A half price Minichamps Rossi replica at Grand Prix Legends

It can’t be true can it? Well it is.

For a limited time only, we are offering Minichamps’ 1:12 replica of Valentino Rossi’s 2001 Honda NSR500 from that year’s Le Mans race at an astonishing half price.

So for just £21.49, you can pick up a limited edition Valentino Rossi replica from Germany’s finest 1:12 model makers. The replica itself features a one off barcode design on the fairing panels as, due to French legislation, the Honda team was unable to run with its usual Nastro Azzurro sponsorship. The numbers underneath the barcode are the date of the race, 200501, and then three of Rossi’s customary 46s. The bike is limited to just 9546 pieces worldwide, and numbers are low, so if you want to secure one at this unbelievable price, click here.

The Ultimate Riding Outfit - by Christopher Paul

I’ve been riding bikes for more than 25 years. Outside of work, it’s my thing, so to speak.

My decision to take Grand Prix Legends business into motorcycle protective wear was, in truth, based as much on a personal interest as on hard commercial logic.

In fact, when I first made enquiries, I was advised by a number of high profile importers and distributors in the motorcycle business that the internet would never work for bike clothing!

But the reason I wanted to offer protective wear was because I was pretty disappointed with what I came across in most motorcycle shops.

Of course, there were exceptions, but most dealers seemed to want to offer only the cheapest, fastest-selling lines. Anything different, anything more interesting and unusual and they didn’t appear interested.

Yet, having visited some of the international bike shows, I knew there was some fantastic gear out there.

My mission, therefore, became to put together a catalogue and ‘internet shop’ that offered only the best, most technical, most stylish and most individual gear money could buy. Read the rest of this entry »
