Industry and Supply Inspirations: Ken Fox – Wall of Death Legend
Ken Fox is a living legend, there can be no doubt. A huge name in the motorcycle community, his fame has stemmed from a family business originating in the 1920s. We recently travelled to meet Ken and his family in Ely, Cambridge, and what an experience that was. His experience and passion for classic motorbikes has drawn attention from stars such as Guy Martin and Liam Gallagher’s Beady Eye, to institutions such as the BBC.
We all recall Guy Martin’s impressive attempt to set the world record for the fastest Wall of Death rider in history, and who was the trainer behind the success? Ken and his incredible troupe of riders and mechanics provided 12 months of training and consultations to ensure Guy was prepared for the feat.
The adrenaline-fuelled, heart-racing stunts are endlessly impressive, but what really gets our blood pumping is the selection of vintage Indian Scout motorbikes Ken and his troupe have the pleasure of riding. Of course, we showed off some of our tshirt designs to Ken and his family and we were bolstered by their enthusiasm!
We are now delighted to announce that we have plans to work with Ken and the troupe to produce an exclusive range of Wall of Death T-shirts to be sold at their hair-raising shows, and also via an online shop space. We cannot wait to show you the designs we have in mind so stay tuned for more details on this very exciting venture!
