SIXTY YEARS OF ‘WHEELY’ GREAT WORK

An impressive sixtieth anniversary this year for Thruxton-based Moto-Lita, founded by Simon Green in 1958.

The wheels have been signed by Simon Green and have a bespoke billet centre-cap and has a retail price of £350, which is a small price to pay for such fine craftsmanship.
