    Looks like they adjusted out Jarno's clip-ons. Jarno was known for having his handlebars very tight to the tank.

    I remember that race. Cooley would wheelie all the way down the hill from the bridge! Schlacter had overheating problems and took the lowers off of his TZ and won the race IIRC.

    120 degree V-twin , I've always wanted to experience the feel of one of these. No chance of that , I'm afraid.
