Jon Lee’s brilliant Classic Mini bike engine conversion kit sold originally via his Lynx AE operation has recently been under a new company called Auto Concepts run by John Boyland. His dad, Ray is an ace hot rod builder, incidentally.

The Boylands did some nice development work on the kit but decided to move the project on late last year.

It is now available under the Gixermini banner, which is part of Classic Mini expert, Graham Bennett’s Gloucester-based Bennett Built Motorsport where I think it is assured a good future given Graham’s reputation for quality work.

We’ll be bringing you more on this one soon.
