Frost is the unique automotive and motorcycle restorers first stop for specialist tools and equipment. After being in the business for almost fifteen years, their business catalogue now contains over a thousand items, and has become the comprehensive manual that every serious restorer should own.

Norfolkline Ferries

Uncle Wayne understands racing himself, and although he is a very, very busy man, says that if I put the Company name on my fairing, he will ship me places - and if absolutely necessary he will let Mike come as well!
Norfolkline is great, it is my first choice for crossing the Channel; with new luxurious ships sailing the route, the service they offer makes the journey fantastic. Thanks Uncle Wayne.

I am really lucky to be able to benefit from Peter's skills, he was quick to generously offer his services after he heard about the project.
To be honest, as with all my special friends on this page, if it wasn't for Peter's help, the project wouldn't happen.

PLJ Photo

Paul and Linda Jones take fantastic photographs. Luckily for me they will be attending all the Supermono Championship events this year, so I will be able to get some great photos of myself. Their excellent website is designed to allow media publications, riders and their sponsors to have access to the vast library of bike and rider digital files that PLJ Photo has built up as photographers for International BikeSport News.
The goal of Paul and Linda has always been to provide pictures that both the riders and media publications like.

Slipstream Tuning

Martin, Roy and Mark at Slipstream, are taking good care of my special bits.
The boys at slipstream have a huge wealth of tuning experience and specialise in singles. They helped to develop the works MuZ Scorpion that Mike rode with great success in the mid 90
's.
When my project concept began to become a reality, there was only one team that Mike would go to for my engine to be tuned - and that was Slipstream.

Sarah and Steve Jordan

Steve and Sarah Jordan both have a racing background so know just what is needed to produce a race machine, luckily for me, they too jumped at the chance to help. They own and run a Suzuki dealership in Great Bookham in Surrey; as a family run and owned dealership, they are proud to be able to offer excellent friendly customer service.

Visordown

Ben Cope runs Visordown - a most comprehensive website, with a concept that is similar to an open book, that's constantly being written in - documenting biking, specifically, UK biking.
However, bikers from across the world can add their experiences; the bikes they've ridden, the mods they've made, the roads they've travelled and every other experience that makes up their biking world. You have the power to shape this; by contributing your stories, your advice, your images and your opinion
.

Watches of Distinction

Giles Waite's business is in high quality watches; in addition to being expert in his particular field, he was one of Mike's competitors back in the late 80's. It helps, as having being a racer, Giles understands all too well what is required to get on track. Giles' assistance has helped towards the realisation of the Gordon project.
