Damn, there's the dry clutch i want too......
What kind of brakes are those?
I can't tell for positive, but probably is Brembo (given the writing on the gold front calipers and the timeframe).

At the dealer show in indy YEARS ago, they had one on display... last time it was going to be displayed if I remember correctly. It was very sad, there was corrosion starting to eat the mags, the rotors actually had a little rust on them. It looked like they pulled it out of the crate, wiped it down and put it on a stand.
They are rotting away in a warehouse rotting someplace.
There are 2 left, one in a museum in Japan and the other is at the home of a private owner in the states, who is or already did sell it to another private collector.
The bodywork for bike 14 is on gixxer160's race tlr which is the bike I work on. I bought the body originally on ebay. It is carbon kevlar and the shape is different from stock body work just enough that it has quite different airflow around the upper section. I had it on my street bike for a while and when I put the stock bodywork back on very different in wind buffetting on the freeway.
