this one's for you barse, you know why. respect due.

gene romero, this is probably one of the coolest pictures ever, flat track racer in road race leathers, white, no armour with stripes and the number one plate, don't get no better than that, read 'em and weep wannabee's.

xr 750. lick.

harley davidson sundance xrtt racer.

jimmy the mod, phil daniels in quadrophenia, i can remember seeing the film at the flea-pit in east street and going back the next night to watch it again, classic, must pick up a copy, one of those i pick up every time i go into hmv then put back on the rack and buy a dodgy '70's kung-fu film instead, lesley ash was fit then too, shame she ended up with trout lips.

ducati 600ss, built for the desmodue race series, guy selling it hasn't got the time to race it, on sale on e-bay for £1500, you could be racing this next season......................................

great vintage firestone tyre ad, like the way the guy has his left hand on the inside of the bar for wind resistance, shame he hasn't got his right hand on the throttle, not sure about the beret and goggles combo, looks a bit like captain sensible out of the damned or frank in 'some mother's do have 'em' ooh betty!

boxer racer, serious bike, engine raised in frame for ground clearance, twin plugged, monoshock, 'right way up' forks but with brembo mono-block calipers, oil cooler, deep sump conversion, classic bmw race seat and fairing and a lovely racing exhaust, oh yeah, and a standard fuel tank with knee rubbers, mint.
