This site is an affectionate tribute to the unique Peel Cars from the Isle of Man.
Years ahead of their time, and produced in the context of the ‘lean years’ of post-war Britain, there is still nothing quite like a Peel on the road today.
As the art of fibre glassing developed Peel Engineering started to produce what was to be one of their most successful lines, motor cycle fairings.
The first, a full ‘Dustbin’, is believed to have been made in 1952 for an Australian visitor to the TT Races.
Various other shapes were produced for different bikes including one for Geoff Duke who asked for a ‘Dolphin’ style to fit a Manx Norton.
In conjunction with Geoff the Dolphin fairing was tested and further developed on the Island, with some testing done in Monza.
A full production version was offered in 1957 and latterly there were a
number of different Dolphin style fairings. The Dustbin was also manufactured with a PVC screen and aluminium beading round the edge and were intended for road bikes.
