    His practice bike was a Maico 250 with the radial head.
    That one I could ride.

    Another of my buddy's in high school had one of these little rocket ships.
    Honda 250 Elsinore. It had the narrowest of power bands of any bike I've ever ridden.
    Made it hard to ride. when you hit the power band, it was hang on and hope.

    I've heard of these power bands, were they expensive or hard to install? I figured the rubber would lose its potency with age...
    I heard the red bands were the strongest.

    Why say "No" when it feels so good to say "Yes"....... One would think that me already owning seven 1100 Sports would be enough, but no, no, no...... this bike is way to nice to pass up! So here is my newest addition to the barn. I'm driving up to Chicago next weekend to take her home to her new stable. This silver beauty is a one owner Carb 1995 MG 1100 Sport.


    This bike comes with a full Termignoni exhaust system, carbon front fender, chrome moly push rods,
    heli bars, Ventura rack, Delrin Manifolds, Throttlemeister, and new batteries. The current owner also
    saved all of the original parts like the air box, exhaust, and fender, which will come with this bike.

    I like the way you think! :) I actually have a second yellow 1100 Sport, which I was working on when I took the group picture. I would like a black carb one, but it would be hard to get my hands on a second blue since only 14 of that color bike were sold here in the US.

    I’m still working on this bike.
