This is the Icon Sheene – a 250bhp turbocharged tribute to the late great Barry Sheene.

The bike – which is revealed in this week’s MCN – was designed and built by Andrew Morris who has dubbed it ‘the ultimate road bike’.

Morris said: “Barry Sheene was a hero – of mine and everyone else. I believe the Icon Sheene is a fitting tribute to this remarkable man and I’m very fortunate to have his family’s backing for the project.”
