was held at Donington Park over the weekend of May 12-13th 2018.
Following a misfortune of the Castellet, the motorcycle was rebuilt and Harris Performance’s technicians rebuilt the frame.
At the same Classic race event (Graham Veryard Racing, Harris TZ Yamaha), had superb race wins in their class.
The sun shone on this Classic Event at Donington Park. All events were very well supported, well done everybody.
Often new is not what you want or not available!!! Accidents happen, things CAN be repaired/reclaimed……..What a relief.
Take a look at what our engineers have done to reconstruct a customers aluminium fuel tank. There was substantial damage as a consequence of a racing incident, due to lead time new was not an option. Our workshop has rebuilt the tank with great care, it is now ready for a new paint job. What craftsmanship!
