Hey Lasse, great pics from the museum!

Do you have any more of the R90S? I've always wondered how the single rear shock setup worked on these racers and also if they had batteries and where they would have put those. It looks like there is a small little box thing underneath the engine that could be a battery?

Thanks :)

2,0 meters tall by the way. It's funny when you see a photo of me on my CB750 and then a photo of my girlfriend on the same bike.

The Fleet

The Fleet, well 3/4 of them (one of which may not be totally air-cooled, but it's still a flat twin!)

So the oil coolers on the 100's are just there for show, eh ...
