With the aid of some other crackpot spirits, they attempt to resurrect The Phantom Manufacturing Company – Makers of Sporting Motorbikes for Discerning Gentlemen – which closed mysteriously in 1929. All this to preserve the spirits of its long-departed employees. As the adventure unfolds, they find themselves working alongside ghosts inside an Edwardian factory, all the time feeling, and indeed becoming, younger! But such second chances do not come without sacrifice – something every Edwardian accepts with grace but which modern man finds very difficult. This story of the living and the dead, all working together, offers up lashings of jocularity and ginger beer, and a smashing crescendo at the famous Brooklands race track.
