I like the shape of the air intakes.
2003 SV 1K
2001 Triumph Speed Triple
2000 SV 650
02 Aprilia Falco - sold to pay some bills
98 TLR - will always be missed
96 GSXR 750 great ol bike
89 FZR 400 Race bike not really missed
90 FZR 600 not missed
81 GS 1100E still missed
What kind of track record did those bikes have or were they only racing in AMA.
The pictures of parts getting trashed as tax right off's are no surprise,that applied to near all stock. (except for what managed to slip out the back door)
At least the Italians have compassion when it comes to racing
There would be very few people on the planet who could actually run a bike like that now based on $$$$ and hard parts to enable race spec rpm's.The hour meter would spiral with every gearshift in the 5 figure zone.
Sadly most old race bikes end up as relics with multiple coats of tyre black on their perishing slicks.
The ones that could turn a wheel in anger end up in glass cases owned by
speculators it seems.
