How one Suzuki Katana raised over £10,000 for the MS Society.
“The coming together of one man’s vision to build a motorcycle in aid of the ‘MS Society UK’ following on from John Martin’s wife’s MS diagnoses. The founder, John Martin of ACS (Air Cooled Suzuki), a group devoted to the Japanese classic motorcycle. With support for the build from around the UK and worldwide (including the involvement of Katana specialists) the plan came together during the COVID-19 lockdown. The completed Katana was ridden on ITV4’s The Motorbike Show with Henry Cole and Allen Millyard.
John saw the build through to completion. An absolutely stunning motorcycle was created. The build had him and Florence sitting at the computer searching for every single nut, bolt or washer. Sadly, John was diagnosed with aggressive pancreatic liver cancer. He succumbed to the illness and passed away on the 2nd of November 2021. He leaves behind Florence and his two sons, John and Jack. John’s funeral was held on the 25th of November 2021. The bike has been sold for over £12,000 with £11,000 being donated to the MS Society.”
