Headed up by workshop founders Mathieu and Sebastien the 6 man strong FCR crew customise modern and classic motorcycles as well as performing nut and bolt restorations on vintage bikes. With a skill set that includes structural welding, composite manufacturing, metalworking and custom paintwork most projects are completed entirely in house and the W Racer was no exception.
To stiffen up the W650's notoriously sloppy rear suspension a set of exposed spring, Hagon shocks were then fit to the bike. Up front clip on bars, a new FCR designed and built top clamp and custom mounting gear for the fairing was also bolted in place. The fairing itself was also designed and made especially to fit the W inhouse at FCR from fibreglass before being shot in a bold pearlescent yellow.
To finalise the riding position rear set foot pegs were added and a suede covered, low profile seat upholstered to match the new seat pan. Basic tuning improvements on the W Racer come from adding pair of K&N pod filters, rejetting the carbs and fabricating a pair of custom made exhaust headers and mufflers.
