kinda barn find
well boys thought id better put this up here. long story short.
seen on here a mucky old firestorm sitting in galway. drove all fecking day in fog to oick it up and a few had been to look at it. im taking it that they didnt realise what they were standing infront of or what the sad thing was really worth:woots:.to be honest being a vtr addict i knew what it was and what it was worth. one of only six spondons made for british championship and endurance racing was what is was. standard engine apart the yokes and front brakes had been nabbed at some point but small fry compared to what was left. the dymags are worth more than i payed for the entire bike. and the motor thats in it is decent donkey.
anyhow brought it home. give it a good clean to get the filth of it and heres what im left with.
so after checking with honda it is the real deal. they sent me the paperwork confirming the bike went straight from HRC to the UK race team. british superbike spec chassis for the road:woots:. fecking get in..
still has the correct wheels.rear brake.disc. swingarm.shock, linkages. and the frame bracing ears but also the internal bracing and revolution racing forks which makes it one of the very early bikes…
so come spring time it will be roadworthy and track day ready..
cheers for the heads up whoever it was put the donedeal add on here, i owe you a few drinks.:thumbsup2::thumbsup2:
