EDITORS COMMENTS
In this print from BikeSport TT Race Pics, we are transported back to the remarkable years of 1951 and 1952, where a legendary motorcycle known as "The Pankhurst Special" took center stage. Despite our exhaustive search yielding no information about this enigmatic machine, its significance cannot be denied. The photograph showcases Robert Holton astride the spindly contraption that defied convention. With an Albion gearbox and what appears to be a home-brewed double-knocker single engine concealed beneath its massive cover, The Pankhurst Special exudes an air of mystery and innovation. Its ultra-lightweight frame hints at the relentless pursuit of speed and performance that defined those golden years in motorcycle racing history. As we gaze upon this rare glimpse into the past, it becomes evident that The Pankhurst Special was not just another commercial venture but rather a labor of love for both Holton and his team. It represents their unwavering dedication to pushing boundaries and challenging traditional design norms. Capturing the essence of speed, power, and determination in one frozen moment, this print immortalizes Robert Holton's audacious ride during the 1952 Ultra Lightweight TT race. It serves as a reminder that even amidst uncertainty surrounding its origins or purpose beyond racing glory; The Pankhurst Special remains an indelible symbol of passion within the world of motorcycles - forever etched in history's annals.
