Just picked up another turn key racebike that I have history with. The original owner built my race engines back in the late 1990's and was the owner of Suzuki of Morristown. Great guy who taught me a lot but at the age of 70 retired from racing to focus on teaching sky diving and flying the plane they jump out of. He sold this bike to my competitor along with his trailer and a race RD 350. Over the years I've sold my competitor engines, heads, carbs wheels and cranks and he said he'd make me a deal I couldn't refuse. So I bought this lovely canary of an 87. One time when my 1216 was down he had loaned me this bike and I went to Jennings and won my first race on it. Not much to look at but it's a 771 with Webb Cams, 38 flat slides, Dyna ignition, Fox shock in the rear and emulators and springs in the front. Total loss with race harness and 17 inch wheel conversion. It's now in my basement and will see some AHRMA duty this year as a backup. I've got an extra blue limited seat that will match the blue stripe and a nice set of PM's to clean it up.
