Dave Redgate 55, from Orpington, Kent
Dave has been riding, building and racing motorcycles for the last 40 years, from Cafe Racing on the streets to racing in the Macau GP, from Club racing to World Superbikes and World Endurance
He has built cafe racers, race bikes, classic bikes and vintage bikes, two stroke engines and four stroke engines.
Dave always raced as a privateer on bikes that he looked after himself and competed against the best, getting many front row starts and top finishes at British Superbikes, F1 and Supersport races during 1989 to 1994 seasons and also raced in some World Superbike rounds in 94.
He has an unbeaten 350cc race record, and a Superbike lap record at Lydden that has stood since 1994.
Some of his successes include: 1985 Lord of Lydden, 1985 Dennis Trollop 1300cc Championship, 1985 Champion of Snetterton, 1989,  9th British Superbike Championship,  1992 8th in BSB Supersport  Championship, 1993 2nd UK riders 600 championship., 1993  11th in the 24hr Bol’d’or World Endurance.

At the latter end of the 90’s he got a Kawasaki ZX7RR which he used to make and have made some performance parts including carbon fibre bodywork/air boxes, aluminium brackets etc. It was on this bike that John Campbell supported Dave supplying a titanium silencer which John would repack on a regular basis.
John also built a road going stainless system for Dave’s road Kawasaki ZX7.

After Dave’s racing career he ran a team in the British supersport championships “Team Buff” running Kawasaki ZX6’s in 2006/7 followed by Triumph 675 daytona’s in 2008. Then Dave retired from racing to start rebuilding Vintage & classic bikes.
