Karen Neill owns and operates Zenith Motorcycles in Tottenham. It took her twenty years to build her business and she would not be one to jump on the "look, it's a female doing a typically male job" bandwagon. She is not into positive discrimination. But she does know what the fuck to do with a motorcycle.
Along with her more than capable team, Karen built Olive (that beautiful bike she is astride) in honour of her grandmother, who raised her along with her grandfather, who worked at the infamous JA Prestwich Industries (JAP). The Mini Cooper pictured in the slideshow above is in honour of him.
Karen Neill, Zenith Motorcycles. Not a female mechanic.
A great mechanic.
