I still remember the sound of the Lawson replica Kawasaki's coming down the straight. But it really only took that one 83 season to make them mostly obsolete. Of course the Interceptors didn't rein for long, as the Yamaha 5-valve arrived the next year and then following that the GSX.
Still have an original copy of Freddie on #43 up on my shop wall. It's falling apart but never fails to bring a smile to my face.
Wish I still had the 83 VF750
