Razor Cars now going topless
Posted by Madabout News on Saturday, June 30th, 2012 at 08:19 PM

Razor Cars of Wigan are a new company but the men behind it have years of experience creating top quality kit cars and the new 3 wheel Razor is no exception.

Modern, individual design and great quality fabrication and construction are sure to see the order books fill up for Razor, now being offered as topless with the option of a full canopy.

Razor Cars was founded by John Barlow and David Chapman who have a reputation for producing top quality kit cars for the past thirty years. The Company operates from premises in Lancashire alongside Imperial Motor Company, which is also run by John and Dave.

The body of the Razor is manufactured from self-coloured lightweight GRP which is superbly styled and detailed. This is bonded, at the factory, to a galvanized steel backbone chassis to ensure perfect alignment of the two. The engine, rear swing arm, rear wheel, fuel tank etc. are all fitted to a separate sub frame which is assembled off the vehicle then attached to the chassis with just four bolts. The seats and interior of the car are moulded into the main body leaving only the footwell moulding to be fitted by the customer.

The front suspension is seven style unequal length upper and lower wishbones and adjustable coil over shock absorbers. Rear suspension is taken care of by Razor's own swing arm to carry the huge rear wheel and tyre and twin adjustable coil over shock absorbers.

Power comes from a Hyabusa 1300 or KTM 525 with reverse gear although Razor will try and accommodate an engine of your choice.
