big oil, positive feedback will always be forthcoming on this thread. It's a 'go to first' part of the forum.

Which is why it worries me a bit to see you pissing off other forum members and courting disfavour with the moderators.  :-\

I appreciate your concern, I understand I can be very opinionated and polarizing.  The overwhelming majority of forum members are nice to deal with, but there's also some blindingly stupid liberals on this site too and I've never gotten along well with leftists with my love for freedom of speech. 

At the end of the day, if I get banned for life, it won't affect me as it's very clear the forum is owned and moderated by bias leftists.  There's a different set of rules for leftists vs conservatives.

That  Yamaha FZR750 is a stunning bike but I'm left a bit confused by the Honda colour scheme.

I'm not sure, DB, it was a very limited edition motorbike built in small numbers.

I can't remember what year(s) it was, but for a few years here in the US, Yamaha's color scheme on their dirt bikes was magenta and white.  Occasionally, Yamaha has offered red n white bikes as well, so they may have been doing the same with the OW01.

Power:      55.5 hp @ 12,750 rpm
B x S:          55 x 42 mm
Displacement:   399 cc
Valves:       DOHC, gear driven
Fuel:         Four Keihin 34mm CV carbs
Trans:         6-speed
Suspension:     Front telescopic forks, rear single shock
Brakes:        Front twin disc and single rear disc
Weight:         375 pounds

1996
Laverda
650 Formula


Country:       Italy
Engine:      Oil-cooled parallel twin 4-stroke
Ignition:      Electronic
Power:      70 hp @ 8,900 rpm
B x S:          78.5 x 69 mm
Displacement:   688 cc
Valves:       DOHC
Fuel:         Weber-Marelli fuel injection
Trans:         6-speed
Suspension:     Front 40 mm White Power inverted telescopic forks, rear single shock
Brakes:        Front and rear discs
Weight:         390pounds
Top Speed:       125 mph

Any Laverda is an instant classic.  The Formula is a modern version of the Montjuic Endurance Racers of the 1970s.  An unusual feature is that the motor is oil-cooled; two large radiators handle engine heat.  Also, the gas tank is located under the seat to give a low center of gravity.  Laverda uses only the best quality European components to produce their unique machines, which unfortunately are not available in the U.S.A.

1988
Ducati
750 Paso


Country:       Italy
Engine:     Air-cooled 90 degree V-twin 4-stroke
Ignition:      Kokusan CDI
Power:      72 hp @ 8,000 rpm
B x S:          88 x 61.5 mm
Displacement:   748 cc
Valves:       SOHC, belt driven, desmodromic valve actuation
Fuel:         Single two barrel Weber carb
Trans:         5-speed
Suspension:     Front telescopic forks, rear single shock
Brakes:        Front and rear discs
Weight:         474 pounds
Top Speed:       135 mph

The 750 Paso was named in memory of popular Italian road racer, Renzo Pasolini.  The most striking and controversial feature of the Paso was the enclosed styling that hid the motor from view, a first for Ducati.

i almost bought one of these when i was 20,  went with a ZZR 400 instead. pity because that ZZR was very slow, was ZZR black with blue detail/stripes, i rebuilt it and sprayed it eddy lawson green with silver detail/stripes and powder coated rims, looked savage. slow and savage.  :thumleft: we had a lot of 'grey' imports on the 400cc here in south africa.  :3some:

I had signed the dotted line on a 750S in 1999, just to be confused by the salesman into buying the 650 Pegasso - hated that bike.  The Laverda was the best ride I had ever had on a superbike.  Not fast, but the handling was excellent.

1993
Moto-Guzzi
Daytona


Country:       Italy
Engine:       Air-cooled 90 degree V-twin cylinder 4-stroke
Ignition:      Weber-Marelli digital
Power:      100 hp @ 8,000 rpm
B x S:          90 x 78 mm
Displacement:   992 cc
Valves:       SOHC, 4 valves per cylinder
Fuel:         Weber-Marelli injection
Trans:         5-speed
Suspension:     Front Marzoochi telescopic forks, rear Koni single shock
Brakes:        Front twin disc and single rear disc
Weight:         473 pounds
Top Speed:       160 mph

It is unusual to see a Moto Guzzi, or any Italian bike in any other color but red.  This Daytona was repainted by the Guzzi distributor in this country and sent back to the factory in Italy for evaluation, but the powers that be decided to stay with the traditional logo and color.  The motor has been modified to produce 5 additional horsepower over stock.

Power:      75 hp @ 9,000 rpm
B x S:          88 x 61.5 mm

The Montjuich was a limited edition version of the F1, a race replica.  Only 200 of these machines were built, each one bearing a special plaque with the serial number.  Montjuich is a famous racetrack in Spain where Ducati had many successes.

Had forgotten that Ducati, if you had asked me about a Montjuich I would have said Laverda, they made a 500 vertical twin called that.  :thumleft:
Yes, It's a Land Cruiser, if I had wanted a Hummer I would have called your sister.

I may have a pic of the Laverda Montjuich from the museum.

I'll take a look  :thumleft:
