Krazy Horse is the UK’s authorised Paton Motorcycle dealer. We distribute these Italian thoroughbreds throughout the UK from our showroom in Bury St Edmunds, Suffolk.
Paton was founded in the late 1950s after Italy’s famous FB Mondial pulled out of Grand Prix racing. It was set up by Giuseppe Pattoni, chief mechanic of FB Mondial GP team, and designer, Lino Tonti. They built only ten race bikes during the 1960s but these bikes raced over 150 times. Later on, the pair switched to building replicas of their race bikes for private competitors riding in ‘classic’ races.
The legendary Italian race-firm Paton has developed a road-going, version of the Kawasaki 650-powered twin that they will raced at the 2014 Isle of Man event in the hands of 26-year-old British rider Olie Linsdell. The Paton S1 Strada bike raced in the Lightweight TT race category and the street-legal version of the bike is available from Krazy Horse.
