    Well, I'll see your standard TZ750:

    (this is me at Pukekohe on a TZ750C);

    and I'll raise you one:


    [​IMG]


    TZ750A special, called "Monoca", with Harris monoshock conversion, TZ350 barrels, lots of other mods, and 152rwhp. This pic is at Phillip Island. My first race on it was in the wet at Pukekohe, 183mph - on wets, fortunately. The thing could fly, but it was a bastard in corners because the power delivery was crazy stupid: 55rwhp at 8K, 110 at 9,200, 152 at 10,600, said to be BANG at 11K. The tape on the alloy pipe cover on the LH fairing side was to give me a bit of cornering wear warning before the track surface went rubbing through the alloy and the pipe, causing seizure (don't ask how I knew to be warned...).

    Enjoy the RS, they are the truly fun. I rode and raced TZ250's (Kenny Roberts Jr.'s old bike before he started into the GP circuit, and an RZ500 with FZR1000 front end a fully built Ross Baron motor, ahh the memories:evil) and thought the Aprilla was crap in comparison. You'll really enjoy your new thoroughbred!!!

    Just curious how you'll keep the crank going as I heard they were impossible to get or source and almost impossible to rebuild. My info is more than eight years old so maybe there's new data out.

    Best of luck with the new toy. Pure functionality at its sweetest:clap.
